Conservation Area Advisory Committees (CAACs)

Conservation Area Advisory Committees (CAACs) are a way for members of the general public with an interest in heritage to help the council in managing and protecting the historic environment. They allow amenity societies, independent experts, and local residents and businesses to get involved with the planning process. The groups are voluntary, and members decide how they are run, and what area they cover.

What do CAACs do?

The main role of CAACs in the planning process is to provide a local focus on design, conservation and heritage matters. They assist the council in the formulation of policies and guidance for their conservation area and act as a continuing source of advice on planning issues. We inform CAACs of planning applications and relevant planning policy consultations, and welcome their assistance and views.
