Conservation Area Appraisal

The Shotley Bridge conservation Area was originally designated in 1975 and the boundary has been amended three times since.

A Conservation Area Appraisal has been produced by Northumberland and Durham County Councils to assess the features and qualities of the Area that make it special, and consider how it can be effectively preserved and enhanced.  The Village Trust was consulted on the draft version and the final version was adopted in December 2009.

The document explains the planning policy framework, history of development, buildings and materials of architectural interest. Nine character areas are described, issues and potential for improvement are discussed and management proposals outlined. There are some interesting maps and photographs as well as information on all the listed buildings and buildings of local interest.
