The consultations have been launched by Daventry District Council as part of a wider review of the district’s conservation areas – which are places considered worthy of preservation or enhancement because of their architectural or historical importance.

Being designated as a conservation area allows tighter planning controls to be put in place for anyone applying to alter or demolish a building, or carry out work to trees.

Consultations for the villages of Badby and Creaton are being run for a second time after being disrupted by the first coronavirus lockdown in March. Comments from those who replied earlier this year are being carried forwards.

A number of online exhibitions will also be held to review conservation areas in Great Brington, Preston Capes and Hellidon; while there will also be exhibitions on proposals to designate new conservation areas in Clipston and Long Buckby. It comes ahead of a January deadline for comments on the conservation area proposals.

Residents of the parishes involved, or anyone else with an interest in their history and heritage, are invited to join the exhibitions, which will be held over the online video conferencing facility Zoom.

All of the sessions listed run from 6.30pm until 7.30pm, and take place on the following days. Badby (Wednesday, December 2); Creaton (Monday, December 7); Great Brington (Tuesday, December 8); Preston Capes (Wednesday, December 9); Hellidon (Monday, December 14); Clipston (Tuesday, December 15) and Long Buckby (Wednesday, December 16).

More information about the proposals for each parish, together with details of how to join the meetings can be found at www.daventrydc.gov.uk/conservationareas
