We designated the Pleasley Park and Vale Conservation Area (502kb) as an area of special architectural and historic interest that the character and appearance of which it is desirable to both preserve and enhance on 11th February 1987. An adjoining area was designated as a conservation area by Mansfield District Council in 1992.

It is considered that this special architectural and historic interest is due to the rich geological and archaeological interest of Pleasley Vale, the important industrial heritage of Pleasley Mills and Estate Village located within the Vale that was founded by William Hollins and Co., later Viyella International, and the surrounding wooded and agricultural landscape. In particular, the relationship between the buildings and the natural landscape is considered to enhance the character of the Park and Vale beyond just that of each individual component.

The Pleasley Park and Vale Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan (3.25MB) has been prepared in partnership with Mansfield District Council. We adopted this at our meeting on 21st January 2009. The document was subsequently adopted by Mansfield District Council on 5th March 2009.

We are currently undertaking a review of the Pleasley Park and Vale Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan (4.15mb) also attached is the site notice (833kb) from Mansfield Council.

The document defines the special character and appearance of the area by assessing the built form, landscape and townscape value, it provides guidance on the implementation of certain saved policies in the Bolsover District Local Plan, and contains management proposals for the preservation and enhancement of the Pleasley Park and Vale Conservation Area.

The implementation of the management of the conservation area is being delivered by both Councils and overseen by the Pleasley Park and Vale Conservation Area Joint Advisory Committee.
