Ewhurst Green Conservation Area Appraisal
Following a public consultation, the Ewhurst Green Conservation Area Appraisal (CAA) was adopted at Full Council on 13 December 2016. The document included a few amendments to the boundary.
Material consideration for planning applications
The document is a material planning consideration for all applications within the conservation area (CA). A CAA identifies and explains the character of the conservation area. It also contains a Management Plan section that sets out specific actions/projects aimed at preserving and enhancing the conservation area as well as managing change in the future. It will also be used to prioritise environmental improvement projects within the CA.

Ewhurst Green developed as a separate entity to Ewhurst village and as such has its own character. It is defined by the common land which forms a strong boundary treatment with the open scatter of buildings which contrasts with the much closer development in the village. Despite its close proximity to the village, which has been subject to development over the years resulting in its expansion to the south and east, the CA has retained its rural character and setting.
