The West End conservation area was created in 2008 by the joining up of several areas and properties to create a contiguous area.
A character appraisal can be viewed below.
The parts of the conservation area, which formed the Daneshill and Westcotes Drive conservation areas are covered by Article 4 Directions, which limit the rights of householder to alter their properties without planning permission. The directions relate only to the areas which formed the old conservation areas.
The effect of the Article 4 direction on these properties is that a planning application must be submitted for most exterior alterations.
