Weedon conservation proposals to be exhibited

People in Weedon are invited to a second exhibition which will showcase proposals to protect its historic interest. 


It is being held in the Village Hall Annexe in Weedon from 4.30pm to 7pm on Monday 16 October.


The event will be a chance for villagers to see what is being proposed and discuss the draft plans with officers from Daventry District Council.


The exhibition is being held 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 will look at whether their boundaries should be changed and whether further controls should be introduced within them. 


New conservation area designations are being proposed in Weedon Bec and Flore and draft Appraisal and Management Plans have been produced for each area with the help of feedback received during public displays held earlier this year. 


Exhibitions were held in Weedon Bec and Flore earlier this month to showcase the proposals.


People have until 5pm on Monday 30 October to comment on the drafts, with any feedback received being used to help shape the final documents.

  

It is intended that the final versions would be adopted by the Council as supplementary planning documents, giving them an official status to help in the determining of planning decisions.


The draft Appraisal and Management Plan for the Weedon Bec conservation area proposes three areas of designation covering the historic cores of Upper Weedon, Lower Weedon and Road Weedon (along the A45). 


In Flore, the proposed boundary covers the majority of the historic settlement, including land in Flore Park to the west.


Both plans make proposals for introducing a number of ‘Article 4’ directions to protect historic features in specific locations, as well as for protecting a number of properties by designating them as locally-listed buildings.


The draft appraisal and management plans and details of how to comment on them can be found at www.daventrydc.gov.uk/ConservationAreas 


They are also available for inspection at DDC’s offices in Lodge Road, Daventry as well as at the libraries in Daventry, Moulton, Brixworth, Long Buckby and Woodford Halse. Appraisals will also be available in the villages at Weedon Bec Post Office and The White Hart Pub in Flore.
