North Norfolk District Council have re-appointed Purcell to lead the next phase of conservation area reviews across Norfolk. The ongoing project will ensure that these precious sites continue to remain fit for purpose in helping to preserve and enhance the landscape’s character and appearance.

We are delighted at the prospect of working again with North Norfolk District Council to assess the significance and characteristics of these conservation areas. We know conservation areas are very special to all who live in and visit them. We look forward to again contributing to the sustainable future of these conservation areas.

Senior Heritage Consultant, Sally Humphries

Our team have previously undertaken successful conservation area reviews for the villages of Blakeney, Cley-next-the-Sea, Morston and Wiveton which have been well received by the Council.

The next phase of reviews includes Glandford, Letheringsett, Hempstead, Baconsthorpe and Holt (Group A) followed by Brinton with Thornage, Sharrington, Hunworth and Edgefield with a new proposed conservation area for Stody (Group B). Afterwards, the team will review the wider Glaven Valley Conservation Area (the largest conservation area in the district).

The project ensures that buildings and sites of heritage significance are appropriately managed to ensure their longevity, whilst helping shape future developments in order to recognise the importance of Norfolk’s heritage.

We are pleased to continue working with Purcell in reviewing our conservation areas. The work already undertaken for the Glaven Ports was carried out to a high standard and this made the decision to continue working with Purcell the logical choice as we look to complete our review of conservation areas within and around the Glaven Valley.
