A part of Selmeston Village, close to the Church, was designated a Conservation Area some years ago. A Conservation Area is an area of special architectural or historic interest, the character and appearance of which is to be preserved and enhanced. The original Conservation Area is described in the attached Selmeston Conservation Area booklet, which has relevant maps and drawings.
In 2014, Wealden announced a review of Conservation Areas and asked for the current views of the village. Our response is attached:
Following the consultation, the Conservation Area was significantly increased and now includes most of the village from the A27 to the level crossing, as well as properties adjoining the A27 that are actually in the Parish of Alciston (including The Barley Mow).
A map of the new conservation area, also showing the previous boundaries, is attached:
