People across West Northamptonshire are being invited to have their say on the draft Local Plan strategy which enables West Northamptonshire Council (WNC) to plan for the future of the area positively and sustainably by guiding decisions on future development proposals and creating places where people wish to live, work and visit and will thrive.

The draft Plan sets out a vision and objectives for the area, its ambitions for new development and commitment to dealing with climate change. The Plan allocates land for housing and employment and contains a series of planning policies for these and many other topics such as leisure, transport, health and wellbeing, infrastructure and the environment and where development can and cannot take place.

Colleagues from the planning service are hosting events across the area to engage the local community on the proposals. These will include:

Brackley: The Old Fire Station Community Room, High Street, Brackley NN13 7D on Wednesday 1 May between 2 and 5pm

Northampton: Grosvenor Centre, Gather Unit, 1st Floor, Northampton, NN1 2EW on Thursday 2 May between 12 and 5pm

Towcester: West Northamptonshire Council, The Forum, Moat Lane, Towcester, NN12 6AD Wednesday 8 May between 2 and 6pm

This consultation is gives residents the opportunity to get involved with this stage of the local plan process and will help WNC consider and address issues before a final draft is produced.

People can have their say from Monday 8 April to Sunday 2 June by visiting the Local Plan consultation.
