There are around 550 architectural conservation areas across the Republic of Ireland. An architectural conservation is an area of specific architectural or historic interest. Properties located in architectural conservation areas are protected by legislation that limits the level of renovations allowed on the building. Any works carried out must be in keeping with the area’s particular character and ensure that a building’s heritage aesthetic is maintained.

Can I install uPVC windows in architectural conservation areas?
