The official count of those who attended the Parish Plan exhibition in the Church Rooms on Friday and Saturday, 2nd and 3rd December was 222. Those who attended generally stayed quite a long time looking at the various display boards, writing out their comments and getting in discussion with members of the drafting team and others. At a rough guess, the average time spent would have been about three quarters of an hour with a few staying much longer. It was pleasing that those attending also included some who, through their companies have expressed an interest in developing various parcels of land. More »
While the exhibition has now closed it is still possible to view the Parish Plan and Design Statement on this website and to make comments on line up to the end of December.
It is anticipated that the Parish Plan and the responses received in writing and on line will be discussed at the Jannuary meeting of the Parish Council and, if the draft is approved by that Council, will be presented to South Northamptonshire Council for a decision on its adoption. If so adopted, the contents of the Plan and Design Statement should be taken into account when considering future planning applications.
Discussion and formal consideration of an expected proposal to develop the Plan further, to convert the work already done into a full Neighbourhood Plan is likely to wait until after the open information meeting for Silverstone Parish Councillors and residents at the Forum on 17th January.

A presentation for Silverstone residents on 'Parish and Neighbourhood Plans' has been organised at South Northamptonshire Council's The Forum, Moat Lane, Towcester. This will take place in the Council Chamber from 18.00 – 19.30 on Tuesday January 17th 2017.
Andy D'Arcy, who is Lead Officer Planning Policy for SNC, will make the presentation to explain exactly what the two plans cover, clarify the differences between the two and describe the processes involved in producing them. This is the presentation I promised to organise at the last Parish Council meeting, and I hope it will clear up the misconceptions that seem to exist around these matters. More »
If you plan to attend please let me know at Dermot.firstname.lastname@example.org so we know how many to expect. I hope to see you there. » Less

Northamptonshire County Council is planning for the future of the existing sires of the Junior and Infant schools in the village and has appointed consultants to consider the options.
An informal information meeting was held with available Parish Councillors last month. At this, those present were informed that the initial idea is that NCC is wanting to retain the two original buildings (not the newer extensions) and to incorporate these into small housing developments of five dwellings. The County Council would not itself develop the sites but, if planning permission along these lines were to be granted, would then seek to sell them on with that permission to an independent developer.

Any application for planning permission by NCC would rely on the existing access to the two sites being maintained.
The Parish Council as a whole has not yet discussed the proposition so does not have a formal view about NCC's ideas. » Less
