As part of an ongoing programme to review our conservation areas, in 2019 we commissioned an external consultant to carry out an appraisal of Keswick Conservation Area. They produced a Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan.
The appraisal identifies the special architectural and historic interest of the town and reviews the boundary of the conservation area. The boundary review recommends some extensions and deletions to the current conservation area.
The management plan, based on evidence in the appraisal, recommends actions which will help both the Lake District National Park Authority and key partners, manage future developments and enhancements and ensure they are good quality and sensitively designed.
The consultation period runs for six weeks from Monday 10th of February to Friday 27th of March. We'd like you to look at the proposed changes and give us your feedback.

Please come along and ask any questions you may have about the proposed changes to the conservation area, or share any information, historic images or facts about the historic nature of the town and its buildings.
