Shearsby Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan 2021
2.1 Shearsby was awarded Conservation Area designation in 1975. A boundary amendment was made in 1994 and the conservation area was re-appraised in 2005. This appraisal has been undertaken from late summer 2020 to early spring 2021. As a result, the work was undertaken during the restrictions imposed to fight the Covid 19 pandemic, which included meetings of a maximum of 6 in an outdoor setting only and limited access to archival or library sources.
2.2 Conservation area status must be justified on the grounds of the special architectural or historic interest of the area. The purpose of this appraisal is to define and record the factors that give Shearsby conservation area its special interest and justify its designation. This will help improve understanding of the historic importance of the area, how this has shaped its unique character and how it can guide its future development.
2.3 There are no proposals to make any changes to the current boundary of the Shearsby conservation area.
