People with an interest in the history and heritage of the villages of Badby and Hellidon are invited to get involved in reviews of their conservation areas.
Conservation areas have 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 reviews will seek to determine whether the conservation areas covering Badby and Hellidon are still fit for purpose, or whether changes are needed to further protect the historic features of the two villages.
As part of that process, Daventry District Council (DDC) is giving people an opportunity to share their views at two public exhibitions this month:
• Hellidon Village Hall on Thursday 21 November from 3.30pm to 7pm
• Badby Village Hall on Monday 25 November from 3.30pm to 7pm.
The events are a chance to explore and share the history of the villages and discuss how their special features can be protected in future.
They are open to all members of the public and the Council encourages anyone with any questions relating to the project to go along. Any comments made will help shape DDC’s proposals for the conservation areas.
The reviews are part of a wider project looking at Daventry District’s Conservation Areas. To find out more visit http://www.daventrydc.gov.uk/conservationareas
