Originally designated on 04/03/1975 by Moray and Nairn Joint County Council prior to reorganisation under the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973. The designation order was formally published in the Edinburgh Gazette on 11/03/1975. A character appraisal was carried out in 2018-19 undertaken on behalf of The Highland Council, as a Grantown 250 legacy project led by The Grantown Society. It was supported by a project Steering Group consisting of representatives from The Grantown Society, CNPA, the Highland Council, Grantown and Vicinity Community Council, the Grantown Initiative, Highland Regional Councillors and Voluntary Action Badenoch and Strathspey (VABS). Recommendations were made to enlarge the Conservation Area in several areas. The proposed changes were adopted by the Highland Council with effect from 16/05/2019. The cancellation and de-designation order was published in the Edinburgh Gazette on 09/08/2019. A Conservation Area Management Plan was adopted by the Highland Council in August 2023.
