Large parts of the older areas of Lavant's settlement area fall within a legally recognised conservation area. There is a map image on the right of this page which you can click on to see the extent of the area.

A conservation area provides for matters of further consideration when any development is being proposed to the site (buildings or grounds). Please refer to the Historic England website for further information, or contact the local planning departments at Chichester District Council or South Downs National Park Authority for further advice.
