Reminder regarding Tiffield village conservation status

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.

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.
