Sports, leisure & the Arts St Ann's Square Conservation Area

Control of development

St. Ann's Square is in the commercial heart of the City, where almost every building accommodates shops on the ground floor. Encouragement of this variety will help maintain the character of the area. Where buildings need to be replaced, historic copies are not encouraged; instead high quality modern design, taking cues from the remaining historic buildings is promoted. Building proposals should be designed to enhance the existing quality of the built environment.
