The Conservation Areas listed below are located within the Legacy Corporation Area and were either designated by the relevant Borough Council or extended by the Legacy Corporation. Their boundaries, and supporting Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Guideline, can be viewed by clicking on the relevant Conservation Area.
On 30 April 2014, the Board of the Legacy Corporation agreed to approve designation of an extension to the Fish Island Conservation Area. Please note that the Legacy Corporation designated a reduced Conservation Area boundary extension to that recommended in the Conservation Area Appraisal which was published as part of the consultation exercise. This followed consultation that took place between December 2013 to February 2014.

Consultation on the Three Mills Conservation Area reviewed conservation area appraisal and management guidelines
A conservation area is a place with a special historic interest, buildings, and streets which the local planning authority protects (or designates) and it is important that the character and look of these areas is preserved. In line with the 1990 Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act, the Legacy Corporation, as local planning authority, is responsible for the designation, management, and review of conservation areas, including The Three Mills Conservation Area, which falls to the south of the Legacy Corporation’s planning area. For more information about conservation areas and the implications of their designation, visit the Historic England website: www.historicengland.org.uk
The Three Mills Conservation Area was designated in two parts, as it falls across borough boundaries, the majority of the conservation area falls within the London Borough of Newham, and was designated in 2006, with the rest in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets in 2007. A significant amount of time has elapsed since the two parts of the Three Mills Conservation Area were designated, and the Legacy Corporation Board directed that the area be reviewed to ensure that the management guidelines are still fit for purpose and reflect the current context.
The reviewed conservation area appraisal does not include any significant changes, the document continues to identify what features make a positive or negative contribution to the special character of the conservation area and has updated the guidelines to reflect the current context. The review of the conservation area also reviewed the boundary to reflect the fact that it now falls under the management of one local planning authority rather than two, and therefore the map reflects the whole conservation area rather than two maps split between two authorities.
Comments are invited on the:

Consultation on the Three Mills Conservation Area

Proposals for the preservation and enhancement of the Hackney Wick and the Fish Island and White Post Lane Conservation Areas:
On 30 April 2014 the Board of the London Legacy Development Corporation (the Legacy Corporation) agreed to approve designation of extensions to the Hackney Wick Conservation Area and the Fish Island Conservation Area (renamed Fish Island and White Post Lane Conservation Area).
Under Section 71, of the ‘Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990’, the Legacy Corporation, as a Local Planning Authority, had a duty (a) to formulate and publish its proposals for the preservation and enhancement of the conservation areas and (b) to submit them for consideration to a public meeting in the area to which they relate. The Legacy Corporation also had a duty to have regard to any views concerning the proposals expressed by persons attending the meeting.
The Legacy Corporation’s proposals for the preservation and enhancement of the Hackney Wick Conservation Area and the Fish Island and White Post Lane Conservation Area are contained in two sets of Management Guidelines. These were considered at a public meeting at The White Building, White Post Lane on 10th December 2014. At this meeting members of the public were invited to express their views on the proposed Management Guidelines.
The Legacy Corporation has now finalised the guidelines taking into account the views expressed at this meeting. The finalised Hackney Wick Management Guidelines and the finalised Fish Island and White Post Lane Management Guidelines are now available to download below together with a summary of the comments received and the changes made.

A conservation area is a place with a special historic interest, buildings and streets which the council protects (or designates). It is important that we keep the character and look of these areas.
Within conservation areas, certain additional planning controls apply. You will need to apply for planning permission for demolition and for some alterations or extensions that would not normally need permission outside a conservation area. You must give us six weeks notice, in writing, before any work is carried out to prune or fell a tree in a conservation area.

Designation of an area as a conservation area does not stop development being promoted in the area. However, it introduces extra protections against inappropriate development. In particular where an application for planning permission is made for land within a designated conservation area, the local planning authority must pay special attention to the desirability of preserving or enhancing the character or appearance of that area when it determines that application.
