"How to" guides

We are drafting a set of “how to” guides to make it easier for residents to enhance their property and contribute to the special character of the Lakes Estate.

The guides are based on the Conservation Area Character Appraisal and the experience of residents who have recently undertaken improvements. Please let us know if you have any tips to share – What worked well? Where did problems arise? Where did you find specialist materials?
