Brantingham Conservation Area
In 2003, Brantingham Parish Council was approached by East Riding Of Yorkshire Council with a formal proposal to create a conservation area. Following discussions between both councils, a Public Exhibition was held and residents were asked to give their views on the proposal. Further discussions took place in light of the comments received and amendments were made to the original proposals. Finally, the Brantingham Conservation Area was designated on 29th June 2005. A re-appraisal was undertaken in 2010 with a view to meeting current national government requirements and an updated and extended Brantingham Conservation Area was designated in March of 2011. As shown on the map, the conservation area encompasses most of the village.
