Join the BIG CONVERSATION and have your say on how to make West Northants thrive!
Town and parish communities across West Northampton are encouraged to get involved in the biggest conversation yet about shaping local services and improving their area.
On Monday (28 February) West Northamptonshire Council launched the Thrive West Northants Big Conversation – an online forum where residents and businesses can have their say on anything and everything to help develop future plans on a range of topics, including making the area more sustainable place to live and work.
The conversation forum, which is totally anonymous will be open 24/7 for the next three weeks. It will enable people to comment, discuss and suggest ideas about what things the council should be doing and prioritising to help make West Northants a great place to live, work, visit and thrive.
Residents are encouraged to give their views on a range of topics, from tackling climate change and improving the local economy to caring for the young, elderly and vulnerable. People can add their comments or ideas onto the online forum from their phone, tablet, or computer which will later be analysed and fed back to the Council to help shape its future plans. Those residents unable to access the internet at home or on their own devices can join in the conversation by visiting their local library.

The conversation runs until 21 March when the comments will then be analysed. The age limit is 16 for registering but residents are encouraged to hold sessions with young people to get their views and then upload them onto the system.
Councillor Jonathan Nunn, Leader of West Northamptonshire Council, said: "We want West Northants to be a place where everyone can thrive, but we can only do this by working together and listening to local people, enabling us to make the changes that residents want to see. We welcome all comments and ideas as part of our Big Conversation, whether they are innovative, controversial or critical, it's important that people are honest with us.
