The Parish Council is considering ways to make the playing field more attractive to users, without increasing the annual cost of maintenance There is a commitment for an item on the September PC agenda, to discuss the options for securing funding for renovations to the pavilion and the purchase of some equipment for the field. There is also a proposal to cut the field in a different way, from the beginning of the season in 2019. The idea is to mow an area shown on the diagram shown below with a more superior cut and to leave the area around it largely unmown, creating a meadow-like margin which would encourage insects and birds and generally add to the biodiversity of the area. The financial benefit would be that a better cut could be achieved to a smaller area at a similar to cost to the current figure. Diagrame of proposed new cutting pattern Kimbells Field-1
Councillors would like to know what you think of this idea, so please email your views to the email@example.com, prior to the discussion in September.
Consultation on the Settlements and Countryside Local Plan Part 2
Daventry District Council will be consulting on the Proposed Submission Settlements and Countryside Local Plan Part 2 in the middle of August, following approval by Full Council on the 26th July 2018. You can view the Plan and the accompanying policies maps at the following webpage:
The National Planning Framework (NPPF), published by the Department for Communities and Local Government in March 2012, sets out the governments planning policies for England. Paragraphs 76 to 78 introduce a new Local Green Space designation (LGS) to protect local green areas of particular importance to local communities. This will enable communities, in certain circumstances, to identify and protect areas that are of value to them through local and neighbourhood plans.
In October 2017 the PC nominated sites within the Parish for designation as Local Green Space.
The consultation will start on the 13th August and close at 4.30pm on the 5th October 2018. Daventry Town Council, Parish Councils and Parish Meetings will be sent a hard copy of the Proposed Submission Local Plan and map book the week beginning the 13th August.
