    Conservation Area Appraisals

    The Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) (Scotland) Act 1997 requires the National Park Authority to formulate and publish a set of proposals for the preservation and enhancement of each conservation area, by way of a thorough appraisal of its character and appearance.
    These appraisals provide a framework for assessing development proposals within the conservation areas in question and are supplementary to the Local Plan. Appraisals have been adopted as Supplementary Planning Guidance for Callander, Killin and St Fillans Conservation Areas and draft appraisals have been prepared for Drymen, Gartmore and Luss Conservation Areas.
    We wish to encourage people who live in conservation areas to enhance their built heritage. In order to help we have a Conservation Area Regeneration Grant Scheme in Callander which runs until March 2014.   A similar grant scheme ran in Killin until March 2012 . We hope to offer this to other areas in the future.

    Planning Restrictions in Conservation Areas

    In February 2012 changes were made to planning legislation which affected householder rights to carry out works to their properties.  In particular, householders within conservation areas now require planning permission for any alterations or works affecting the exterior of their property.   

    Planning applications can be submitted online at and should be made for all extensions, outbuildings, hard surfaces, gates, fences and walls as well as for any improvements, additions or other alterations to the external appearance of a house.  The latter includes replacement of windows, doors, gutters, drainpipes and re-tiling of roofs.  

    The Lomond & The Trossachs National Park, as the planning authority, encourages anyone considering works in conservation areas to email us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or write to the Planning Information Officer, Carrochan, Carrochan Road, Balloch, G83 8EG.   Written confirmation as to whether planning permission is needed is free and avoids the risk of wasted costs and possible enforcement action.

    Please also note that ‘Conservation area consent’ is required for any demolition works in conservation areas including removal of walls, railings, gates, etc which form part of the historical built environment.   For listed buildings please here.

    Built Heritage Repair Grant

    In August 2013 the National Park launched its Built Heritage Repair Grant which focused on the repair and restoration of traditional, pre-1914 buildings which are visible from main routes through the National Park, including those through conservation areas.
