South Gloucestershire Council have a Specialist Advice Team, who provide advice on planning applications related to historic buildings (listed and locally listed), trees, ecology, archaeology, conservation areas and landscape character.
A conservation area is an area of special architectural or historic interest the character or appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance.
Historic Landscapes represent the way past populations appreciated and engaged with the land and their local area.
Listed buildings are recognised as being of special architectural or historic interest. Listed status protects a building against unauthorised demolition alteration or extension. It ensures that its special interest is taken into account when proposals are put forward which affect its character or appearance.
Throughout South Gloucestershire there are buildings and structures which while not statutory listed buildings are of good quality design and appearance or have historical significance or are important features in their own right and which also make a significant contribution to the character and appearance of the locality.
