Daventry District Council (DDC) is inviting views from residents, businesses and organisations on a three-year plan to improve the district.

The authority is looking for feedback on the Draft Corporate Strategic Plan which sets out the objectives and priorities for the council over the next three years.

In the documents, the council highlights improvements to the business economy, learning and skills, protecting and enhancing the environment as well as promoting healthy, safe and strong communities and individuals. These are Daventry District Council’s top priorities.

The 13 draft priorities proposed include attracting and facilitating a range of investments, reducing waste and energy use and improving access to services.

It also wants to improve access to services, ensuring people have the housing they need and that the Daventry district is a place that encourages a safe and healthy lifestyle.

The draft plan, which is produced every three years, also includes a series of measures that will help the council monitor the progress it makes towards achieving its objectives and priorities.

It also sets out the council’s values, which help to shape the culture of the authority and guide the way it works.

Speaking about the draft document and urging people to feedback about the plans, Cllr Chris Millar, leader of DDC, said: “The Corporate Strategic Plan sets out our vision and objectives for making Daventry District an even better place for residents, businesses and visitors alike.

“It also contains the top priorities and measures that give us the clear direction for making these improvements and charting our progress effectively.

“I would encourage residents to take a look at the draft Plan and respond with any comments and suggestions they have before the deadline later this month.”

People have until midnight on Tuesday, (January 21) to give their feedback on the Draft Corporate Strategic Plan.

Anyone wishing to view the draft plan and complete a short survey can do so by going online at www.daventrydc.gov.uk/consultation.

Alternatively people can visit the council’s offices in Lodge Road, Daventry.
