NEWS: Community Governance Review

Wed, 19 Sep 2018 17:05 by Amy Simpson

On Monday 17th September 2018, Daventry District Council (DDC) launched a consultation in respect of its Community Governance Review. This is the process that allows Councils to make changes to parishes, such as boundaries and the number of councillors.

Daventry Town Council has requested the following changes to be made to the town:-

  1. DTC has requested that consideration be given to changing its boundaries so that all of the significant planned development that is proposed around Daventry Town would be incorporated within the town council's boundary. The justification for this request is that developments are effectively extensions of Daventry Town and, as such, should be incorporated within their boundary.
  2. DTC has requested that consideration be given to altering the boundaries of the Town Council wards, reducing the current seven wards to four. The justification for this request is to address the imbalance in the ratio of electors to councillors and for the ward boundaries to mirror those of DDC.
  3. DTC has proposed a reduction in the number of councillors in line with the proposal to restructure ward boundaries. This would establish four councillors per ward, reducing the overall number of councillors from 17 to 16.

Full details of the proposals are in the attached document below. More »

Town residents have until 16th November 2018 to comment on the proposed changes.

Please see below for details of the Council's reponses to the major applications received for comment:

The Grange DA/2018/0701 for a Demolition of existing care home. Construction of 33 dwellings.

No representations were received from residents, therefore members of the committee voiced their views on this planning application and concluded that although supportive of development, they recorded an objection to the application as they considered the proposed number of dwellings to be overdevelopment, together with concerns in relation to the road layout providing suitable access and egress for emergency and service vehicles.

No representations were received from residents, therefore members of the committee voiced their views on this planning application and concluded that this application be deferred, as relevant detail on site location and elevations were not available and therefore insufficient information for the Council to make an informed decision. Officer to aske DDC LPA for copies of the elevations and request an extension to the consultation period.

Highways – Double Yellows. No representations were received from residents, therefore members of the committee voiced their views on this planning application and concluded that to support this proposal would set a precedent and would require double yellows to be painted on all T-junctions, which on referral to Highway Code Rule 243 (opposite or within 10 metres (32 feet) of a junction, except in an authorised parking space) and lack of resources from relevant authority to police the restriction, they agreed not to support this proposal.
