The Northgate Conservation Area was originally designated in
1994. It is slightly larger than the Blakey Moor Townscape Project Area and is formed around the north-south axes of Northgate and King William Street.
There are approximately one hundred and fifty properties within the conservation area. These include many of Blackburn’s municipal buildings, such as the statutory listed
Town Hall, Central Police Station and Courthouse and the town’s museum and art gallery. While many other buildings are not listed, they still hold historical and architectural significance and being designated within a Conservation Area helps the Council to protect these buildings and the historical nature of the area.
The Northgate Conservation Area Character Appraisal was produced in 2009 and details all of the buildings and features that are considered significant.
