Conservation Area

Much of the village lies within a designated Conservation Area which introduces a statutory duty to preserve or enhance its character or appearance.  An adopted Conservation Area Appraisal incorporating a Management Strategy is in place which provides a helpful guide to carrying out works within the area.  The appraisal which includes a history of the village together with maps, photographs and management policies can be found on the ‘Dorset Council’ website under ‘Conservation Areas’

The Appraisal and Strategy aim to:

  1. Provide a brief history of the area;
  2. Identify those elements of the Milton Abbas Conservation Area that contribute to its character; 
  3. Identify those elements which detract from the character and appearance; and
  4. Propose measures to maintain or improve the positive character, local distinctiveness and sense of place.
