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.”

Yelvertoft Solar Farm

As some of you may know a planning application has recently been submitted for a 200 acre Solar Farm on fields 700m from the village on the Crick Road.

The Parish Council wants to hear your views on this development before we respond on your behalf to Daventry District Council which will decide the application in early June.

We have decided to conduct a simple survey to find out residents’ views. Given the very tight timescales of consulting on this during lockdown we have needed to use an online survey tool. You can take the survey at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/3V283HK

The Parish Council will then discuss these ,and other responses, at a planning meeting of the Parish Council at 7.30pm on 1st June.

Please do have your say. This is a major development. The feedback request will be publicised to residents via this website, Facebook, and a flyer to each household. 

Click Yelvertoft Solar Farm application to view the application.

Click here to view the flood report: Flood report

  • The Solar Farm is being developed by Lightrock Power www.yelvertoftsolarfarm.co.uk
  • The thousands of solar panels will fill 200 acres of open farmland and will each be almost 3m tall and 4m long .
  • The developer acknowledges the flooding threat to Yelvertoft and says that the flood measures they will put in place will not increase the risk of flooding. (see Flood_Risk_Assessment_&_Drainage_Strategy_FINAL.pdf contained within the application.)
  • You can view the planning application at the web address above.
  • The developer has stated that it will generate 49MW of electricity.
  • Construction traffic will come through Lilbourne and Yelvertoft from the A5/M1.
  • Planning permission, if granted, will be for a period of 40 years.
  • Unlike the Wind Farm, there is no obligation for the developer to make a financial contribution to the local community (or offer cheaper electricity or domestic solar panels to village residents.)
  • You can respond directly to DDC by emailing: or writing to Development Control, DDC, Lodge Way, Daventry, NN11 4FP

 

Anglian Water Priority Register – Support for residents

Anglian Water (AW) have asked that we advertise the fact that some residents, including those people who are self-isolating due to Coronavirus can register for free, additional practical support from AW’s Priority Services.

Some of the ways being on the Priority Services Register could help include help with reading the water meter, a knock and wait service where AW will wait longer for the door to be answered when visiting, and a scheme to protect people from bogus callers and scams.

Registration is quick and easy!

To find out more about Priority Services and to sign up call Anglian Water on: 0800 919 155 or visit http://www.anglianwater.co.uk/help-and-advice/extra-support/priority-services/.

Alongside Anglian Water, other Water and Energy providers offer a Priority Service. If you think you may need extra help during an interruption to supply or a power cut due to being medically dependent on electricity, elderly or disabled or if you have specific communication needs, contact your provider to find out how they can assist you.
