Date last amended
The original Inverness Conservation Area, which incorporated much of what is now Riverside, but not Crown, was designated by Inverness Town Council with effect from 10/09/1970, with three different areas (1, 2 and 3) described individually. The designation order was published in the Edinburgh Gazette on 15/09/1970. The designation was subsequently amended by Inverness Town Council with effect from 30/07/1974 which combined the former 3 areas into a single area designated as 'Conservation Area No.1 The River Ness and Town Centre Conservation Area'. An additional area at Clachnaharry was also designated at that time (Area 2 - see DHG5843). These amendments were formally published in the Edinburgh Gazette on 02/08/1974.
A Conservation Area Character Appraisal for the Inverness River Ness and Town Centre CA was carried out for the Highland Council in 2004. This recommended a number of additions be made to the Conservation Area.
On 23/01/2006 the original Inverness River Ness and Town Centre Conservation Area was de-designated and Inverness (Riverside) was designated as a new Conservation Area with accompanying Article 4 Direction, and which included the recommended amendments. The Crown area of the city was designated as a Conservation Area in its own right (see DHG5857). The order was published in the Edinburgh Gazette on 03/02/2006.
A Conservation Area Management Plan for the Old Town area of the city was adopted by Highland Council in June 2015.
The Conservation Area shares part of its eastern boundary with the adjacent Inverness (Crown) Conservation Area.
