"A Conservation Management Plan is simply a document which explains why a place is significant and how you will sustain that significance in any new use, alteration, repair or management.

A Conservation Management Plan is a document which sets out the significance of a heritage asset, and how that significance will be retained in any future use, management, alteration or repair.

It is based on a very simple thinking process which starts with describing what is there, why it matters, what is happening to it and the principles by which you will manage it and then sets more detailed work programmes for maintenance, management, access, use or other issues.

A plan helps you care for a site by making sure you understand what matters and why BEFORE you take major decisions. The approach can be used for any type of heritage asset, site or place" (By the Heritage Lottery Fund)
