West Lancashire District Council


Notice is hereby given that the Council of the District of West Lancashire has undertaken a review of its area and considers it appropriate to designate two further conservation areas under section 69(1) of the above Act. Designation took effect from 11th July 2000. The areas have been designated following a detailed assessment of the special architectural and historic character of the areas. Plox Brow Conservation Area, Tarleton Plox Brow forms part of the oldest area in Tarleton and contains a number of listed buildings. The Conservation Area is set around a road network in the centre of the village which includes a combination of shops, offices and residential properties. The Brow Conservation Area, Hesketh Bank The Brow has evolved over several centuries and has significant historical importance as it identifies the original shore-line of the south bank of the Ribble Estuary. As a settlement it contains a mix of residential properties and agricultural uses within a well established natural landscape. Plans showing the Conservation Areas and the justification for their designation can be inspected, during normal office hours, at West Lancashire District Council, Development and Leisure, 52 Derby Street, Ormskirk.
