Through its Planning Committee the Trust examines all planning applications made in The Hill’s conservation areas. This is to ensure the preservation of open spaces and landscaping, especially around The Hill’s fringes, to take a pragmatic view on the mix of residential, educational, shopping and business uses, to protect all examples of good architecture and interesting townscape, to encourage design which recognises and enhances The Hill’s special and diverse character, to oppose the loss of any of The Hill’s trees, and to encourage new planting.
