Kegworth Conservation Area

Kegworth Conservation Area

Tue, 14 Nov 2017 10:59 by Vicky Roe

A conservation area is defined as an area of "special architectural and historic interest, the character or appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance". NWLDC have identified a potential conservation area at Kegworth. More »

Kegworth's historic core is extensive and includes land on High Street, London Road, Market Place and Nottingham Road. NWLDC believe that the historic core meets the definition of a conservation area and should be considered for designation.

Kegworth's historic core is substantially intact. It contains a concentration of buildings that predate the reign of Queen Victoria, including eighteen listed buildings. The historic core also contains the scheduled remains of medieval settlement.

NWLDC would welcome your comments on the proposed conservation area, before noon on Friday 22 December. Please follow the links here to view a map of the proposed conservation area, to read a rapid appraisal of the historic core and to find out more about the effects of designation.

Please comment using the online consultation form or contact:

Why now?
The Kegworth bypass is expected to open in the Autumn of 2018 and this will reduce the volume of traffic passing through the village. In turn, this will offer opportunities to improve the environment of the village centre. Designating a conservation area would help to ensure that those improvements would reflect the area's architectural and historic interest. » Less
