Restalrig Proposed Conservation Area Designation

Closed 10 Nov 2017

Opened 6 Oct 2017


The Council is responsible for the conservation and management of built heritage in the City including the designation of conservation areas as areas of special architectural or historic interest. 

In recognition of Restalrig’s historic and architectural interest, we are proposing its  designation as a conservation area.  The designation would support the conservation and enhancement of the village’s character and apperarance.

Why We Are Consulting

We are seeking the views of all those who have an interest in Restalrig.  The consultation will help us understand the level of support for the designation of Restalrig as a conservation area.

It is advised that you first read the full Character Appraisal before completing the survey.
