Public Consultation on our Draft Summary Corporate Plan Consultation

The consultation on a high-level summary of the Corporate Plan provides an opportunity for everyone to get involved and help shape the future of the local area and public services provided.  The views of town and parish councils are really important to the Council and I would be delighted if you could take part in our survey.

The discussion about the new Council’s vision and values began last year at the shadow authority.  We have been keen to build on this good work already carried out.

Although not a statutory requirement, a public consultation is considered good practice. The closing date for responses is midnight, 3rd October 2021. 

A summary of the proposed plan along with an online survey is now available on our consultation hub at https://northnorthants.citizenspace.com/corporate-plan/2021-25-consultation

A paper version will be available on request and will soon also be in our customer service centres and in all North Northamptonshire libraries.

Please note that all town and parish councillors are very welcome to complete the survey and collective responses can also be made.

All feedback received will be reviewed and a final version of the Corporate Plan along with a summary of the feedback will be considered by the Executive in October.  The Corporate Plan will then be presented to Council in December 2021 for consideration for formal adoption.

Last, and by no means least, I would really appreciate it if you could help spread the word about the consultation in your local communities. Everyone is welcome to take part and have their say.

Warmest regards

East Northants Council launches new way to report fly tipping

Having seen how successful the What3Words app has been across the world, East Northamptonshire Council (ENC) is now encouraging anyone who wishes to report fly tipping across the district to use the app.

What3Words works using the principle that every 3m x 3m square of the world has been assigned an address of three words. For example one 3m x 3m square at East Northamptonshire Council’s Cedar Drive office can be identified more precisely as ‘Corded.Clean.Eased’ as opposed to ENC’s postcode of NN14 4LZ which covers a larger area.

It is hoped that by encouraging residents to download the app, fly tipping can be reported more precisely. This will allow it be located more quickly and dealt with by Council officers, especially in more rural areas of the district where a postcode typically cover a much wider area.

Anyone wishing to report fly tipping should download the What3Words app to pinpoint the three words unique to that location. The three words will then need to be pasted into the relevant box when reporting fly tipping via the ENC website.
