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.

We designated the Clowne Conservation Area (853kb) as an area of special architectural and historic interest, the character and appearance of which it is desirable to both preserve and enhance, on 4th May 2005.

It is considered that this special architectural and historic interest is due to the survival of the town's historic core which reflects its agricultural origins and later phases of development that followed the sinking of the nearby Southgate Colliery and the arrival of the railway, together with the archaeological and geological interest of the pleasant open area along Millwood Brook that runs to the north of the Church of St John the Baptist.

We have prepared a Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan (3.91MB) for the Clowne Conservation Area and we adopted this on 1st March 2006.

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 Clowne Conservation Area.

This document forms one of the first parts of the Local Development Framework for the area that will deliver the spatial planning strategy, upon which decisions on development proposals will be made.

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

We designated the Carnfield Hall Conservation Area (77kb) 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 8th November 1989.

It is considered that this special architectural and historic interest is due to the Grade II* listed Carnfield Hall and its former coach house which is Grade II listed. In addition, Carnfield Wood Farm plus a large area of surrounding estate landscape and woodland, which has been associated with Carnfield Hall since at least the 16th century, is of historic interest and forms the setting for Carnfield Hall.

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 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 Carnfield Hall Conservation Area.

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

The Bolsover Conservation Area (1.12MB) was designated on 17th July 1971 and the boundary has been extended four times in 1978, 1982, 1988 and finally in March 2009. The most recent boundary amendment was made to include additional land around New Bolsover which is historically associated with Bolsover Castle and the New Bolsover Model Village, and to delete a small area from the Conservation Area at the entrance to Houldsworth Crescent.

We have prepared a Conservation Area Appraisal (1.6MB) 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 identifies unlisted buildings of merit within the conservation area.

Bolsover Conservation Area (Unlisted Buildings of Merit) Article 4 Direction

An Article 4 Direction for the Bolsover Conservation Area was confirmed by the Planning Committee on 13th October 2010 and came into force on 21st October 2010.

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 (2.7MB) and affected properties plans.

Bolsover Conservation Area (Castle Fields) Article 4 Direction

The Bolsover Conservation Area (Castle Fields) Article 4 Direction (240kb) has been in force since the 9th April 1998 and covers the castle fields to the west of Bolsover Castle down to Villas Road and a piece of land at the junction with Station Road.

It restricts certain types of development including the erection or alteration of means of enclosure and formation of access onto highway, development involving agricultural buildings, engineering operations, statutory undertakers and National Rivers Authority.
