In accordance with Section 61 of the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) (Scotland) Act 1997, North Lanarkshire Council is seeking public views on which parts of the area are considered worthy of designation as Conservation Areas – i.e areas “of special architectural or historic interest the character or appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance.” The Council is also seeking public views on whether the existing Conservation Area boundaries are in the right place, whether they need to be extended or reduced, and whether the controls on development through Article 4 Directions are working or can be improved.

A short leaflet and questionnaire is available at the locations listed above, or it can be downloaded from or obtained on request from or by telephoning 01236 618127. Comments are sought by Monday 1st March 2010 .


In accordance with Sections 61 and 62 of the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) (Scotland) Act 1997, and following public consultation North Lanarkshire Council hereby gives notice of a variation to the boundary of Kilsyth Conservation Area.

The changes to the conservation area comprise the addition of the following areas:

(a)  Duntreath Cottage in East Burnside Street and adjacent highway land;

(b)  The footpaths on the south side of West and East Burnside Street, alongside the Garrell Burn, also the Miners Memorial Garden;

(c)  The two cast iron bridges over the Garrell Burn on the A803 and the adjoining areas of public open space to either side of the Garrell Burn at the north end of Burnbank Terrace.

North Lanarkshire Council hereby cancels the previous Kilsyth Conservation Area as designated in 1987 and simultaneously designates the new Kilsyth Conservation Area, which contains properties in the following streets: Backbrae Street (east of Airdrie Road); Burnbank Terrace; Burngreen (west of Health Centre & Bowling Club); Dawson’s Wynd; Duntreath Terrace; East Burnside Street (Duntreath Cottage only); High Craigends (west of Curling Stones P.H.); King Street; King Street Lane; Main Street (south of Burnside Street); Market Close; Market Court; Market Square; Market Street; Station Road (Nos.2-6 & Glenlea); U.P. Lane (north of U.P. Road).

The following areas of open space are also included: Burngreen Park; adjacent to Burnbank Terrace; between High Craigends and U.P. Road; Miners Memorial Garden; stretches of the Garrell and Ebroch Burns; also Public Car Parks at Airdrie Road, Backbrae Street and King Street.

The main effects of conservation area designation are:

1.  Conservation Area Consent is needed from North Lanarkshire Council for demolition, and planning permission for partial demolition, within the conservation area.

2.  Stricter controls on advertisements and development apply and normal permitted development rights may not apply. An Article 4 Direction (reviewed along with the boundary of Kilsyth Conservation Area in 2009) is in place which sets out permitted development restrictions.

3.  Tree felling or pruning requires consent.

A map showing the boundary of the new Kilsyth Conservation Area referred to in this notice, and also a Supplementary Guidance leaflet “06 Kilsyth Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan” is available online at . Further advice is also available from Environmental Services, 3rd Floor Fleming House, 2 Tryst Road, Cumbernauld, G67 1JW.
