Read the draft Lochgilphead Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan here

Conservation areas are designated under the Planning Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas (Scotland) Act 1997.

Conservation areas are areas which have special architectural or historic interest that are considered worthy of protection. It is the character of an area, either architectural or historical, created by buildings and open spaces and their relationship with one another which the designation of a conservation area seeks to preserve.

A conservation area was first designated in Lochgilphead in 1973 in recognition of its special architectural and historic character.

A draft appraisal and management plan for Lochgilphead Conservation Area has been produced to discuss the special interest and architectural importance of the conservation area. Once finalised, the document will be used as a tool to inform future development decisions to affect the character of the conservation area. It is therefore subject to public consultation for a 6-week period between:

  • 1st May and 12th June.

The finalised document will be used as supplementary planning guidance and will be used in conjunction with local and national policies relating to development within Lochgilphead Conservation Area.

Hard copies are available to view at:

  • 1A Manse Brae, Lochgilphead, PA31 8RD, and;
  • Lochgilphead Library.
