Continuing our programme of London Icons, we look at Conservation areas in the capital. There are over 1000 in the Greater London area; 50 percent of Camden is conversation area, while Kensington and Chelsea make up 70 percent.
Rosemarie MacQueen (Historic England Commissioner and former head of planning at Westminster), Frank Kelsall (architectural historian and former London Society Chairman), William Filmer-Sankey (architectural historian and archaeologist at Alan Baxter Ltd, previously Director of the Victorian Society) and Paul Velluet (architect, formerly of English Heritage) explore how Conservation Areas have been both a restraint on inconsiderate proposals and an encouragement to thoughtful design.
