Daventry people can get involved with local plan

Daventry people are invited to get involved in the drafting of a new Settlements and Countryside Local Plan.

People can have their say on the issues that need to be considered in the drafting of the plan which will contain detailed planning policies for Daventry town, the villages and the wider countryside to help inform future planning decisions.

At this stage there are no specific policies or proposals being put forward but the views of the community are wanted to help prepare the draft plan, which will be the subject of further public consultation next year.

It will then supplement the policies and proposals in the West Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy.

Ian Vincent, Chief Executive at Daventry District Council, said: “The aim of this first stage in the process is to invite responses from the local community and businesses on the issues to be considered in the Local Plan and seek views on how they should be addressed.

“All the comments we receive will help to inform the preparation of the draft Local Plan and I would encourage as many people as possible to have their say.”

An issues paper and response form is available from all the libraries in the district or from the Council’s Lodge Road offices.

Alternatively go to www.daventrydc.gov.uk/consultation or email planningpolicy@daventrydc.gov.uk.

The response form needs to be sent to Robert Keith at Local Strategy Service, Daventry District Council, Lodge Road, Daventry, Northamptonshire, NN11 4FP, by Friday, November 30.
