Grangewood Park - woodland walk now open!

The work to replace the unsafe slabbed footpath in Grangewood Park has been completed, and the woodland walk is now open!

The existing slabs and concrete base were removed and crushed on site for the base of the new path, reducing the environmental impact of the work. The path was then re-laid using hoggin; a compactable material made of a mix of clay, gravel, and sand.

Hoggin is an environmentally friendly alternative to concrete and block paving, as it is permeable and can be used around tree roots, which meant that we did not have to remove any trees or roots during the process. It is used widely in National Parks and provides a stable and hard wearing surface for users which once laid, forms a solid and safe base for pedestrians, mobility vehicles and pushchairs.

West Northants Strategic Plan: Spatial Option 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. More »

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.

Consultation - Weedon Road/St James' Road Bus Lane Enforcement

West Northamptonshire Consultation Register Have your say on bus lane enforcement at Weedon Road / St James' Road, Northampton

West Northamptonshire Council has launched a public consultation on bus lane enforcement at Westbridge in the Weedon Road / St James area of Northampton.

The purpose of the bus lane is to ensure that bus services run on time, in order to reduce car journeys, reduce congestion, and improve choice. It also allows taxis and active travel users access at all times. More »

Enforcement has been in place since February last year, when the previous county council installed a number-plate recognition camera near the rail bridge in St James Road. The bus lane is in operation 24/7, with motorists facing a fine of up to £60 if they break the rules.

The consultation is asking people's views on a number of options, including whether to:

  • Reduce the enforcement hours to a minimum period from 7.30am to 9.30am
  • Reduce the enforcement hours to 7am to 7pm
  • Leave the enforcement hours as they currently operate

The consultation is open to all residents, stakeholders and people representing organisations.

This consultation closes at midnight on Tuesday 2 November 2021.

Rising Covid cases in Northamptonshire

Cases of Covid are rising across the county, by getting both jabs you reduce the chance of being hospitalised by over 92%. This NHS video features young Covid patients talking about their experiences of suffering from serious Covid-19 and developing Long Covid, and the experience of Doctors and frontline staff treating them: https://youtu.be/XEwwcIs6aH4.

"In hindsight I wish I had taken the jab when I was initially offered it. I now understand that it would have likely reduced my chances of ending up in hospital or given me a stronger chance of fighting it off. I would take that in a heartbeat" – Quincy, 31.
