People in North Northamptonshire have the opportunity to help shape the long-term development of the area as part of a newly launched Government consultation. North Northants sits in the wider Oxford-Cambridge Arc, the name given to the area identified by Government as one of its key priorities for sustainable economic growth.

The consultation focuses on what has been called the Arc’s spatial framework – or blueprint for how this growth could take place up until 2050. This consultation is the first of three that will guide the framework over the next two years, and a digital platform has been created that will make it quick and accessible for people who live, work, and have an interest in the area to make their voices heard.

Comments received in the consultation will help create the vision for the area and will help guide local planning and investment decisions in four areas: The digital consultation will run for 12 weeks.

The Arc region has the potential to drive significant growth locally and nationally so it’s essential that we seize this opportunity to maximise the possibilities and that North Northants spearheads this change. This consultation will measure the opinions of a cross section of people in the area to see what’s important to them and what sort of future they would like to see for our region.

Leader of NNC, Jason Smithers sid "I would encourage everyone to have their say as it’s essential that we attract the right growth to our area, combined with the proper infrastructure to make it happen. Not only are we being asked to feedback on how we can boost the economy and the prosperity that would bring but also on how we connect communities and how they are shaped. Underpinning all of this is how we do this in an environmentally sustainable way so that we can preserve the unique character of North Northants and maximise the benefits for residents and businesses.
