Decision awaited from Daventry District Council


Ashleigh House 35, Ware Road, Barby, Northamptonshire, CV23 8UE

Demolition and replacement of garage (revised scheme).

The Parish Council has no objections to this application.

Approved 2nd September 2020


Danetre Farm, Kilsby Road, Barby, Northamptonshire, CV23 8TU 

Variation of Condition 2 of planning permission DA/2005/0513 (Demolition of bungalow and construction of replacement dwelling) provision of fifth bedroom above garage and removal of Condition 3 relating to agricultural occupancy.

The Parish Council do not consider that the Agricultural Occupancy Condition should be removed from the dwelling at Danetre Farm, and therefore variation to Condition 2 should NOT take place. 

Approved 17th August 2020


45, Daventry Road, Barby, Northamptonshire, CV23 8TP

Retention of a porch to front of property. 

It was resolved to defer a decision until the previous application on this site (DA/2020/0136) has been determined by the Planning Inspectorate who will determine an appeal on the works. The appeal was lodged on 24 June 2020.

Refused 3rd September 2020

It is understood that the applicant has 12 months to take down the refused extension. 


Building Off Barby Road, Kilsby (Barby Parish)

Erection of replacement agricultural building for storage of animal feed and other agricultural supplements and occasional penning of livestock (part retrospective). 

No objections, however the Parish Council is disappointed that this application is part-retrospective

Approved 20th July 2020 


Land At Manor Works, Barby Lane, Barby, Northamptonshire

Outline planning permission for the erection of two industrial buildings (resubmission)

Since this site is an existing brownfield site, the Parish Council would not object to B1 Office business use as per Policy BOGP-1 of their Neighbourhood Development Plan, but they STRONGLY OBJECT to B2 Industrial, or B8 Warehousing use.
The Parish Council do not consider that there is any change in business need, and the document outlining business need submitted with the application is 3 years old and therefore felt to be too old to be used as justification for this application.
The state of the local highway infrastructure and road surfaces especially Onley lane, Barby Lane and Welton Road are in a very poor condition and would not be suitable for HGV use.
Congestion at pick up times at the Primary School is high, and HGVs travelling through the village would compromised the safety of children.
Additional HGV traffic would not be welcomed through the village and is contrary to the aims of Barby & Onley Neighbourhood Development Plan.
It was noted that walking to the site via Byway over Cart Hill is not a suitable form of access.
Should DDC be minded to grant permission, then the Parish Council would expect some s106 funding to mitigate damage to the local highway network.

Decision awaited from Daventry District Council

Decision awaited from Daventry District Council

The Council wish conditions to be applied to
a) Ensure that the byway entrance is not restricted for public access in any way
b) Ensure that the roadway is surfaced to the start of the byway
c) request that a vantage point with information board and viewing platform is incorporated to allow the public to view the Motte and be made aware of its history and significance.
