Have your say on West Northamptonshire Council's Gambling Policy

West Northamptonshire Council wants to hear your views on their proposed policy statement designed to prevent the use of gambling and betting premises for crime and disorder. More »

They also want to know if you are satisfied that the draft statement is robust in protecting children and younger people from harm in this environment.

Under the Gambling Act 2005, local councils regulate the provision of premises for gambling. These premises include betting shops, bingo halls and amusement arcades, the provision of gaming machines in clubs and alcohol licensed premises and small society lottery registration.

The Gambling Act 2005 makes it a duty for a local authority to review and adopt a Statement of Licensing policy every three years, this statement details how the Council will undertake its licensing functions with a view to promoting the three licensing objectives:

• Preventing gambling from being a source of crime or disorder, being associated with crime or disorder or being used to support crime

• Ensuring that gambling is conducted in a fair and open way

• Protecting children and other vulnerable persons from being harmed or exploited by gambling

A draft statement for the period 2022 - 2025 has been prepared. A copy of the draft is available Have your say on the Gambling Act 2005 - Statement of Licensing Policy 2022-2025 - West Northamptonshire Council - Citizen Space We are seeking comments on the draft and would be pleased to hear your views either via the Online Survey.

Notice of full weekend road closures update, A421, Finmere

June 2022 | www.hs2.org.uk

High Speed Two (HS2) is the new high speed railway for Britain. We are following Government and Public Health England (PHE) advice on working safely during the pandemic. The health and safety of our workforce and the communities we work within is our priority. If you have any questions about this, please contact our Helpdesk to find out more. All sites will remain under constant review. You can sign up for regular updates in your local area at www.hs2inbucksandox.co.uk. More »

What are we doing?

Throughout June, we carried out the installation of a temporary bridge over the A421. This new bridge now connects our internal road network and will help to further reduce our impact on local communities by taking some of our construction vehicles off local roads.

We have been able to complete our construction programme for the bridge installation ahead of schedule. Therefore, our final 24-7 weekend closure scheduled to take place has been reduced to a daytime closure this Saturday, where we will install the final safety barriers along the carriageway

When will these works take place?

A section of the A421 will be closed from 8.00am to 6.00pm, Saturday 25 June 2022.

Due to the nature of our works taking place during these closures, all emergency services will be required to follow the diversion route.

If you have a question about HS2 or our works, please contact our HS2 Helpdesk team on 08081 434 434 or email hs2enquiries@hs2.org.uk

About our Community and Business Funds

We are offering two funds that are available to local communities and businesses between the West Midlands and London, to help with the disruption caused by our construction work. These are the Community and Environment Fund (CEF) and the Business and Local Economy Fund (BLEF).

The CEF is designed to give communities the opportunity to share in the benefits of HS2. It is an allocated fund that communities are able to apply for, to help to support local projects that aim to improve their local area.

The BLEF is designed to support local economies that may be disrupted by the construction of HS2. BLEF grants are for local business support organisations and local authorities to help maintain business activity in local communities.

For more information about each of these funds, including how to apply, please visit: https://www.groundwork.org.uk/hs2funds » Less
