Conservation Management Plan

In 2013, as part of its action plan, the Society agreed that it would help prepare a Conservation Management Plan in conjunction with South Lakeland District Council. A team of six was set up to undertake the necessary work of visiting some 234 properties which included tombstones, letter boxes, lamp posts and guide stones in the Conservation Area to carry out an audit of the external physical condition of each property. Photographs were taken of the front elevation of each property.

The team completed their work in June 2015 and further action by the Conservation Officer of the District Council is now awaited in the preparation of a Management Plan that will identify how the Council will seek to preserve and enhance the character and appearance of the Conservation Area.
