We designated the Steetley Conservation Area (850kb) as an area of special architectural and historic interest, the character and appearance of which it is desirable to both preserve and enhance, on 21st February 1969. The boundary of the conservation area has been extended once in June 2009.
It is considered that this special architectural and historic interest relates to the 12th century All Saints' Church (Steetley Chapel), and the survival of buildings associated with the early 19th century farmstead of Steetley Farm. The conservation area was extended to include additional surrounding areas of land that are considered to be of archaeological interest due to their possible association with the deserted medieval village of Steetley.
We have prepared a Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan (2.46MB) for the area.
The document defines the special character and appearance of the area by assessing the built form and landscape value. It also provides guidance on the implementation of certain saved policies in the Bolsover District Local Plan and formulates management proposals for the preservation and enhancement of the Steetley Conservation Area.
