Charlotte Street West
Charlotte Street West Conservation Area is a lively area in the hinterland between two major shopping streets-Tottenham Court Road and Oxford Street. There is an eclectic mix of architectural styles here, including Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian development, along with some post war and modern infill; a result of the piecemeal nature of the area's development.
Built form is of a predominantly small scale and is composed of narrow street frontages, a reflection of the conservation area's original Georgian character. Buildings are of 3 to 5 storeys and are largely composed of red brick, with stone detailing. The main streets in the area are linked by a series of narrow pedestrian passages, which are an important component of the urban grain of the area. The small-scale buildings house a wide variety of uses including restaurants, specialist suppliers, wholesalers, small offices and a substantial residential population. This variety of uses strongly defines the character of the conservation area.
The conservation area was designated in 1974 and extended in 1982.
