Studying the historic character of Braunton
Braunton conservation: North Devon Council is calling on local people to help conserve and protect Braunton’s unique character.
At a meeting of the Executive Committee, councillors agreed to adopt a Conservation Area Character Appraisal to look at what makes the historic character and appearance of the village special, with suggestions from council officers and local people.
The council wants the public to help by saying what they think of Braunton’s management plan, which sets out how to protect the area and its special characteristics, offering guidance when on planning applications.
