Communication received from NCC Highways - A422 bridgeworks

Posted: Thu, 29 Nov 2018 13:42 by Stephanie Campbell

Work is progressing well on the repairs to the bridge and we are on schedule to complete prior to Christmas. The works started on Monday November 19 and are on a four week programme. The pre-fabricated unit has arrived on site and will be installed from Monday 3rd December. More »

During the closure we have been inspecting and monitoring the local roads as, despite the official diversion in place, we understand some drivers are using local roads. We cannot force traffic to use the diversion and people do make their own choices. Safety defects have been and will continue to be repaired.

We have secured funding to carry out extensive patching works on the Cockley Road. This will be next year and I will update with dates and information once I am able to. The works will be carried out under temporary closures as we are unable to let traffic use the route during works to ensure safety of all road users and our workforce.

We are also carrying out patching works along the A422, within the closure, in preparation for surface dressing season in 2019/20. Once this programme is agreed information will be publicised.

I would also like to take this opportunity to explain the Gigaclear works that have been taking place on the B4525. This is part of the Northamptonshire County Council roll out of Superfast Broadband and road space was booked many months ago, before the emergency closure on the A422. They are working to very tight deadlines in each area and to meet these we did need to allow for this work to take place. They are due to finish tomorrow (Friday Nov 30).

Please feel free to share this and encourage people to join the mailing list by just emailing me -

Information is also on this factsheet on the Northamptonshire County Council website. Factsheet

Kind regards.

Draft Budget for Consultation

Draft Budget for Consultation

Posted: Wed, 28 Nov 2018 10:50 by Linda Carter

The Town Council has been discussing its budget for 2019-20 and would like to hear your views before finalising it. Next year we expect that many of the parks and open spaces on the new developments will be handed over to the Council, which means that we will need additional equipment and staff for the work. The costs of this will be met by contributions from the developers (Section 106 payments) and you will see on the draft budget that we have allowed for these contributions. There is also uncertainty regarding Northamptonshire County Council and what services we might be expected to take over (the Town Council has already agreed to adopt some of the grit bins). So, another difficult year for budgeting, but we have tried to build in some flexibility and would like to hear your views. Please respond by Monday 10th December 2018, so that comments can be considered at the Finance & Policy Committee meeting on Monday 17th December, before the Council sets its final budget. More »

Daventry & South Northants Neighbourhood Team Policing Priorities Survey

Posted: Thu, 22 Nov 2018 10:23 by Stephanie Campbell

Daventry and South Northants Neighbourhood Team are asking residents and business owners to complete a Policing Priorities survey to find out people's biggest fears.

In the past the priorities that have been selected have been the likes of Speeding, Parking and littering due to the low volume of people responding with only minor concerns. We need people to tell us if they fear burglary, car crime etc in order for the force to direct resources to the areas of most concern. If people don't step up and express their biggest fears then there will be a natural assumption that there are few issues. More »

- HAVE YOUR SAY - please complete a Policing priorities survey via this link; … -
Tell us your biggest fears relating to crime & anti-social behaviour so
that Police resources can be directed to the issues that matter most to you."
