Neighbourhood plans

Neighbourhood planning activity in West Northamptonshire

There are 165 town and parish councils in West Northamptonshire, many of which are involved at the various stages of producing a neighbourhood development plan (NDP). For further information about which NDPs are at each stage can be found below.

The neighbourhood area maps show plans at area designation, draft, submission, made and reviewed stages. They can be downloaded below:

This stage is also known as ‘the Regulation 14 stage’ and involves the town and parish councils consulting on plan proposals.

Plans listed here are at pre-submission consultation stage. Details of progress on these plans can be obtained by clicking on the names below which will take you to the websites of the relevant parish and town councils.

This stage is also known as ‘the Regulation 16 stage’ and follows submission of the draft NDP and supporting documents to us, who are responsible for organising the consultation.

Arthingworth Neighbourhood Plan

At its meeting of Planning Policy Council on 22 November 2023, West Northamptonshire Council agreed that the Arthingworth Neighbourhood Plan, as modified by the examiners recommendations, should proceed to referendum. The referendum relating to the Arthingworth Neighbourhood Plan will be held on 8th February 2024.

The question which will be asked is: 
“Do you want West Northamptonshire Council to use the neighbourhood plan for Arthingworth to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?”

In accordance with the regulations we have published a Neighbourhood Plan Information Statement to support the referendum.

The specified documents referred to in the information statement are available below.

The Appendices for the Neighbourhood plan can be found on the Arthingworth Parish Council website.
