This dataset comprises the boundaries of all Conservation Areas in Scotland.
A conservation area is an area of architectural or historic value, the character or appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance. Conservation areas usually feature buildings of high architectural value. The designation is based not only on these buildings but also the overall character of an area, taking into account the layout of buildings and open spaces such as squares, private gardens, parks and designed landscapes. As well as appearance, the present and historic uses of the area are also important.
We also provide web services and an Atom Feed.
