Porlock was first designated as a Conservation Area by Exmoor National Park Authority in 1984 and the boundary extended in 1987. It was last reviewed in 2002. The document aims to identify: - the influences that have given Porlock its special character; - what chiefly reflects this character and is most worth conserving; - what has suffered damage or loss and may need reinstating; - what should be considered in guiding future changes; - visual features that particularly need safeguarding. The existing conservation area boundary was also reviewed and the proposed new boundary included as an accompanying map.
