Reminder regarding Tiffield village conservation status

Posted: Thu, 30 Jul 2020 15:48 by Andrew Tennet

Hi all,

I have been asked to remind residents that large areas of the village have been designated/awarded status as a Conservation Area by South Northamptonshire Council.

In effect this area of conservation runs from the southern end of the village almost up to Meadow Rise.

The Conservation Order means that the majority of structural work undertaken within the conservation boundary, the felling of trees, erection of outbuildings or any other such work should only be undertaken with planning consent from South Northamptonshire Council. More »

The last time SNC conducted a review of the village and the conservation status was in 2016.

The parish council is not aware of when the next inspection might take place.

Whilst there have been no complaints from any resident in respect of any work undertaken within the conservation area, if and when SNC decide to conduct an inspection of the village, any work that has been undertaken without planning permission could result in SNC requiring a retrospective application or insist that the work be reversed and original fittings put back or that the alterations be changed to be more sympathetic to how the area/building was previously.

I attach a copy of the order itself and recommend that you check to see what the scope of the order includes.

I also attach a map highlighting the conservation order area.

Regards

SNC Decision letter re Planning Inspectors report, Local Plan Pt 2 and IM Properties

Posted: Fri, 24 Jul 2020 14:56 by Andrew Tennet

Hi all,

Please be aware that the Parish Council have been notified of the following by South Northamptonshire Council

'At a meeting of Council on 22 July 2020 South Northamptonshire Council resolved to adopt the South Northamptonshire Local Plan (Part 2) 2011-2029.

The South Northamptonshire Local Plan (Part 2) now becomes part of the Development Plan for South Northamptonshire and will be used in decision making and the planning of the area. More »

The South Northamptonshire Local Plan (Part 2) replaces all of the saved policies of the 1997 South Northamptonshire Local Plan (saved policies 2007) and supersedes Policy H2 and Policy H6 of the West Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy 2011-2029 (adopted in 2014).

Further details on the adoption of the Part 2 Plan, including details of the legal challenge period, can be found on the Council's website at

https://www.southnorthants.gov.uk/info/65/local-plan-part-2-and-evidence/40/local-plan-part-2/12."

This is the first step in the process to allow a number of areas of land in the area to be developed, not least of which is the land along Tiffield Lane, where IM Properties have proposed to build their new development.

For your information

Closure of Eastcote Road - 10th August 2020

Posted: Wed, 22 Jul 2020 11:17 by Andrew Tennet

Hi all,

Please be aware that the Parish Council has been notified of the closure of the Eastcote Road from the 10th August for up to three days.

The closure is to undertake urgent repair work to the gully and drains at the bottom end of the road just past the entrance to Claydon Field.

The closures will take effect from 09.15am till 3,30pm on each day and will include the section of the road from the junction of High Street North to the Parish boundary. More »

This work is vital to repair and clear the drains along this section and to attend to problems with the retaining wall behind one of the drains.

As some of you will be aware, Tiffield has a history of some flooding during periods of heavy rain, and this work will help to prevent that occurring.

Plans for the closure can be viewed at https://one.network/?tm=117901933

Best regards
