Glasgow currently has 25 Conservation Areas varying in character from the city centre and Victorian residential suburbs to a rural village and a former country estate.
To determine whether an area merits Conservation Area status a conservation area appraisal must be prepared. The purpose of a conservation area appraisal is to define what is important about its character and appearance and to identify its important characteristics. It is also a vital tool to enable the active management of the conservation area.
It identifies the area's special features and changing needs through a process which includes researching its historical development, carrying out a detailed townscape analysis and preparing a character assessment.
