Appraisals and Surveys

Please read our information on how we are supporting residents and businesses, as well as information on affected services.


Cornwall Council have produced or commissioned several different surveys and appraisals. These are of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly's historic towns and urban areas.

These assessments present a baseline of information. This underpins the development of policy and guidance. They also support the management of conservation areas and heritage led regeneration projects.

Please see the below interactive map.  It shows the areas covered by these surveys and appraisals. It also includes links to the relevant documents if they are available when the area is selected.
