Design and conservation

This section contains useful information on design and conservation guidelines in the National Park.

Building design

If you are seeking advice, it is necessary at least to have some ideas sketched first. When this has been done, it is valuable then to stand back from the proposals and ask critically – what is there about this scheme that benefits the area, and how does it respond intelligently to its context? This will give a good basis for us to discuss your proposals with you. We publish design guidance and case studies, and advice can also be provided direct to people through the planning process.
