Residents living in four conservation areas are being invited to public meetings where they can say what they think is special about their neighbourhood and how it should be looked after.

The meetings are the last in a complete review of Wandsworth’s 45 conservation areas.

Granting a neighbourhood conservation area status aims to preserve and enhance its character and appearance. It means that any new development should be carried out in a way that does not harm the area's distinctive qualities.

Each one is has its own individual 'conservation area appraisal' setting out what is special about the neighbourhood in terms of its history and form of development, spatial qualities and architecture.

New draft appraisals have now been prepared for the following conservation areas:

· Alton
· Deodar Road
· Park Town
· Putney Embankment

Residents will be able to speak to conservation officers and express their views on the drafts at the following venues and times.

Park Town - Members’ Library, Battersea Arts Centre, Lavender Hill, SW11 5TN. 7pm, Tuesday 14 September.

Putney Embankment and Deodar Road - Brewer Building Hall, St Mary’s Church, Putney High St, SW15 1SN. 7pm, Thursday 16 September.
