Draft South Mimms Conservation Area Appraisal

In order to help protect the character and appearance of the South Mimms Conservation Area, a Conservation Area Appraisal has been prepared by Hertsmere Borough Council. 

The South Mimms Conservation Area was designated by the Council in 1998 for its special architectural and historical interest, and as an important local village with medieval origins. 

The draft Conservation Area Appraisal provides a brief history of the area and is intended to define what is important about it. It also sets out a number of recommendations to help preserve and enhance the character and appearance of the area, including some proposed revisions to the Conservation Area boundary.  

Any comments or queries regarding the Conservation Area Appraisal and associated recommendations are welcomed by email to or and should be made in writing to the below address by 12pm on Friday 28th July 2023.

All comments received by 12pm on Friday 28th July will be taken into consideration when finalising the document.

We hope that the Conservation Area Appraisal will prove interesting as well as informative. The document and a set of Frequently Asked Questions can be viewed on the Council website at–Building-Control/Building–Tree-Conservation/Conservation-areas/South-Mimms-Conservation-Area.aspx
