The Local issues of HGV’s breaching the restricted zone has previously been identified and progressed. Actions completed are as follows.

  • Issue raised at the Road Jag (multi agency approach to tackling road issues within the LPA)
  • Monitoring by Brixworth team 1 -2 hours a week

A New NPT model will be introduced on the 1st of June. This will see an uplift in staffing to the NPT, including student Officers being tutored within NPT. Currently there are 3 PCSO at Brixworth, Jo Wright, Kev Lumbis & Paul Miller. We will be recruiting 2 PC’s into positions here. In addition I will be returning to Brixworth for half the week (the other half I will be at Daventry) . The team will cover Brixworth ED and Moulton ED- please see below

New Force priorities have been identified and are as follows. Click here for more detail

  • ASB

Questions..

 20mph application

Quote from Matt Phillips Sgt on Safer Roads team.

“Daventry NPT do not sit on the Speed Limit review panel. The last time Holcot brought this application, it was unanimously rejected by all members, this was also turned down by the highways manager for NCC at the subsequent appeal.  Northamptonshire Police’s support is not required for Northamptonshire Highways to alter speed limits. There has never been an intimation that the restrictions are or would be un-enforceable. However, we will not routinely enforce restrictions which do not match the look and feel of the environment. There are sadly a number of roads throughout the County where this is the case and I would give the A43 Moulton bypass as a prime example of that.”

A43 : Roadworks

Work to install 6km of new water pipes commences on 4 May and is expected to finish by the end of October 2021.

This will necessitate a 30mph zone on the A43 and footpath closures.

The location of the works is shown below. The full letter from Anglian Water is here.

Anyone for tennis?

Help offered : Supporting Independence

A message from Fatma at Public Health Northamptonshire.


My name is Fatma and I work as part of Public Health Northamptonshire for the Supporting Independence Programme. Now, more than ever, services across the community are working together to support those most affected by COVID. Our aim is to support and enable people to maintain their independence and resilience for as long as possible. We are keen to work in partnership with local parishes to promote our service to the wider community, in order to support vulnerable adults to improve and maintain their independence and wellbeing.

Our service can be tailored to support anybody in the county, over the age of 18, who may be struggling with one or several areas of their life, leading to mild frailty or reduced independence. We are currently operating as a telephone service, offering 12 weeks of person-centred support with a trained Wellbeing Advisor. Advisors have a wealth of knowledge and contacts for community services, charities and organisations across the county, working in partnership to achieve a positive outcome for customers. Referrals are dependent on successful completion of the eligibility criteria, which are just a few quick questions included within the referral form. Our administrator will then contact the customer within 2 working days to arrange an initial appointment with an allocated advisor. Examples of areas we support with include:

·         Social isolation

·         Falls

·         Lifestyle

·         Medication

·         Mental and emotional health

·         Physical health and mobility
