West Northamptonshire Strategic Plan Consultation
West Northamptonshire Council is preparing a new Strategic Plan for the area. This will replace the West Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy and will cover the period up to 2050.
The Options Consultation is the second stage in preparing the new Plan [after the Issues Consultation], no decisions have been made yet and the purpose of the document is to seek views on a Vision, Spatial Objectives and Development Options at this stage.
We have produced a Spatial Options Consultation document which includes a series of questions on which we would like your views. There is also an additional opportunity to put forward ideas for potential development sites through a further 'call for sites' exercise.

WNC Bus Service Improvement Plan
North Northamptonshire Council and West Northamptonshire Council have both committed to develop a Bus Service Improvement Plan and form an Enhanced Partnership with local bus operators to implement improvements in their bus networks in line with the Government's National Bus Strategy "Bus Back Better".
To help with this work, WNC are seeking your views on the improvements you would like to see in local bus services by answering the survey below.
This is your opportunity to give feedback on bus services and connectivity in West and North Northants and help shape future plans for services across the county. The information you provide will be collated and analysed to identify issues and needs of residents in relation to public transport.
Oxford-Cambridge Arc Consultation
In February 2021, the Government published a policy paper that set out how it intends to develop a Spatial Framework to help it realise its ambition to support sustainable economic growth in the Oxford-Cambridge Arc - the area that spans the five ceremonial counties of Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire and Cambridgeshire.
The consultation document, 'Creating a Vision for the Oxford-Cambridge Arc', sets out the government's first public consultation on the Oxford-Cambridge Arc Spatial Framework. The Government is seeking views to help create a vision for the Oxford-Cambridge Arc Spatial Framework, and in doing so guide the future growth of the area to 2050.
To ensure sustainability is embedded in the Spatial Framework the Government is producing a Sustainability Appraisal. As it is also seeking views on the initial work that has been done to set the scope of the Sustainability Appraisal, a Scoping Report has been prepared as part of this consultation.
The Government is consulting on both documents. To respond to the consultation, you can share your views on our digital engagement platform.
This consultation closes at 11:45pm on 12 October 2021
