Conservation Area

conservationlgeDilwyn's conservation area was originally designated in 1974 under the old Leominster District Council. It covers the core central village of the parish of Dilwyn.

A conservation area is defined under the Herefordshire Council's Unitary Development Plan (UDP) as an area of special architectural or historic interest, the character and appearance of which should be conserved or enhanced. This plan sets out criteria for designating and reviewing conservation areas, and on how planning applications for development within such areas will be considered.

Residential development can only take place on allocated and windfall sites within a defined settlement boundary within the conservation area.

Dilwyn Conservation Area includes the village of Dilwyn and the rural area that immediately surrounds the village on its periphery. Within the conservation area, heritage assets include fifteen Listed Buildings, i.e., one Grade I building (church) and fourteen Grade II buildings or structures, and one Scheduled Monument (castle mound, south of village green). Ten unlisted buildings are identified as buildings of local interest. All of these buildings and structures, together with the area’s mature trees and hedgerows, walls, gardens, open spaces and views, contribute to the special architectural and historic character of this Conservation Area.
