DDC adopts Conservation Area update for Badby

At its meeting on 18th March 2021, Daventry District Council adopted new conservation area boundaries and the conservation area appraisal for Badby.

The appraisal has been adopted as a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) and as such is a material consideration in the determination of planning decisions affecting the special interest of the conservation area.

The appraisal, adoption notice and statement of consultation will be uploaded to the Council’s website in due course. If you have any questions in the meantime, please contact

Any person with sufficient interest in the decision to adopt the SPD may apply to the High Court for permission to apply for judicial review of that decision. Any such application must be made promptly and in any event not later than six weeks after 18th March 2021.

Yours faithfully,

Rhian Morgan

West Northamptonshire Council

As you and other residents start to receive your Council Tax bills and other communications from us, you may have noticed that things are now coming from the new West Northamptonshire Council, rather than Daventry District Council. 

From 1 April, West Northamptonshire Council will replace Daventry District Council and the County Council. It will therefore be responsible for providing all public services in the area. 

We appreciate this may well cause confusion or questions, so we wanted to provide the attached leaflet to help answer any questions you may have:

If you have any further queries, please don’t hesitate to contact the new Council from
1 April on tel. 0300 126 7000 or visit These new contact details will only be active from 1 April, so please continue to Daventry District Council until then. 

Many thanks,

Emma Parry, Community Projects Officer
Tel. (01327) 302418

Badby and Farthingstone Cricket Club News – March 2021


With a new season on the horizon, Badby&Farthingstone CC are delighted to announce that they have reached agreement with Badby Parish Council on a long term lease for the cricket ground at Chapel Lane, Badby.

Club chairman Andy Nightingale said: “This is great news for the club, the village of Badby and surrounding area. It gives us the security of tenure necessary to plan our long term development and gives the council, village and local area a viable and committed sports club that welcomes everyone.

“Thanks go to everyone on both sides for their perseverance in reaching an agreement and we look forward to a long and fruitful partnership with Badby Parish Council.”

With outdoor sports restrictions being eased later this month, the club is looking forward to the start of nets sessions after an active close season. The season should start on time (Intra-club game April 11) with, depending on official ECB guidance, the first half of the season up to June 21 played under Covid safe regulations. After then the club are hoping to resume using the pavilion and providing teas.

In other news, a club survey showed that a majority of those voting were in favour of taking part in some form of league cricket in the future as well as good support for a possible tour in September. The virtual AGM also saw the addition of three new club officers (Communication, Fundraising and Community) to help the club’s development and future growth.

On the fund-raising front, captain Charlie Ashmore continues the weekly on-line sporting predictor event where club members and supporters are invited to predict the outcome of several weekend sporting events. Winning entrants collect half the week’s stakes with the rest going to club funds. It has proved to be hugely successful and open to all the local community.

As the club looks to expand into league, youth and women’s cricket alongside its regular Sunday and midweek friendlies it welcomes all new players – men, women, teenagers and children.

Membership fees are: Full £50, Playing £30, Social £20, Junior £10. Anyone interested in joining B&FCC please contact Andy via e-mail

Lateral Flow Test Centre opens at Daventry Leisure Centre

A community Lateral Flow Device testing centre has opened at Daventry Leisure Centre. 

This complements the existing provision in Northampton, Corby, Wellingborough and Brackley and offers a more local testing venue for those in Daventry and the surrounding areas.  Lateral Flow Device testing is otherwise known as rapid testing and is used in people who do not have symptoms of Covid-19.  The aim is to identify the one in three people who may be infectious without being aware, in order to reduce spread of the virus.  Rapid testing enables swift action to be taken to protect colleagues and family members of those who test positive with COVID-19 and to reduce any onward risk of transmission. 

Booking a test

The new site is open Tuesday to Saturday from 9.30am to 12pm and 1pm to 6.30pm, providing a wide variety of testing slots.  Each test involves a swab of the mouth and nose and provides a result within 30 minutes. 

Priority is given to workers in the following sectors: 

  • Health or social care
  • Transportation
  • Education or childcare (if not receiving regular rapid tests via the workplace)
  • Essential shop, supermarkets or financial services
  • Food production or processing
  • Warehousing, packing or distribution
  • Essential public sector services including waste, bin collections, security etc
  • Construction, utilities or communications
  • Agency workers.

If you follow the Zoom link at the end of this email you can enjoy your tea or coffee in the company of others, and you won’t even have to leave the warmth of your house.

We look forward to seeing you at 10.30am on Tuesday 16th March.

LATEST! Dedicated phone number for requesting a paper Census form

We have just been advised that a dedicated telephone number has been released for people who want to request a paper form: 0800 876 6276 

NO other help will be available on this number.

The general Help Line number of 0800 141 2021 remains and over 500 additional staff will be answering calls from Monday. 

Households should by now have received the Census Information Pack which explains how to complete the census. The unique access code enables people to complete the form online using any device.

If for any reason you have not received this by 15 March, you can call the Help Line on 0800 141 2021 to obtain an access code or to be sent a paper form.

How long will it take to complete the form? 

If completing the form online, allow about 10 minutes to complete the household section and around 10 minutes per person to complete the personal information.  The form doesn’t have to be completed in one go.  You can complete some information, save the form, and return to it at a later date. But the form must be completed by or on 21 March 2021. 

Who should be included in the Census form?

Everyone who lives in the household.  This includes:

• anyone who lives permanently or counts the address as their family home

• people temporarily away from home, for example students or school children boarding away

• people staying at the address temporarily if they live in the UK and have no other address

• people staying at the address temporarily from outside of the UK who are staying in the country for three months or more

There’s also a separate section to fill in for visitors – that is, anyone staying in the household overnight on Census Day, Sunday 21 March 2021.  

And don’t forget to include babies and children!

Who should fill in the Census form?

Typically, one person completes the form on behalf of everyone living in the household. 

But if there are lodgers or adult children living at home, they might prefer to complete their own personal details. If they want to do this they can call the Help Line on 0800 141 2021 and get their own access code and complete their personal details. 

And if people are house-sharing, everyone can have their own access code.

If someone isn’t able to complete their own form, a relative or someone else they trust can do it with them. There is no lower age limit for completing the form. If, for example, a young person is caring for an adult with disabilities, the young person can complete the form. 

What sort of questions are asked?

There are questions about the household as well as some personal questions. The majority of the questions are compulsory but some (for example sexual orientation and gender identity) are voluntary.  This year there is a new compulsory question which asks if a respondent has served in the armed forces. 

Do people have to complete the form?

Yes they do. It’s a legal requirement. Anyone who deliberately fails to complete the form, or deliberately gives false information, can be prosecuted and fined £1,000.  

Where can people get help?
