Local Designations

The Borough Council has adopted criteria that may be used to determine whether buildings, landscapes or areas are worthy of designation either as Locally Listed Buildings, Locally Registered Gardens or as Conservation Areas.

Conservation Areas

A Conservation Area is an area "of special architectural or historic interest, the character or appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance”.

Conservation Areas are designated by the Local Planning Authority, under the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990.

There are 22 Conservation Areas in the Borough of Erewash. Click to see a map of the Conservation Area:

Breadsall Ockbrook Moravian

Conservation Area Consent

The consent of the Borough Council is required for the total or substantial demolition of any building with a cubic content exceeding 115m3 (about the size of a double garage). You can make an online application through the planning portal by clicking on the link below: 

Please note that it is a criminal offence to undertake such works without consent.

Please download our leaflet to find out more about the implications of living in a conservation area by clicking on the link below: 

The Borough Council conducts a rolling programme of character appraisals and management plans for each of its Conservation Areas.

Works to Trees

Anyone intending to cut down, top, lop or uproot any tree in a Conservation Area must give the District Council six weeks notice of their intention to do so. This gives the District Council the opportunity to consider making a Tree Preservation Order where appropriate. You can make an online notification through the planning portal by clicking on the link below: 

Please note that it is a criminal offence to undertake such works without consent.

These requirements do not apply to trees that have a trunk diameter of less than 75mm (3”) when measured 1.5 metres above ground level.


Article 4 Directions

The Borough Council may remove certain ‘permitted development rights’ from dwellings in a Conservation Area. This is done under Article 4 of the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 1995.

An Article 4 Direction can be applied across all or part of a Conservation Area. It can address any form of ‘permitted development’ that might harm the character of such an area, such as the replacement of windows or roof surfaces, or the painting of bare brick or stone façades.

Stanton-by-Dale Article 4 Direction

An Article 4 Direction protects many of the dwellings in the Stanton-by-Dale Conservation Area. This means that Planning Permission is required for the alteration or insertion of windows or doors at these properties. A map showing the dwellings covered by the Article 4 Direction can be downloaded by clicking on the link below:
