Rules which protect the special character a country estate on the outskirts of Towcester, are currently subject to public consultation.
This week South Northamptonshire Council (SNC) opened a consultation on the review of the Easton Neston Conservation Area boundary.
Councillor Roger Clarke, SNC’s portfolio holder for planning and environment, said: “The Easton Neston Conversation Area was established in 2005 and this review will ensure it still serves the area in the way it should.
“Conservation Areas are not intended to prevent change but to help ensure the important historical aspects of an area’s character are conserved and respected.
“Easton Neston is hugely significant to Towcester and it is important everyone has a chance to have their say on how it should be protected for future generations."
Conservation Areas are designed to preserve and enhance the special character of the area they cover and provide stricter guidelines for planning permissions.
They may also prevent the demolition of buildings which contribute to the area’s character.
The draft plans are available to view at www.southnorthants.gov.uk/consultation or at South Northamptonshire Council’s office in Towcester.
Comments and views should be submitted to the Design and Conservation Team in writing to hertitage@southnorthants.gov.uk or by post to Design and Conservation Team, The Forum, Moat Lane, Towcester, NN12 6AD before 5pm Thursday, 8 March 2018.
