People are being invited to have their say on a planning document which will help shape the development of Badby.


A Neighbourhood Development Plan has been prepared by a steering group from the village with support from the parish council. 


It was submitted to Daventry District Council recently and is now subject to a seven-week consultation to allow people to make comments on it.


The plan includes policies to protect Badby’s landscape setting and views, heritage, community facilities and green spaces. It contains plans to meet local housing needs, improve recreation facilities and support new business ventures.  


People can view the draft Neighbourhood Development Plan for Badby at www.daventrydc.gov.uk/neighbourhoodplanning  


It can also be viewed at DDC’s offices, in Lodge Road, Daventry, NN11 4FP, and at two venues in Badby: The Maltsters pub, in The Green (NN11 3AF) and St Mary’s Church, Church Hill (NN11 3AR).


The consultation was launched on Monday 9 April and will close at 4.30pm on Friday 25 May 2018. Any comments made during the period will be passed to the independent examiner appointed to inspect the plan.


Following the consultation and examination process, if the results are positive, parishioners will be asked in a referendum whether they support the proposed Neighbourhood Development Plan. The plan must receive support from more than half of those voting for it to be ‘made’ by DDC.


If made it will form part of the wider development plan for Daventry District up to 2029 and will be used to help decide planning applications in the Badby neighbourhood area.
