Opinions sought on future of heritage conservation areas

We need your help...

Published: Wednesday, 19th February 2020


As you probably heard, last year we officially named the area around the Railway Village a Heritage Action Zone (HAZ).

The five-year project, launched in partnership with the heritage experts at Historic England is intended to revitalise the area.

The first major HAZ project is now underway – and we want members of the public to get involved.

In short, we’re looking in detail at Swindon’s two Conservation Areas: the Railway Village and Railway Works.

We’re asking the following questions:

  • Should the two Conservation Areas be combined into one?
  • Should the boundaries be changed?
  • How should the Conservation Areas be managed in future?

Heritage consultants Purcell are leading a workshop on these issues at 3pm on Thursday, 27 February in The Platform on Faringdon Road.

Everybody is welcome to come along and get involved!

Feel free to turn up on the day, though confirming attendance by emailing kphimister@swindon.gov.uk will help us to plan the session.
