Residents asked to have their say on housing delivery
People struggling to find the right housing in South Northamptonshire are among those being urged to take part in a housing consultation which starts this month. More »
South Northamptonshire Council (SNC) is currently updating its Housing Strategy which will define what the Housing Service will deliver over the next three years.
Consultation on the draft strategy will take place between Thursday, 18 April and Wednesday, 15 May 2019 and can be completed online at www.southnorthants.gov.uk/HousingStrategyConsultation
Hard copies are also available from The Forum in Towcester, town halls, Brackley Town Council office, and South Northants libraries.
Jane Carr, SNC's Executive Director Operations, said: "Lower than average crime, lower than average unemployment, higher than average academic achievement and being in a strategic location for business means there is a great deal of pressure for new homes in South Northants.
"But if we want to retain those aspects of the district which make us so proud, we cannot forget the fundamentals.
"We need an approach to housing which is prepared to meet the needs of all types of households and lifestyles and is ready to adapt to a rapidly changing society. It is something the Council has responsibility for and we need your input to get it right."
Three priorities identified in the draft strategy are: building homes that people need and can afford to live in; enabling people to live settled lives, ie: homes can be adapted for the changing needs of individuals and families, and developing strong partnerships to provide housing services that meet residents' needs.
Specific goals include: despite higher than average incomes, homes in South Northants are less affordable than other areas, combating fuel poverty, and maximising the benefits of the coming unitary authority by establishing a joined up approach with partner agencies in health and social care. » Less

Operations Manager Required
Salary scale 33-36 (£35,934 – £39,813), Full Time (37 hrs per week)
Brackley is a vibrant and growing town, on the border of South Northamptonshire, with services expanding to meet that growth. The impending changes to the local government structure within the county also present new and exciting challenges. The Town Council currently owns and manages the recently refurbished Grade II*Listed Town Hall, the Old Fire Station and will shortly add to its portfolio a brand new purpose built community and arts facility. It is also responsible for large areas of open space and a cemetery, maintained by an in-house team of grounds staff. New areas of land are due to be handed over in 2019 with s106 contributions to support the additional workload. More »
The Operations Manager will have responsibility for the delivery of services by the Town Council covering a range of areas, managing a group of employees working in facilities, green spaces, tourism and events. Given the size of the team, the Operations Manager is a senior role within the staffing structure, reporting to the Town Clerk as the Proper Officer and Responsible Financial Officer, and is expected to be public-facing and to deal professionally and appropriately with residents.
They will bring knowledge and experience of managing people, as well as some outsourced services.
They will provide advice and support to the Town Clerk and to elected Councillors (where appropriate) to maintain and improve services within the town, and to promote the best interests of the town in line with a public-service ethos.
