Conservation

Port Sunlight has been a designated Conservation Area since 1978 and the Port Sunlight Village Trust is responsible for preserving and maintaining the village to the highest standards.

Dedicated to safeguarding the essence and character of Port Sunlight, the Trust has transformed a number of major sites over recent years. Every year, the Trust spends more than £2 million on cyclical building work, conservation projects and landscape maintenance.

Port Sunlight was the first conservation area in Wirral to produce a comprehensive conservation and management plan. Part funded by English Heritage, this plan recognises the relationship between the landscape and the built environment of the village and treats both with equal importance. Every element has a part to play.

In consultation with Wirral Council and Historic England we are look at ways we can work together to create heritage partnership agreements, make it easier to navigate listed building consent orders, gain Heritage Lottery Fund support to develop our museum to raise awareness of good conservation practice and complete a detailed survey of every house in the village.
