Bolsover district is richly endowed with buildings and landscapes which illustrate how our ancestors – both recent and more distant – once lived in the area. The mix of old and new is a vital ingredient of character. The historic environment enriches the places in which we live and also makes an important contribution to tourism by attracting visitors to the district, helping regeneration.
The work of the Conservation Section for the period 2008-2013 is set out in our Historic Environment Scheme. Current key activities are:
- providing specialist advice on both formal applications and informal enquiries relating to listed building consent, conservation area consent and planning applications which raise conservation issues;
- tackling Heritage at Risk;
- taking a central role in the preservation of the district's listed buildings;
- overseeing the management of the district's 27 conservation areas and preparing a series of Conservation Area Appraisals and Management Plans to provide additional guidance for their preservation and enhancement.
You can find out more about the work of the Heritage Conservation Team and when you may be able to get involved by looking at the Historic Environment Scheme.
