Brownswood conservation area

Proposed Brownswood conservation area public consultation

We are currently consulting on a proposed Brownswood conservation area in the north of the borough close to Finsbury Park.

This area is a high quality late Victorian suburb with a clear hierarchy of housing types set out from the 1860s onwards.

In order to preserve the features that give these streets their special character such as original windows, doors, brick detailing, distinctive porches and the like, we are also seeking an Article 4 Direction over the conservation area, which will remove certain permitted development rights.

Full details of the proposals, including all supporting documents can be found below. The consultation brochure gives further details of how to have your say on these proposals.

The consultation closes 29 January 2020.
