Welsh local authorities

Your local authority should be your first port of call for any questions you might have about listed building regulations, conservation areas, tree preservation orders or other matters that might affect your historic building and its surroundings. Most Welsh authorities have building conservation officers with extensive knowledge of regional building practices and styles and wide experience of the maintenance and repair problems that owners of historic buildings frequently encounter. 

The following list provides contact details for the relevant departments of all Welsh local and national park authorities. Named contacts, if available, precede the more general information.
