We designated the PDF icon Newton Conservation Area (871kb) as an area of special architectural and historic interest the character and appearance of which it is desirable to both preserve and enhance on the 9th January 2002. A minor amendment to the boundary of the Newton Conservation Area was made in March 2010 as part of the review of the conservation area that we carried out.

It is considered that the special architectural and historic interest of the Newton Conservation Area is due to the settlement representing a local example of a turn of the 20th century agricultural settlement where the historical core of the village has remained largely untouched by later development. The rural character is enhanced by a number of impressive buildings and their relationship with their surroundings.

We have prepared a Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan (1.25MB) for the area.

The document defines the special character and appearance of the area by assessing the built form, landscape and townscape value and 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 Newton Conservation Area.

The Hardwick Conservation Area (106kb) was originally designated in 1974. The conservation area was extended and renamed the Hardwick and Rowthorne Conservation Area in 1987.

At present, no Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan has been prepared for the Hardwick & Rowthorne Conservation Area.

Article 4 Direction
An Article 4 Direction for Rowthorne, Ault Hucknall and Stainsby Mill has been in place since June 1988. Following revisions to the national planning regulations, we made a new Article 4 Direction on the 19th August 2009 to continue and extend the controls over development in these parts of the conservation area.

The new Direction was approved by the Secretary of State on 11th February 2010 and came into force on 1st April 2010.

We have prepared an Article 4 Direction leaflet (73kb) and an Article 4 Direction and affected properties plans (506kb) to explain what this means for residents and this can be viewed using the link below.

We designated the Hardstoft Conservation Area (106kb) as an area of special architectural and historic interest, the character and appearance of which it is desirable to both preserve and enhance, on 14th February 1990. The conservation area was previously named the Hardstoft Green Conservation Area which was designated on 5th July 1978 and included only the properties and land around The Green.

It is considered that this special architectural and historic interest is derived from the hamlet’s historical association with the Hardwick Estate, and the survival of farm buildings and cottages in the local vernacular style of architecture, together with the surrounding agricultural land.

We have prepared a Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan (1.21MB) 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 Hardstoft Conservation Area.

The implementation of the management of the conservation area is set out in our Historic Environment Scheme.

Hardstoft Conservation Area Article 4 Direction
An Article 4 Direction for the Hardstoft Conservation Area was confirmed by the Planning Committee on 13th October 2010 and came into force on 21st October 2010. The Direction affects those properties identified as unlisted buildings of merit in the Hardstoft Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan.

We have produced the Article 4 Direction guidance leaflet (69kb) to explain what this means for residents. For full details please see the Official Direction and affected properties plans (1.66MB).

We designated the Creswell Conservation Area (717kb) as an area of special architectural and historic interest that the character and appearance of which it is desirable to both preserve and enhance on the 12th December 2007 following a review of the previous designations.

It is considered that this special architectural and historic interest is due to the presence of the internationally important archaeology of Creswell Crags and the surrounding open countryside, the small medieval hamlet that developed around the River Wollen and the later phases of development and prestige associated with the patronage of the Duke of Portland and his colliery company, the Bolsover Colliery Company.

Alongside the review of the previous designations, we have prepared a Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan (3.84MB) for the area.

The document defines the special character and appearance of the area by assessing the built form, landscape and townscape value and 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 Creswell Conservation Area.

The implementation of the management of the conservation area is principally being delivered through the Creswell Townscape Heritage Initiative and a number of projects have been completed and are currently underway.

Creswell Conservation Area (Crags, Old Village and Village Centre parts) Article 4 Direction
An Article 4 Direction for the Creswell Conservation Area covering selected properties in the Crags, old village and village centre parts of Creswell was confirmed by the Planning Committee on 13th October 2010 and came into force on 22nd October 2010.

We have produced the Article 4 Direction guidance leaflet (66kb) to explain what this means for residents. For full details please see the Official Direction (730kb) and affected properties plans.

Creswell Model Village Article 4 Direction
An Article 4 Direction for the Creswell Model Village part of the Creswell Conservation Area has been in place since April 2002. Following revisions to the national planning regulations, we made a new Article 4 Direction on the 19th August 2009 to continue and extend the controls over development in this part of the conservation area.

The new Direction was approved by the Secretary of State on 11th February 2010 and came into force on the 2nd April 2010.

We have produced the Article 4 Direction (97kb) leaflet and the Official Article 4 Direction and Plan of affected properties to help residents of the Model Village understand what this means.

We have also produced guidance notes (598kb) for residents of Creswell Model Village to help explain how we will consider applications for planning permission for the works brought under control by the Article 4 Direction.

However, these relate to the 2002 Direction and we are currently updating the Guidance Notes to reflect the new Article 4 Direction.
