IM Properties Planning application for Tiffield Lane

Posted: Fri, 23 Oct 2020 13:55 by Andrew Tennet

Dear all,

The planning application for the development at the end of Donkey/Tiffield Lane by the A43 crossing has been submitted. The reply from the Parish Council objecting to this is attached. Please read it – it is long and detailed - but it has to be!

We are hoping that you will agree with our objections to the application and let SNC and the developers know this too. It is really important that you make your views known and it is very simple to do. More »

Please write to SNC planning. Details of how to do this are in the attached 'Contacting SNC Planning'. Feel free to use any part of the attached objection letter when objecting to the application.

Remember. The deadline for submission of comments is November 6th.

The Parish Council are in the process of arranging a further meeting with IM Properties by Zoom or similar on November 4th. We will discuss the contents of this letter with IM Properties and their representatives on this date. We will let you know how this went.

Please try to help us preserve the rural nature of this area and keep the village free of traffic!!

Thanks for reading this,

Food survey for rural communities

Posted: Mon, 19 Oct 2020 11:51 by Andrew Tennet

Hi all,

Food Survey
Residents of rural Northamptonshire are being asked to share their experiences of food poverty and the availability/accessibility of food in rural areas. Northamptonshire ACRE and partners are conducting the survey as part of a wider project to highlight the issues faced by rural communities, and to provide support to the communities in need of extra support. The results of the survey will be published in a report to be published later in the year. The survey is at https://forms.gle/2YeoatXmxFxxQ8vM6. The closing date for responses is 2 November 2020.

IM Properties submit application plans for Tiffield Lane

Posted: Thu, 15 Oct 2020 12:39 by Andrew Tennet

Hi all,

Important news re IM Properties Development

As some of you will be aware, the planning application from IM Properties has now been submitted to South Northamptonshire Council.

The link to the appropriate page is included below, which affords you the ability to enter any comments you may wish to make under the 'Comments' tab.

Tiffield Parish Council discussed the application at the last Parish Council meeting on the 12th October with a representative of IM Properties in attendance (via ZOOM). More »

The Parish Council are currently formulating their response and have agreed to a further discussion with the developers before the closing date for the submission of comments (6th November).

The date of the discussion with IM Properties has yet to be agreed and in line with current Government advice, the meeting will be held via an online platform, such as ZOOM.

Sadly, this will mean that it would be almost impossible to make this a public meeting and as such, if you have any matters that you would like to be put to the developers, could you forward them to me and we will look to collate the main themes which we can then include in the discussion.

Once the response for the Parish Council has been agreed, I will again post it on this platform, in the village noticeboard and on the village website.

Due to the time constraints the Parish Council are not in a position to leaflet the whole village to make everyone aware that the planning application has been submitted, so please feel free to share the details of this post with your friends and neighbours, including the link to the relevant Planning Application page as shown below.

For your information
