Mumbles Conservation Area Review

The Mumbles Conservation Area Review is now underway. We would like to hear from residents, businesses and stakeholders - have your say.

Mumbles Conservation Area was first designated in 1969 due to the fishing village and later Victorian resort character. A draft of the Mumbles Conservation Area Review has now been prepared to provide an up to date assessment of the character and issues affecting the designated Mumbles conservation area, and we would welcome your comments and views.

We are required to review all conservation areas from time to time and the Mumbles Conservation Area includes:

  • A 'Boundary Review' with proposals to significantly expand the existing Conservation Area boundary to include Oystermouth Castle, Newton Road and the residential terraces - PDF Document Mumbles Conservation Area Review boundary map (PDF, 1MB)Opens new window;
  • An up to date 'Character Appraisal' breaking the area down into smaller distinct areas that share common characteristics, and
  • A 'Management Plan' which indicates how the character of the area will be preserved and enhanced by a variety of means to sustain the special architectural and historic character.
