The West End Conservation Area was formally designated by the City Council on 2 October 2008.
It has been created by the amalgamation of two existing conservation areas, Daneshill and Westcotes Drive, and the addition of properties of the Ukrainian Catholic Church and Hall on Fosse Road South; and properties at 101-107 Hinckley Road and 2-70 Fosse Road South. The Daneshill and Westcotes Drive Conservation Areas were designated in 1987 and 1989 respectively, covering an area of about 9 hectares. The enlarged conservation area covers an area of 11.11 hectares. A Character Appraisal for the conservation area has been prepared.
Some properties within the West End Conservation Area are covered by Article Four Directions, which limit the rights of householders to carry out work to their properties without planning permission. For further details, view:
