Part of Selmeston village has for many years been a Conservation Area – an area of special architectural or historic interest designated by Wealden so that its character and appearance may be preserved and enhanced. The original Conservation Area is described in the attached Selmeston Conservation Area booklet, which has maps and drawings of the Conservation Area.
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 Alciston (including The Barley Mow).
