Northamptonshire Strategic Plan: Spatial options consultation

West Northamptonshire Council is preparing a new strategic plan which will guide development for the area up to 2050.

The West Northamptonshire Strategic Plan (WNSP) sets out a vision for West Northamptonshire in 2050 and the objectives to realise the ambitions for our economy, our communities and our environment.

We want to hear from stakeholders and communities across the area and work together to ensure that we prepare the best plan possible for a sustainable future.

We are still at an early stage in plan preparation and the options being presented are potential rather than preferred, so this is a genuine opportunity to influence the outcome of the plan.

As part of this spatial options consultation, we want to hear your views on:

  • The spatial vision setting out the plan’s ambition for our economy, our communities and our environment
  • A set of spatial objectives to help achieve the vision
  • The housing and economic needs that we need to plan for
  • The potential spatial options that could be considered as part of the development strategy for the area

We are running a series of online and in-person events where you can learn more about the plan and ask questions. Details of the events can be found on the West Northamptonshire Consultation Hub, using the link below.

This consultation closes at midnight on Monday 6 December 2021.

Have your say

Please visit the West Northamptonshire Consultation Hub for further information about the consultation and how to have your say.

Northants Police, Fire & Crime Survey

Northamptonshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner, Stephen Mold, is in the process of writing his first joint plan for the county’s Police Force and Fire and Rescue Service and would like to hear your views.

For the first time, this is a plan for both police and fire, reflecting Stephen’s responsibility to set the strategic direction for both services in Northamptonshire. It is not an exhaustive list of all the activity that will happen, but it is intended to set the key priorities for both organisations.

The priorities proposed are:

  • effective and efficient response
  • prevention that keeps the county safe
  • protect and support those who are vulnerable
  • modern services that are fit for the future
  • deliver effective justice.

A number of objectives are set out under each of these priorities for the Chief Constable and Chief Fire Officer to deliver jointly and with partners.

I would be grateful if you could feed back your views by completing our short survey here, by Sunday 7th November.

To ensure that this plan is fit for purpose we’d like to hear from as many people in our community as possible. Please can I ask that you share the link to the survey with your contacts so that we can seek to address the issues that matter most to us all.

Thank you

Kind regards

Alexa Daly
Engagement Coordinator
Northamptonshire Office of the Police, Fire & Crime Commissioner

Halloween Advice

We want people to have fun, but we also want them to stay safe and respect those who may not want to join in the celebrations this Halloween.

Here are some tips to help ensure your evening does not turn into a nightmare:

  • All children should be accompanied by an adult when trick-or-treating
  • Only go to the houses of people who you know, and who are happy for you to call round
  • Never be tempted to go inside someone's house
  • Do not call at houses that have 'no trick or treat' posters on show. There may be elderly or vulnerable people living at these addresses who do not feel comfortable speaking to strangers
  • Keep to well-lit areas and don't take shortcuts through gardens or alleyways
  • Wear bright clothing or reflective strips, and always carry a torch
  • If you’re driving be aware of the increased foot traffic, drive slowly and be vigilant

Please remember Halloween is not an excuse for nuisance and intimidating behaviour. We are issuing a clear warning that anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated and action will be taken against criminal activity.

Report a concern 

Halloween is one of our busiest night of the year in terms of call handling so the ease the pressure on our call handlers please:

  • Only use 999 if it is a genuine emergency.
  • Go online (if you matter is not urgent / no longer in action and can wait to the next day) alternatively you can email us This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
  • You can continue to use 101 to report a matter if you wish.

Road Closures 15 Oct 21

HS2 will be extending the phase 4 road closure times on Boddington Road today, 14 October 2021 until 5.30pm and on the 15 October between 8.30am and 5.30pm. The times have been amended as some bat mitigation trees have been more time consuming to defeature / remove in accordance with ecological procedures than expected.

Below is a plan of the phase 4 closure and diversion route.

With this phase 4 timing extension we will complete this phase as planned on Friday 15 October 2021. The phase 5 works are due to commence as advertised on Monday 18 October on Banbury Road within the planned 9:30am to 3:30pm period.

Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
