Online exhibition to showcase plans for Badby conservation area

Residents and anyone else with an interest can learn more about plans to protect Badby’s history and heritage, in an exhibition to be held over the online video conferencing facility Zoom. 

The session will run from 6.30pm until 7.30pm on Wednesday 2nd December. 

Details of how to join the meeting can be found at 

The page includes instructions for submitting questions to the exhibition, which must be done in advance.   

People can also submit their views on the proposals by emailing or by writing to Rhian Morgan, Heritage Policy Officer, Local Strategy Service, Daventry District Council, Lodge Road, Daventry, NN11 4FP. 

Paper copies of the proposals can be obtained by emailing or phoning 01327 871100. 

The deadline for comments is 5pm on Monday 18 January. 

The consultation has been launched by DDC as part of a wider review of the District’s conservation areas – places 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.  

Badby’s consultation is being run for a second time after being disrupted by the lockdown in March. Comments made earlier are being carried forward, so anyone who submitted views last time does not need to do so again.
