CYCLING & WALKWAYS IN NORTHAMPTONSHIRE

“We want to hear your ideas on how we can make Northamptonshire a better place for walking and cycling while maintaining social distancing.

If you’ve got a great idea, we want to hear from you! You might have a suggestion on how we can improve our current cycling routes, walkways and roads to make them more cyclist and pedestrian friendly or you may have an idea about how we can better utilise other parts of our road and footway network to create quieter streets and enhance cycling and walking opportunities.

Have your say

You can share your ideas and find out more about the project via our Commonplace interactive map. The easy to use tool allows you to pinpoint where in the county your suggestion relates to, and to identify why you have dropped a pin in that area and the measures that could be introduced to help promote safe social distancing, cycling and walking.”

Small business grants

Small businesses urged to apply for coronavirus support funding

Small businesses in Daventry District are encouraged to apply for grants of up to £10,000 in the latest round of Government funding aimed at easing the impact of Covid-19.

Daventry District Council (DDC) is inviting small businesses that were not eligible for the Government’s other coronavirus support schemes to make applications to the new Discretionary Grant Fund.

The funding is aimed at businesses with under 50 employees that have seen a significant drop in income due to coronavirus, such as those in shared offices or other flexible workspaces, bed and breakfasts which pay Council Tax instead of Business Rates, some eligible charity properties and those who spend less than £51,000 a year renting or mortgaging a property.

The deadline for applications to the Council is the end of Sunday, 14 June 2020 and businesses can check the eligibility criteria and apply online via the DDC website at https://www.daventrydc.gov.uk/your-council/news/advice-on-coronavirus/businesses/discretionary-grant-fund/

DDC has already distributed £13.41m of Government funding to 1,138 local businesses during the coronavirus pandemic – including grants for retail, hospitality and leisure businesses, plus a series of small business rate relief grants.

Councillor Colin Morgan, Resource Portfolio Holder at Daventry District Council said: “Our staff have been working hard to ensure that local businesses receive the Government funding support that they are entitled to during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

“The Discretionary Grant Fund is aimed at those small businesses struggling significantly during these difficult times that aren’t eligible for the other government grant support schemes. I would urge any small local businesses who think they may qualify to visit our website to check the criteria and then apply online.”
