Conservation Area Advisory Committee (DPCAAC)

The Conservation Area Advisory Committee is a group made up of local residents and representatives of street, tenant and community associations. The Council consults the CAAC on planning applications that may affect the character or appearance of a conservation area, on the formulation of conservation and design policies and on its structure plans as these affect the area.
Dartmouth Park was designated a conservation area under the provisions of the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 on the 1st February 1992.
The Conservation Area, in Camden, London, runs from Swains Lane and St Anne's Church in the north to the Gospel Oak/Barking railway in the south, with a southwards extension embracing the historic College Lane/Highgate Road strip; and from Dartmouth Park Hill in the east to Hampstead Heath in the west (including Lissenden Gardens and Haddo House) extending west to include Gordon House Road, Wesleyan Place and Mortimer Terrace. To the east the Conservation area extends to the boarder between Camden and Islington and includes Highgate Newtown.  Most of the Conservation Area is within the NW5 and N19 postcodes.
The Committee aims to preserve and enhance the character of the area.
The Council, assisted by the Advisory Committee and after extensive consultation, have produced a detailed appraisal and management strategy for the area.  This was adopted by the Council on 22 January 2009.  It explains why Dartmouth Park is special, provides a detailed history of the area's built heritage and gives a detailed guidance on its preservation and enhancement.
