New Local Government Reorganisation Web Sites Launched

Two new web sites, one for West Northamptonshire and one for North Northamptonshire, have been launched to carry news about the Local Government Reorganisation (LGR) programme.  The web sites are at and  The sites describe the process so far, who is involved, progress from public meetings, and news including details of the upcoming shadow authority elections.  There is understandably a great deal of speculation about the move toward unitary governance and these two sites offer the most reliable means of keeping up to date and ensuring you are aware of the facts.

HGV Traffic

Instances of vehicles clearly exceeding 7.5 tons using our village as a short cut are on the increase, with two names cropping up very frequently. Palletways and PC Howard have both been contacted with information also being passed on to the Police and the Traffic Commissioners. Obviously, some of these lorries are legally travelling into the village to drop off and pick up goods. There’s frequent deliveries to the shop and grain lorries will soon be collecting from farms amongst others.

If you see what is obviously an HGV over 7.5tons and they appear to be using our village as a short cut please do report it to us by emailing including time and date and preferably  photos showing the vehicle and registration plate.
