The charm and appeal of Brentham comes from its green landscapes and the distinctive architecture of its well cared-for houses. Together they create an attractive oasis of calm in the busy 21st Century world – something that we all want to preserve. Brentham did not happen by accident – it was designed to look this way – and it has an important place in the architectural, social and town planning history of the 20th century.
On these pages we will explain what makes Brentham so special and the work that goes into maintaining its unique character, described in the Brentham Garden Estate Conservation Area Appraisal. The local authority designated Brentham a conservation area with Article 4 Direction. Strict planning controls are in force to preserve its special character.
