North Northamptonshire Council (NNC) is inviting residents and stakeholders to submit views on the Barnwell Neighbourhood Plan.

A public consultation for the Plan launches on Monday 21 March, running for 6 weeks, and is inviting formal representations on the Regulation 16 draft of this Plan.

The Neighbourhood Plan for Barnwell will be a key document in the determination of planning applications within the District. It provides local detail to support the strategic policies of the North Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy 2011-2031 and the emerging Local Plan Part 2.

The Neighbourhood Plan, supporting documents and details of how to respond are available on the Barnwell Neighbourhood Plan page.

It is important that local, rural communities across North Northamptonshire help shape where they live as they have a keen understanding of their area.

With this in mind, I would encourage residents to come forward and have their say to help the Barnwell community and us to shape the Plan.
Cllr David Brackenbury, the council’s Executive Member for Growth and Regeneration
As a council, we value the opinions of our residents on a variety of matters, including development across the district. We actively support involvement from all communities to make sure they take up every opportunity to express their thoughts and concerns on development in their area.Cllr Jason Smithers, Leader of NNC

The Public Consultation will run until Tuesday 3 May 2022.

Hard copies of the submission documents will be available to view at:
Libraries at Oundle, Thrapston, Rushden, Irthlingborough and Raunds during normal opening hours and at the Customer Service Centres at:

  • Cedar Drive, Thrapston, NN14 4LZ
