Course Description

Conservation Areas can be created where a local planning authority identifies an area of special architectural or historic interest, which deserves careful management to protect that character. A listed building is a structure of particular architectural and/or historic interest deserving of special protection. There are various conservation areas in Northamptonshire and many listed buildings both of which require special attention when considering planning applications.
