Prioritisation Framework Consultation and Engagement
Northamptonshire County Council is putting a process in place to help make the tough decisions it has to make about what to prioritise – that is, how we share out resources to achieve the best outcomes for our residents and customers. To do this we need to be clearer what we, our residents and partners think is important to bear in mind when deciding between competing priorities. We need your help to clarify our values and principles and use these to develop the framework we will use for prioritising. You can help us in two ways – by completing a survey and/or attending a workshop More »
1. You can find our survey on the County Council website - https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/Prioritisation_Stage2

News from South Northamptonshire Council:
The dream of replacing Brackley's much loved, but out of date Cottage Hospital, came a giant step closer this month after a full planning application for a new medical centre was submitted to South Northamptonshire Council (SNC). More »
In 2014 SNC approved a hybrid planning application for the Network 401 development at the northern entrance to the town which included: a food store, petrol station, medical centre, care home, a large employment space and a hotel with a restaurant and bar.
At the time full permission was granted for the food store and petrol station, while the other elements were granted outline approval with details to be agreed.
Detailed proposals have now been submitted by Dudley Taylor Pharmacies for a three storey medical centre that will replace the intermediate care beds at the Brackley Cottage Hospital in Pebble Lane, and act as a combined replacement for the Brackley Medical Centre and Washington House Surgery.
Cllr Roger Clarke, SNC's portfolio holder for planning and environment said: "While many local health facilities are under pressure, Brackley's facilities are being improved thanks to efforts by this council to ensure housing developers contribute towards the infrastructure within the areas they build.
"At times this may have seemed an impossible dream for the many dedicated people in Brackley who campaigned for this improvement to the town. They can now see the final hurdle. I would urge those who care about Brackley to comment on these proposals ahead of a decision by the SNC planning committee."
The medical centre will also include a minor injuries treatment service, x-ray facilities, a pharmacy and a café.
Dudley Taylor Pharmacies have also submitted a second application for a 62 bedroom care home.
To view the planning applications and to make a comment visit - http://snc.planning-register.co.uk/.
Search for application references: S/2017/0202/MAF for the medical facility and S/2017/0294/MAF for the care home.
Comments on the medical centre should be made by 23 February 2017. » Less
