A parish that retains, enhances and protects its unique character in a managed and sustainable way, meeting the present and future needs and wishes of all ages who live and work in it.
Following a sccessful referendum result on 24th January 2019 the Neighbourhood Plan for Badby was made and now forms part of the Development Plan for Daventry District Council.
A neighbourhood plan is:
- a document that sets out planning policies for the neighbourhood area. Planning policies are used to decide whether to approve planning applications
- written by the local community, the people who know and love the area, rather than the Local Planning Authority
- a powerful tool to ensure that the commnuity gets the right types of development, in the right place.
- an important document with real legal force, therefore there are certain formal procedures that it must go through.
A group of local parishioners have agreed to write a plan for the benefit of the community and all the parishioners were consulted and views sought at all stages of the plan. The group were encouraged by Badby Parish Council and progress was monitored and reported on at monthly Badby Parish Council meetings.
After many consultations with parishioners and examinations by independent bodies a referendum relating to the Badby Parish Neighbourhood Plan was held on Thursday 24th January 2019.
The question asked was “Do you want Daventry District Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan For Badby to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?”
The declaration of results was 90.2% voted Yes and 9.3% voted No. There was a 43.1% turnout
