Lee Manor conservation area was designated in 1975.
Houses were built from the 1860s on land owned by the Baring family, who lived in the manor house (now Manor House Library).
The variety of mainly two storey, pale stock brick houses and terraces, often set behind well planted gardens and the presence of Manor House Gardens give the area a pleasant suburban quality.
The Lee Manor Conservation Area Appraisal sets out the character of the area which the Council seeks to preserve and enhance. The information contained within is used in the determination of planning applications in the area.
Article 4 direction
We have made an Article 4 direction to encourage the retention of high quality architectural features and ensure that changes are undertaken sympathetically.
