Conservation Areas Advisory Committees (CAACs)

What are CAACs?

Our borough has the benefit of three independent Conservation Areas Advisory Committees (CAACs) that provide a way for local groups and residents with an interest in heritage to assist us in protecting and enhancing Kingston's conservation areas.


CAAC membership comprises of people with an interest in the built environment and its heritage, and is drawn from local amenity societies, residents' associations, independent historical, architectural and planning experts, and local residents and businesses.


There is no statutory duty for us to operate or facilitate CAACs, nor is there national guidance on how these should be organised, operated or on the composition of their membership. CAACs are independent of the Council and anyone can stand for election.
