Medieval Times’ Kynnersley Village Designated As Conservation Area

A village in Shropshire has been designated as a conservation area.

Kynnersley dates back to medieval times, retaining part of the original road layout. It also features a number of cottages built in the 19th Century by the Duke of Sutherland for his tenants.

It is the eighth conservation area within the Telford and Wrekin borough.

Councillor Carolyn Healy said the local authority wanted to preserve “unique” towns and villages.

Telford and Wrekin Council said a conservation area was defined as an “area of special architectural or historic interest, the character and appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance”.

It means Kynnersley will have tighter planning controls, meaning the local authority will have to protect Kynnersley’s special character when deciding on planning applications.
