We are gathering evidence through our various campaigns to ensure conservation areas are given greater resources and protection because we want to see
improved community awareness and understanding of the nature and value of Conservation Areas
stronger support for Conservation Areas among politicians and policymakers, national and local
more Conservation Areas protected from damaging change.
With the support of Laura Sandys, the civic movement will be raising awareness of conservation areas and we want you to show your support.

FIND YOUR NEAREST CONSERVATION AREA AT RISK
The number of conservation areas at risk is at least 491 in 2018, down from 502 in 2017.
This means that 6% per cent of England’s conservation areas are now considered to be at risk. With funding cuts and continued pressure on local authority conservation staff (48 per cent of conservation advice lost to local government lost since 2007), the problem is likely to get worse.
The Big Conservation Conversation was launched by Civic Voice to reverse this trend. We are being supported by the APPG for Civic Societies and Civic Voice's Vice-President, Laura Sandys.
