Northwich Town Centre is a designated conservation area, which aims to protect the many timber-framed Victorian properties characterising the commercial centre around High Street and Witton Street. Environmental enhancement, in the form of traditional street furniture and sign posting, match the character of the area and extensive tree planting has also been carried out.
A small number of listed buildings are located in the town, but few ancient buildings remain as a consequence of past land subsidence caused by the pumping of brine.
