The revised Colinton Conservation Area Character Appraisal is now online. Conservation Area Character Appraisals are intended to help manage change. They provide an agreed basis of understanding of what makes an area special.
This understanding informs and provides the context in which decisions can be made on proposals which may affect that character.
An enhanced level of understanding, combined with appropriate management tools, ensures that change and development sustains and respects the qualities and special characteristics of the area.
The richness of Colinton’s built heritage is considerable. It is this complexity and diversity which make it attractive yet make these qualities hard to define.
These are qualities and conflicts that must be resolved if the character of Colinton is to be sensitively interpreted and enhanced.
