Blaby Conservation Area Appraisal


We undertook a conservation area appraisal and identified a series of heritage sensitive design principles in support of a neighbourhood plan for Blaby. Our approach was to enhance the area but hold onto the history of the location. We worked alongside Blaby Parish Council to ensure we met their needs on all aspects of the appraisal.


A detailed conservation area appraisal was submitted to form a part of Blaby’s neighbourhood plan for the future. We wanted to ensure the design principles we created enhanced the settlement in an appropriate and heritage sensitive manner. We have subsequently been commissioned to undertake a town centre masterplan for Blaby, which will utilise these principles. The impact of this will be to create a more vibrant and sustainable town centre that will enhance the lives of those living and working there.
