The area is a high quality late Victorian suburb constructed from the 1860s onwards. The
character and form of the area from its original design and layout is largely unchanged.
Buildings in the area are adorned with detailed historic decorative architectural features. The area is considered to be of special architectural and historic interest and therefore suitable for designation.
The proposals include a Brownswood Conservation Area Appraisal & Management Plan and a Boundary Map.
