West Northamptonshire Strategic Plan – Spatial Options Consultation

West Northamptonshire Council is preparing a new Strategic Plan which will cover the period up to 2050.

The Options Consultation is the second stage in preparing the new Plan (after the Issues Consultation), no decisions have been made yet and the purpose of the document is to seek views on a Vision, Spatial Objectives and Development Options at this stage.

WNC have produced a Spatial Options Consultation document which includes a series of questions on which they would like our views. There is also an additional opportunity to put forward ideas for potential development sites through a further 'call for sites' exercise.

The Spatial Options Consultation document and background documents including the call for sites form are available on the Strategic Plan consultation website.

The Parish Council have submitted a response which is available below. We encourage all residents to respond to the consultation. We are also contacting our local District Councillors and MP to support our views.

The consultation period closes at 12 noon on Friday 24th December 2021.

You can inspect a hard copy of the Options Consultation document in West Northamptonshire Council's Offices at Lodge Road, Daventry, The Guildhall, Northampton and all public libraries in West Northamptonshire during normal opening hours.
