All aspects of conservation are embraced by the Eastcote Conservation Panel.
Eastcote’s first Eco-Warrior was the late Sheila Liberty, who was a founder member of the Eastcote Village Conservation Area Advisory Panel [EVCAAP]. Sheila built the foundations of Conservation in Eastcote, on which we build today.
Advisory Panels came into being in the 1970s as Conservation Areas were formed by the Government, supporting English Heritage who were attempting to stop the wholesale destruction of old buildings and areas of architectural value.
This destruction was evident in Eastcote, where two of the big houses, Eastcote House and Haydon Hall, were both demolished in the 1960s.
In 2008 the aims of the Panel increased to include all open spaces. There are many volunteer groups in and around Eastcote who work endlessly to conserve both our built environment and beautiful green spaces.
There are three conservation areas in Eastcote:
Eastcote Village Conservation Area
Morford Way Conservation Area
Eastcote Park Estate Conservation Area
There are also 30 Grade II listed Buildings, as well as Locally Listed Buildings and Structures.
