Because of the historic quality of the buildings and streets, a large bit of the Haringey part of Bowes Park was designated a Conservation Area in November 1994. This means that because the area is of special architectural and historic interest, there are special regulations to help preserve and enhance it.
The special regulations that apply to the conservation area include restrictions on putting up satellite dishes on the buildings’ façades, keeping traditional timber details, and restrictions about altering windows, so please read the information carefully if you live in the area. Trees in the conservation area are also covered by the regulations.
If you see owners/ builders doing things you feel are not correct, please contact the council and tell them.
Restricted conversion areas
In addition to the Conservation Area, there are also areas where conversions will be restricted to prevent the loss of family housing and additional issues with on-street parking. In Bowes Park, this includes Myddleton Road and “streets where conversions and/or HMO already equal 20% of the properties”.
For further detail, please see pages 27-28 in the Haringey Unitary Development Plan Saved Policies.
