Conservation areas

Dulwich Village

The Dulwich Village Conservation Area is located at the southern end of the borough and Denmark Hill, Camberwell, East Dulwich, Herne Hill and Sydenham loosely border it. The character of the conservation area is established by the historic layout of property boundaries and thoroughfares, the sense of openness and greenery, views along streets as well as between buildings and other townscape characteristics. The buildings date from the mid 18th to the 21st centuries, with excellent examples of domestic architecture ranging from grand houses to humble terraces.  Substantial Georgian houses and fine Victorian and Edwardian terraces sit comfortably alongside 1930s family homes. There are also good examples of 1960s architecture as well as more recently approved high quality modern developments. All of these make a positive contribution to establishing the special interest of Dulwich village.
