Kimbells Field

The Parish Council is considering ways to make the playing field more attractive to users, without increasing the annual cost of maintenance and now wants to establish a short term working group of interested residents to help create a plan for development of the facilities.  A bid will then be submitted to Daventry District Council to undertake works.  However, time is short as the funding from DDC is limited and bids must be submitted soon to have any hope of success.  Please contact the Clerk register your interest and sign up to a couple of meetings to discuss the matter.

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:

http://cmis.daventrydc.gov.uk/daventry/Meetings/tabid/70/ctl/ViewMeetingPublic/mid/397/Meeting/899/Committee/2/SelectedTab/Documents/Default.aspx

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 District Council assessed each of the nominations against the following criteria which are set out in paragraph 77 of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF):
a) Where the green space is in reasonably close proximity to the community it serves
b) Where the green area is demonstrably special to a local community and holds particular significance, for example because of its beauty, historic significance, recreational value (including as a playing field) tranquility or richness of its wildlife; and
c) Where the green area concerned is local in character and is it and extensive tract of land.
The District Council is proposing the following sites within our Parish (shown on the plan) for designation as Local Green Space in the Proposed Submission Part 2 Local Plan and provides justification for their inclusion against criteria set out in the National Planning Policy Framework
Great Brington
Allotments, Back Lane
Area of land to Rear of Old and New Rectory
Orchard and Pasture,Back Lane
Kimbells Field
Little Brington
Playing Field adjacent to Primary School

 

    

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.

The consultation documents and supporting materials will be available to view from the Council’s webpages www.daventrydc.gov.uk/localplan , the Council’s Lodge Road offices and libraries at Brixworth, Daventry, Long Buckby, Moulton and Woodford Halse from the 13th August. A permanent exhibition will also be set up in the Lodge Road reception area.

During the first two weeks of September the Council will be holding four public exhibitions across the District. These are open to anyone who wishes to find out more about the Local Plan and members of the Local Strategy Team will be available to answer questions.
