Conservation Areas are areas designated by local authorities for building and landscape conservation.
If your woodland is classed as a Conservation Area or Site of Special Scientific Interest, it may be protected by different laws to other woodlands. Glorious Woodlands will speak to your local district or borough council to discuss any forestry work or planning permission requirements for your land.
If you wish to cut down, top, lop or uproot a tree in a Conservation Area, Glorious Woodlands will ensure six weeks notice are given to the relevant local authority.
Why do we have Conservation Areas?
Conservation Areas exist to protect sites which have historical interest to keep them unique and protected.
In England, 2.2% of land is classed as a Conservation Area.
