Conservation Areas

Reading has 15 conservation areas. Reading CAAC has been working with Reading Borough Council (RBC), Reading people and community and heritage organisations to update the current appraisals.

All conservation area appraisals can be found on the RBC website and there is also a page on this site with a brief description and photographs of each conservation area.

So far two appraisals have been updated and completed the process to adoption by RBC:

We are currently concentrating on two town centre appraisals:

  • Market Place/London Street
  • St Mary’s Butts/Castle Street

Work has started on other appraisals but is not as far advanced.
