Hoxton Street conservation area
Hoxton Street conservation area was designated in 1983 and includes the shopping centre frontage and other remaining 19th century buildings. Some fine Victorian shop-fronts remain, together with some listed buildings.
The overall character of the area is derived as much from the scale of the buildings and the use of traditional materials, as from the merit of individual buildings. The conservation area declaration has given added impetus to an extensive programme of environmental improvements and building facelifts.
