Selly Park Conservation Area

Selly Park Conservation Area was designated in 2010. It is bounded by Pershore Road, Selly Park Road and Woodside Road to the south and Bournbrook Road to the west. St. Stephen Church is roughly in the centre of the area.
Compared to the densely built housing typical of the late 19th and early 20th centuries surrounding it, Selly Park is an area of spacious plots and generously proportioned architect-designed residential properties, open space and secluded culs de sac. The religious and educational establishments of St. Paul RC Convent, Chapel and associated buildings, St. Edward RC Church, Presbytery and School, and St. Stephen Church and Hall are all situated within the boundary, as is St. Mary Hospice. There are also a number of listed buildings in the area.
At the same time we also restricted the types of work often permitted without planning permission to retain the character of the area. This is known as an Article 4 Direction. It means that planning permission is required from us to, for example, erect a wall, fence, satelite dish or porch etc.
A map of the boundary of the conservation area is below along with details of the Article 4 Direction. The designation report will be added in due course. The newsletters below were produced to explain the reasons for the then proposed designation.
