Conservation Area

Stoke Gabriel's Conservation Area is located in the centre of the village, bordering Mill Pool.

Conservation Areas are places whose surviving historic, architectural and locally distinctive features make them special. Conservation Area designation highlights the need to preserve and reinforce these qualities.

The District Council has a statutory duty to approve proposals for development only if they "preserve and enhance the character or appearance" of the Conservation Area.

The Conservation Area Appraisal and the Conservation Area Management Plan are available on the SHDC website.
