Building Stronger Communities Strategy – Residents’ Consultation

Dear Town and Parish Councils

Thanks you for your previous input to the development of our draft Building Stronger Communities Strategy. We developed the priorities with a broad range of partner organisations, including Elected Representatives, community groups and organisations and further revised them to address issues that have become more prominent through lockdown.

We want to develop an action plan with members of the public, service users and community groups for specific projects and initiatives and welcome your suggestions to help shape how we deliver this strategy to meet local needs. Partner agencies have already input to this, but we would appreciate your help in promoting our action plan survey to your residents. The survey is available on our website:

There are a number of sections to the strategy under four main themes.  Residents can comment on the specific areas they are interested in.

We are a large, rural district, which despite being generally affluent, has hidden poverty and disadvantage and specific local challenges, such as isolation and connectivity.  Our strategy outlines priority areas to increase community resilience and to positively shape the future of the residents of South Northants as we move to the new West Northants Council.

Thank you for your assistance.

Best wishes
