Conservation Areas

Given the protection they provide, Conservation Areas are important in Planning decision making as the June 2020 application for the re-development of the Grey House School amply demonstrated.

Today, five conservation areas cover the majority of the village including the High Street and five greens (Hunts Common, Causeway Green, Cricket Green, the (Oaks) Common and Phoenix Green) but excluding large areas of 20th & 21st century housing to the north-west and south-east and the new estates at St Mary’s Park and Hartley Row. Within the Parish there are five more such designated areas – Church Farm, Dipley, Elvetham, Hartfordbridge, West Green

A review is currently underway (June 2020) to amend and update the existing appraisal dated 2008 which can be found on Hart DC’s website.
