Draft energy efficiency planning guidance for Dartmouth Park Conservation Area

Closed 15 Jul 2012

Opened 2 Jun 2012


We have drafted new planning guidance to provide advice and information to householders who are considering making energy efficiency improvements to their homes in Dartmouth park Conservation Area.

This guidance aims to provide residents with clear information about how these improvements can be made to homes without harming the character and appearance of the conservation area.  

It explains which measures require planning permission, and then gives guidance on which works are likely to be granted permission.  The measures considered range from small DIY interventions to larger building projects. Some of the measure will change the appearance of buildings in the area.

This guidance has been developed in consultation with a working group comprising representatives from the Dartmouth Park Conservation Area Advisory Committee, Transition Highgate and Transition Kentish Town (Transition Dartmouth Park was also formed following the start of the working group) and Residents’ Associations from across the area. 

The guidance has been produced as part of a pilot project and is a precursor to guidance for all homes in Camden conservation areas.

We want your views on whether the draft guidance is helpful and whether it meets the aim of enabling householders to reduce their energy use without harming the character and appearance of the conservation area.
