Rail Developments

The Parish Council have recently addressed concerns about the proposed Roxhill Gateway development which is proposed for land around J15 of the M1. These concerns relate to the lack of information and advanced notice of the exhibitions held in October and the information provided at these exhibitions. The Parish Council will keep the village informed when any further information is available. The Parish Council are also concerned about the proposed Ashfield development at J15A and will provide more information when available.

Northampton County Council Cutbacks

Northamptonshire County Council needs to find £115m savings over the next four years predominantly to meet social care costs in the county. The Library and Information Service must share in this financial challenge and seek to reduce costs to the tax payer. The low cost per visit compared to other library services demonstrates that this cannot be achieved by further efficiencies alone, and requires a more fundamental reshaping of the service to ensure it is fit for the future.The review of the library service will comprehensively examine the current Northamptonshire Library and Information Service as it operates over its current 36 static and one mobile site against four measures of accessibility, quality, availability and sustainability in line with the review approach recommended by the National Libraries Taskforce. It will examine key statistics and trends within the service before setting out options about how a future library service may be shaped. It will test these proposals against the common design principles of library services and consider the impact of the proposals on the residents of Northamptonshire. This consultation and its outcomes will play a significant part in informing the new library strategy 2018-2022. We are consulting upon three options for the future of the Library and Information Service. Information about these options and the impacts they will have on our community can be found at the website below. The council want to hear your views about these options to understand the best way forward for the Library and Information Service in Northamptonshire. To fill in the online survey please visit:
