Bollington and Kerridge Conservation Areas
There are seventy seven Conservation Areas within Cheshire East and these include;
- Bollington and Kerridge (see Bollington and Kerridge Conservation Area Appraisal Document)
- Bollington Cross and Lowerhouse (see Bollington Cross and Lowerhouse Conservation Area Appraisal and Bollington Cross and Lowerhouse Management Plan)
- plus the Macclesfield Canal Conservation Area (see Macclesfield Canal Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan)
The designation of a conservation area does not prevent development taking place, but Cheshire East Council has to pay particular attention when deciding planning applications; the council has to be mindful of the need to preserve and enhance the character and appearance of the area. Some developments that are normally allowed may need specific planning approval including the demolition of a building or structure. Written consent from the Council is also required for works to any trees.
Properties of particular interest may be subject to what is known as Article 4(2) Direction which imposes further controls over alteration of the properties. If a building has been included under such a direction, the owner will find it necessary to apply for planning permission for most external alterations.
