JOIN THE BIG CONSERVATION CONVERSATION
Research by Historic England, shows that only a small majority of those surveyed who live in a Conservation Area (56%) were aware that they actually live in one. This suggests a need to raise awareness. This is exactly what Altrincham and Bowdon Civic Society did. We need community groups across the country to get involved in our Big Conservation Conversation campaign and celebrate where they live for Civic Day 2018.
Looking after conservation areas is a responsibility shared by those of us who live, work or do business in them as well as those of us whose job it is to manage them or make decisions about their future. Yet 56% of people do not even realise that they live in a conservation area. Conservation Areas must be protected - they have an important role as we look to the future and can help councils, civic groups and communities to preserve what's really special for future generations to enjoy.
We want communities across England to get involved with protecting and enhancing their conservation area, either individually or through groups. In previous years. groups have helped to prepare character appraisals and management plans for conservation areas whilst others have carried out their own assessments to identify management issues.
Say "My Conservation Area Matters" and support our campaign.
