Conservation areas have rules regarding changing the aesthetics of your home’s facade. Our timber conservation windows fully comply with regulations and are carefully manufactured to complement your building’s natural charm.
Conservation Area Windows
Replacing windows in a conservation area isn’t as easy as changing your windows elsewhere. Properties in conservation areas are subject to more controls to protect the look, feel and qualities of the area they’re in. This means that conservation area window replacements may be subject to planning permission and you may be limited in the style or materials used in the window – you will need to check with your local planning authority what the exact restrictions in your area are.
Although the restrictions aren’t generally as limiting as those for listed properties, conservation area rules can seem like a hindrance. However, the character, charm and appeal of certain areas often originates from the look of the buildings within it, and so the aesthetics are well worth preserving. What’s more, an authentic looking property can also enjoy an increase in value. Think how jarring it would be to see white uPVC windows on a Georgian townhouse or a stone country cottage and you can understand the need to preserve a building’s heritage with regulations and sympathetic improvements.
Traditional Wooden Windows
We offer traditional wooden windows which faithfully replicate the style and features of original windows in a period property. As such, our traditional timber windows are ideal for conservation area window replacements. Our windows have been designed with conservation areas in mind and will meet the requirements set out in the regulations for these preserved areas.
Our conservation windows are available in flush sash, casement or bay window designs to suit all property needs. There are also a variety of bar designs available to further retain the character of the property. While our conservation area windows help maintain a traditional look, they include modern features to make them more functional. Our conservation timber windows are double glazed, have great U-values and multi-point locking for increased security. All of our wood windows are all made from high quality timber, making them durable, low maintenance and long lasting, and come with good guarantees for peace of mind.

Whenever you want to make changes to a property in a conservation area you need to contact your local authority and check beforehand. Some conservation areas are flexible with home improvements but others may have strict planning permission requirements. Largely it will depend on what you are trying to achieve. Conservation areas are set up to protect areas of interest and are designed to retain the character and charm of the buildings in that area.
While modern extensions and features may be limited, replacement windows should be considered necessary to maintain the upkeep of the building. We can support you with your planning permission and design the windows to keep them as authentic as possible. Further information can be found here.
