West Dunbartonshire's Conservation Areas

West Dunbartonshire has a number of designated conservation areas.

Conservation areas are areas of special architectural or historical interest, the character or appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance.  Selection and designation is carried out by the planning authority, although Scottish Ministers have powers to designate conservation areas.

If you live in a conservation area, and you are planning to change or demolish your building contact Development Management to get advice and find out how to apply for permission if needed.
