Cllr Karen Cooper, SNC's portfolio holder for community engagement and wellbeing, said: "We recognise that, for busy parents, online bookings and smartphone applications can be more convenient than phone calls, so we are pleased to be delivering this new service.

"The activity hubs programme is a great solution for people who may be out working while their children are enjoying the school holidays and we are pleased that they will now be able to book places swiftly and easily, day or night.

"Our team has been hard at work setting up a fantastic and varied programme of sports, game and activities, and we hope that lots of kids will enjoy being part of the hubs' friendly and supportive atmosphere."

The online bookings are being facilitated through the Eventbrite website and smartphone application. It will show day-by-day availability in real time, and allow people to reserve spots up until 7am on the day of the event, which is expected to benefit parents looking for last-minute childcare arrangements.

The new booking system will also allow people to search for events by location. The hubs will take place at Caroline Chisholm School, Wootton Fields, Northampton and at Magdalen College School in Brackley.

Full day sessions, from 8.45am to 5pm, cost £18.95 while the shorter session, 8.45am to 3pm, costs £14.95.

Places are limited and must be booked in advance on a first-come-first-served basis.

The activities are open to girls and boys aged five to 15 years old and are split into two age groups, five to seven-year-olds and over-eights.

Positive progress for Silverstone Parish Plan and Design Statement

Silverstone residents are another step closer to having more of a say in the future of their community following the adoption of a parish plan and design statement.

At a meeting of South Northamptonshire Council's (SNC) Planning Policy and Regeneration Strategy Committee on Wednesday, 14 June, members met to consider the Silverstone Parish Plan and Design Statement and whether to adopt it as a supplementary document (SPD). More »

The purpose of a parish plan and design statement is to inform what is important to the community and identify priority areas and actions for the next five to 10 years, as well as how the parish might be protected and enhanced to retain its character.

Cllr Roger Clarke, SNC's portfolio holder for planning, said: "Protecting the district is one of our core objectives at SNC. So it's important that we empower local people to make a difference where they can and ensure they have a say in the future of their community, for them and for generations to come.

"The Silverstone Parish Plan and Design Statement is a great example of localism at work and paves the way for more communities to do the same."

The Silverstone Parish Plan and Design Statement has been five years in the making and has been produced in conjunction with Silverstone Parish Council. Much of it is based on a questionnaire carried out in 2012 by the parish council.

In addition to this, a consultation took place using the Silverstone village website as well as a public exhibition held in December 2016. The parish council also consulted public and regulatory bodies over a period of six weeks on the draft document. » Less
