People are invited to give their views on plans which aim to protect the historic interest of the parishes of Badby and Creaton.
Daventry District Council (DDC) has produced a new draft appraisal and management plan for the conservation areas in both the Badby and Creaton, following reviews.
In Badby, the plan suggests extending the boundary of the conservation area to include Badby Primary School, homes in The Banks, Main Street, land to the south west of Church Hill Farm, Springfield House in Court Yard Lane, Nonesuch Cottage and no 5 Bunkers Hill.
A number of minor amendments to remove small parcels of land and property from the conservation area are also proposed.
In Creaton the proposed changes include extending the conservation area to include a row of cottages and The Bricklayer’s Arms on Welford Road, land to the west, north and northeast of Creaton Lodge, and a row of cottages in Home Farm Close.
DDC is now inviting comments on the proposals, which can be viewed at www.daventrydc.gov.uk/conservationareas, at the Council offices in Lodge Road, Daventry, or from the libraries at Brixworth, Long Buckby, Woodford Halse, Daventry and Moulton.
People have until 5pm on Monday 27 April to have their say by email to email@example.com by post to Rhian Morgan, Heritage Policy Officer, Local Strategy Service, Daventry District Council, Lodge Road, Daventry, NN11 4FP.
There will also be an opportunity for people to meet Council officers and ask questions about the proposals about the proposals for Badby at Badby Village Hall on Monday 16 March from 3.30 to 7pm.
A similar event will be held in Creaton and details of this will be published at www.daventrydc.gov.uk/conservationareas as soon as they are confirmed.
The consultation has been launched by DDC as part of a wider review of the District’s conservation areas – areas considered worthy of preservation or enhancement because of their special architectural or historic interest.
Designation as a conservation area puts in place tighter planning controls for anyone seeking permission to alter or demolish a building, or carry out work to trees, in order to maintain the special interest of the area.
The review aims to ensure that the District’s conservation areas are fit for purpose. It looks at whether their boundaries should be changed and whether further controls should be introduced within them.
