Conservation areas

Introduction

Ealing's 29 conservation areas are a rich assortment of nineteenth and early twentieth century residential development, treasured open spaces, industrial and transport heritage and remnants of ancient villages.   

The council seeks to preserve and enhance these areas and resist inappropriate development. This is achieved through the exercise of planning controls under the provisions of the Town and Country Planning General Permitted Development Order 1995, the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 and the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990.
