Consultation on the draft Northants All Age Autism Strategy

​Northamptonshire County Council, Corby CCG and Nene CCG are consulting on a draft Northamptonshire All Age Autism Strategy, which has been written by a mixed group of people in a steering group that included autistic people and family members and carers.

It says how different local organisations in Northamptonshire will work together to support autistic people of all ages in a much better way throughout their lives. We would like to know your views on the vision and priorities that have been identified to make things better for autistic people in Northamptonshire.

Please visit our website for further information.

Neighbourhood Plan

The Draft Plan is now available to read and discuss, and in due course a feedback form will be posted on this website for you to comment on the provisions of the plan.

Ashton Parish Council South Northamptonshire

Neighbourhood Plan


The Localism Act of November 2011 sets out a ‘series of measures with the potential to achieve a substantial and lasting shift in power away from central government towards local people’. Included in these measures are reforms to make the planning system more democratic and more effective, and these reforms ensure that decisions about housing are taken locally. Instead of local people being told what to do, the Government thinks that local communities should have genuine opportunities to influence the future of theplaces where they live. The Act introduces a new right for communities to draw up a Neighbourhood Plan.


The message from South Northamptonshire Council is that it would be in the best interests of the Parish to have their views on how they want their local area to be shaped in the future incorporated into the District Council’s ‘Local Plan’ or their own ‘Neighbourhood Plan’. These two documents are the official policies which must legally be consulted in any future planning application in our Parish. It would give parishioners an opportunity to have their say. It would set out what Parishioners want for their village in the future, how they would like it to develop and how they could protect it from detrimental- and overdevelopment.


Following advice from South Northamptonshire Council, Ashton Parish Council have decided to develop this research which will be fed into consultations for the new Local Plan currently being written. This research will form the basis of a Neighbourhood Plan should the Parish wish to progress to this later. An essential stage in this process is to ask you, the community of Ashton Parish, for your views - this will be done through an initial questionnaire, and then through subsequent consultation exercises (see below).
