1st April 2021 is Vesting Day for North Northamptonshire Council (NNC) and West Northamptonshire Council (WNC).
All principal council duties, powers and functions are now vested in the unitary councils. Today is also the day that Corby Town Council (CTC) and Kettering Town Council (KTC) officially come into existence, so Happy Birthday to those two brand new local councils! It means that Northamptonshire is, as of today, 100% parished. Every part of Northamptonshire is now represented by a parish, town, or community council or a parish meeting. These truly local councils are the FIRST tier of local government, closest to the people they serve, and together the county's 271 local councils have a very strong voice!
New conservation areas have been designated in Long Buckby and Clipston as part of a project to protect the architectural and historic interest parishes across Daventry District.
District councillors also approved amendments to existing conservation areas in Creaton, Badby, Great Brington and Preston Capes.
A number of individual buildings across the five parishes were 'locally listed', and there are proposals to put in place an Article 4 direction to protect historic features on a range of properties in the villages.
Appraisal and management plans for the conservation areas were also adopted as supplementary planning documents, meaning they will be used to help determine planning decisions in those parishes in future.
The measures were agreed by Daventry District Council (DDC) during it final meeting of Full Council on Thursday 18 March, and will continue to be in effect under the new West Northamptonshire Council which will replace DDC this Thursday (1 April).
They are part of a wider programme of reviews of the District's conservation areas, which put 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.
A total of 27 reviews have now been completed since the programme began, helping to protect the architectural and historic interest of parishes across Daventry District.
More information about the conservation areas will be available from www.daventrydc.gov.uk/ConservationAreas
Anyone with questions about planning controls should contact the Council's Development Control department.
