Hampstead Garden Suburb is internationally recognised as one of the finest examples of early twentieth century domestic architecture and town planning. It was designated as a conservation area in 1967. It is unique among the Conservation Areas in Barnet in that the Suburb is protected both by the statutory powers which the London Borough of Barnet has, and by Hampstead Garden Suburb Trust which has separate legal powers to "maintain and preserve the present character and amenities of Hampstead Garden Suburb."
The Conservation Area Appraisal was prepared in collaboration with the London Borough of Barnet, the Hampstead Garden Suburb Residents Association and the Hampstead Garden Suburb Trust. It is a lengthy document which is divided into 22 character areas, including 5 areas of open space. Each character area has its own appraisal map. The appraisal was formally adopted in October 2010.
Each area's appraisal and map can be viewed via the links on the right. The documents are in downloadable PDF format.
