Victoria and Town Centre Conservation Area

First designated in 1975 and reviewed in October 2011


During the 19th century, many handsome civic buildings were built in the town centre which reflected the wealth and status of the burgh. There are a wide variety of building styles within the conservation area, characterised by use of sandstone, scottish slate roofs and timber sash and case windows. The layout of the historic core of the town at Buchanan street and Stirling street remains largely intact.

Our  pdf icon Victoria and Town Centre Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan [3Mb] provides a detailed appraisal of the buildings and spaces which contribute to the unique character of the conservation area.  The plan is set out to preserve and enhance the conservation area and guide development proposals.  We have also produced more general conservation area guidance within pdf icon SPG 31 [707kb].
