The Importance of Conservation

What is the importance of conservation areas? 
Conservation areas in particular are important in order to protect the   amenity value of a place. For example, Local Planning Authorities are  
obliged to designate areas for conservation on their land that may have  
special architectural/ historical interest– where the preservation of the  
character/ appearance is seen as beneficial to the amenity value. This also  
introduces control over the demolition of the landscape, as the destruction  
of natural habitat poses a threat to wildlife.  

Where are conservation areas usually designated? 
Conservation areas widely vary in character; dependent upon their designation by the local authority. The character of a conservation area  
doesn’t originate from the quality of the buildings, it originates from the  
elements of historic road layouts and pathways to the characteristics of  
housing estates and the general features of the local environment. How 
ever, these specific conservation areas can be designated over historic cities, towns and villages as well as country estates and historic parks.  


To protect wildlife… 
Conservation areas are important in order to protect wildlife and to promote the biodiversity of the area. They also  provide support in maintaining healthy and functional ecosystems.

Very impressed with Dr Stump; quick, professional, courteous, tidy and VERY good at what they do! – Very impressed with the way they work and the amount they can get done in a short time. – Highly recommended.

Really good company, very reliable, came and removed quite a few stumps from our woodland very quickly and efficiently, and careful about not doing damage to the surrounding area. Highly recommended, we will use them again.

I would recommend this company to anyone they have just taken 7 large poplar trees down for us. Arrived as arranged, a pleasure to have in our garden for several days, then left the site neat and tidy.
