Exhibition to look at conservation areas in historic villages

Posted: Mon, 10 Jun 2019 10:17 by Josie Flavell

People with an interest in the history and heritage of West Haddon and Great Brington are invited to get involved in conservation area reviews for the villages.

Conservation areas have tighter planning controls for anyone seeking permission to alter or demolish a building, or carry out work to trees, in order to maintain the special interest of the area.

Great Brington's conservation area was first designated in 1998, so the review will look at whether it is still fit-for-purpose and whether changes need to be made to further protect its historic features. More »

West Haddon does not currently have a conservation area and its review will determine whether one is required.

As part of the reviews, Daventry District Council (DDC) is giving people an opportunity to share their views at public exhibitions in both villages at the following locations and times:

  • West Haddon Village Hall on Tuesday 18 June from 3.30pm to 7pm
  • Great Brington Reading Room on Tuesday 2 July from 3.30pm to 6.30pm

The events are a chance to explore and share the history of the villages and discuss how their special features can be protected in future.

They are open to all members of the public and the Council encourages anyone with any questions relating to the projects to go along. Any comments made will help shape DDC's proposals for the conservation areas.

The reviews are part of a wider project looking at Daventry District's Conservation Areas. To find out more visit www.daventrydc.gov.uk/conservationareas » Less

Local Government Reform Update

Posted: Tue, 04 Jun 2019 11:16 by Josie Flavell

Unitary programme re-designed to include more transformation work prior to Vesting Day 2021

Following the Secretary of State's announcement, two brand new unitary councils will be established in Northamptonshire on 1 April 2021 (Vesting Day), a year later than we originally anticipated.

This extra time allows the councils to carry out some transformation work on the services currently delivered across the county. More »

This will require a different approach to delivering the programme, which previously focussed on 'safe and legal from day one' - this remains a priority but re-configuring services is just as important.

The Chief Executives and Leaders have re-visited the plan to build in this extra time and have agreed a single integrated plan for the whole county with a greater focus on transformation. We know that when we get to implementation, the West and North will do things differently, and the plan will accommodate that variation.

This 'one programme, one team' approach will involve all eight Chief Executives taking ownership of work streams and being collectively accountable for their delivery to the Leaders' Group. This approach will ensure that this transformation programme is owned and delivered by all Northamptonshire councils.

Our vision for the new unitaries is set out in the Prospectus for Change, which can be found on the Council's website at www.daventrydc.gov.uk/lgr

Water Safety

Our PCSOs have received reports that young people have been jumping off bridges into the canal. This is dangerous. The canal is shallow and there may be hazards under the water. Swimming in canal can also result in waterborne illnesses like Weil's Disease.

Attached is a tweet from the Fire Service.
