Conservation areas are distinct parts of the historic environment of Wrexham County Borough. We (the local planning authority) designate these areas for their special architectural or historic interest.

The special interest of a conservation area is expressed through a combination of characteristics. Examples of these characteristics include the:

  • pattern of settlement
  • organisation of space and buildings plots
  • network of routes
  • style and type of buildings, including their materials/detailing

Green infrastructure is also important and parks, gardens, hedges, trees and water features can all contribute to the character of a conservation area.
