A conservation area is an area of architectural or historic value, the character or appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance.
Fife currently has 48 conservation areas.
Conservation areas, though not always focused on concentrations of listed buildings, usually feature buildings of high architectural value. The designation is based not only on these buildings but also the overall character of an area, taking into account the layout of buildings and open spaces such as squares, private gardens, parks and designed landscapes. As well as appearance, the present and historic uses of the area are also important.
The Council is responsible for designating conservation areas, but we consult the public over boundary changes, or if a new area is to be designated.
