Help shape the future of planning in West Northamptonshire

Local plan web image

People across West Northamptonshire are being invited to have their say on the draft Local Plan strategy which enables West Northamptonshire Council (WNC) to plan for the future of the area positively and sustainably by guiding decisions on future development proposals and creating places where people wish to live, work and visit and will thrive.

The draft Plan sets out a vision and objectives for the area, its ambitions for new development and commitment to dealing with climate change. The Plan allocates land for housing and employment and contains a series of planning policies for these and many other topics such as leisure, transport, health and wellbeing, infrastructure and the environment and where development can and cannot take place.

Once adopted the new Plan will replace current plans that cover West Northamptonshire and form part of the development plan against which planning decisions are made.

This consultation is gives residents the opportunity to get involved with this stage of the local plan process and will help WNC consider and address issues before a final draft is produced.

People can have their say from Monday 8 April to Sunday 2 June by visiting: Have your say on West Northamptonshire's new draft Local Plan - West Northamptonshire Council - Citizen Space

Cllr Rebecca Breese, Cabinet Member for Strategic Planning, Built Environment and Rural Affairs at WNC, said: “This is a really exciting opportunity for local businesses, residents and community groups to help shape the future of planning across West Northamptonshire.

“The local plan provides the guiding principles for new development, dedicated green spaces and infrastructure across the area; and has an impact on everyone’s lives across the area. We invite the community to review the plans and have their say.”

The Plan is still being prepared, evidence gathered, and proposals considered, and WNC invite comments on the fully developed policies, the partly developed policies and any other parts of the Plan including allocations for housing and employment growth and guidance that applies to your area.

The draft Plan is accompanied by a number of technical documents and other evidence. All can be found on the dedicated New Local Plan for West Northamptonshire page.

The evidence will continue to be updated as the Plan progresses.
The UK Government Cabinet Office has recently launched the ‘Help for Households’ campaign which explains the 41 different government schemes available to help people with the cost of living, including new one-off payments as well as existing benefits and schemes.  These schemes have now been brought onto one Cost of Living Support website.
