Tell the Council
Do you care about the quality of your surroundings? Are you concerned about a local conservation area? Do you want to do something about it?
Email or write to your local Ward Councillor and invite the Council to discuss the condition of your conservation area at one of its future meetings. Ask your friends and neighbours to do the same. Your local council may have a Heritage Champion who could help you.
