PLANNING (LISTED BUILDINGS AND CONSERVATION AREAS) ACT 1990

EXTENSION TO KINGSLEY CONSERVATION AREA NORTHAMPTON

Notice is hereby given in pursuance of Sections 69 and 70 of the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 that Northampton Borough Council have determined that the area described in the Schedule to this notice is an area of special architectural or historic interest the character or appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance and have accordingly designed the said area as a Conservation Area which shall be included in the existing Conservation Area known as the Kingsley Conservation Area.

The effect of the designation of the Conservation Area may be summarised as follows:

  • 1 Where any application for planning permission for development of land in or adjacent to the Conservation Area is made to the Council and the development would, in the opinion of the Council, affect the character or appearance of the Conservation Area, the application will be subject to the special procedure for publicity in Section 73 of the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990.
  • 2 Anyone wishing to demolish a building or part of a building situated within the Conservation Area must first apply for consent to demolish to the Council. Such an application must be made separately and not as part of an application for planning permission for redevelopment of the site. Some buildings may be exempt from this requirement.
  • 3 Anyone wishing to cut down, top, lop or uproot a tree situated within the Conservation Area must give six weeks prior notice of their intention to the Council. This requirement does not apply to trees already subject to a Tree Preservation Order but the restrictions contained in the Tree Preservation Order continue to apply to such trees.

A map of the Conservation Area may be inspected free of charge at the One Stop Shop, The Guildhall, St Giles Square, Northampton from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm on Wednesdays.
