Kingswood was first designated as a conservation area in November 1975. No boundary changes have been made since its original designation. A Conservation Area Statement (CAS) was adopted for Kingswood in December 2014.
The local community undertook a review of the conservation area in 2014, as part of their work towards producing a Neighbourhood Development Plan. In liaison with Stroud District Council’s planning strategy and conservation teams, the community produced a Conservation Area Statement and a Design Statement, both of which were adopted as Supplementary Planning Advice (SPA) on 11th December 2014 and will be used to guide the interpretation and application of Development Plan policies, including Local Plan Policy ES10. The Conservation Area Statement contains information about the character and special significance of the conservation area, which backs up a set of guidelines in the Design Statement for conserving and enhancing the conservation area (KCA1-11).
