Following a process of Conservation Areas appraisals, the council is proposing to introduce additional protection to three Conservation Areas within Newport: Caerleon, Stow Park and The Shrubbery.

Follow the links to view the Article 4(2) Directions in full:

The directions were sent to each property within the Conservation Area.
