Conservation Area Guides - Newry

Date published: 20 May 1983

The design guides generally provide information on the planning context, historical development, description or character appraisal of the area, the designation and guidelines for development proposals.


Since its original designation in 1983, Newry Conservation Area has been extended twice.
In 1992 the boundary was extended southward to incorporate the historic commercial spine of Hill Street/John Mitchel Place; the original 12th century settlement and areas abutting the canal/river.
In 2001 the area was extended northwards to incorporate the historical significance of the Newry Canal to the town.
