12 November 2021WNC Strategic Plan Consultation

The West Northants Council Consultation Document asks for your views on

1,500 to 5,000 houses to be built as a new settlement to the south of Long Buckby.

In reality it will make Long Buckby four times as big!!!

Respond at: https://westnorthantsplan.inconsult.uk/WNSPOptions/consultationHome;

email: strategic plan@westnorthants.gov.uk

write to: Strategic Plan, West Northamptonshire Council,

The Guildhall, Northampton NN11DE

 

Some of the reasons for objections which can be adapted to use in your response:

1 This proposal for LB is not a new settlement, merely an urban extension

2 The road network to the A5 having to cross M1/Rail/Canal is not suitable

3 The edge of the proposal butts onto Flood Zone 3

4 The historic centre of Long Buckby is a conservation area and the scale of proposal will have an adverse impact

5 The already congested roads in the middle of village would be unable to cope; houses are cracking, the drainage and pipework are crumbling.

6 If allowed, Long Buckby would have almost 7,000 houses and become a small town. This is a quadrupling of the current size.

7 The presence of the outdated Railway Station does not justify this level of expansion – service level is very poor at this station.

8 Why does WNC not consider creating a large number of the 30,000 houses in one completely new settlement along the lines of Mawsley in the north?

9 The already agreed NE extension of Daventry will come almost to the A5.

With this proposal Long Buckby will be nearly joined to Daventry.
