New bus service X91 and extension to bus service 88

New service X91 and extension to service 88

From Monday 6th November, 2017

These new services are being funded by new housing in Brackley, Silverstone and Towcester and are therefore designed to be fast and frequent, directly serving these sites and running on direct routes to their destinations.

Brackley

New twice-per-hour bus service from Brackley to Silverstone and Towcester, with one per hour running on to Northampton and one to Milton Keynes. More »

In Brackley, service X91 will serve Market Place, Tesco, Buckingham Road, Pavillons Way, Halse Road, Northampton Road and Poppyfields Way –replacing service BB1 which is withdrawn. It will also service the Turweston Road North site once the new medical centre and employment areas are opened. Journey time from Poppyfields Way in Brackley to the centre of Milton Keynes is as little as 54 minutes. Between Brackley and Silverstone it will run directly along the A43 and between Towcester and Milton Keynes it will run directly along the A5.

Passengers wishing to travel to Northampton from Poppyfields Way, Halse Road, Pavillons Way and Buckingham Road should board the X91 towards Brackley, which will then become service 88 (on most journeys) without needing to change buses in Brackley Market Place. Through fares will be available.

Syresham

Service 88 will continue to provide peak hour journeys to Northampton, whilst service X91 will introduce a new peak hour service to Milton Keynes. Furthermore, CountyConnect will continue to provide a bookable service to Brackley and Towcester throughout the day.

Silverstone

New twice-per-hour bus service (88 and X91) from Silverstone to Brackley. 88 will serve the White Horse stops and the X91 will remain on the A413 and serve Catch Yard Farm.

New bus service X91 runs from Silverstone every hour through the edge of Towcester and directly along the A5 in to Milton Keynes. The journey time to central Milton Keynes from Silverstone is as little as 42 minutes.

Towcester

Service 88 will now divert to serve Burcote Park.

New service X91 to Milton Keynes will serve the housing area of Buckingham Way, Swinneyford Road, Bickerstaffs Road, St Lawrence Road South and Burcote Road, and will reintroduce a service for Marlow Road.

Journey time from Burcote Road to Milton Keynes is as little as 26 minutes.

Service X88

We have been informed that Stagecoach service X88, which currently provides one additional journey per day between Brackley and Northampton, will be withdrawn from the same date. This means that the 0930 bus from Brackley, Whittlebury and Syresham to Northampton will no longer operate, nor will the 1403 return journey from Northampton. However both villages will continue to be served by County Connect.

Silverstone Parish Plan and Design Statement

Silverstone Parish Plan and Design Statement

As most of you will already know the Silverstone Parish Plan and Design Statement was formally adopted by SNC on 19th July 2017 and has already played a significant role in the decision making process of controlling unacceptable development in the green core of our village.

Some may have viewed the document on this website already. It is an extremely interesting read, giving a fascinating insight into the history, life and development of Silverstone, with excellent images of the village. It also highlights the areas deemed as 'precious assets' by the community, which as current residents of Silverstone, we need to safeguard for future generations. More »

Many of you have expressed an interest in having a printed copy of this document that you can keep as an historical reference.Something to show the great-grandchildren in years to come of what Silverstone was like in the year 2017.

We have therefore decided to print a limited number of copies, which are initially offered to residents at a concession price of £3 each. They will also be available to builders and developers for the full price of £5. The Parish Council would encourage anyone considering building in the village to buy a copy to appreciate the shared vision of our community and understand the future aims with regard to design and quality of any development. The book runs to 44 pages and has been printed in full colour as a high quality booklet and would be an ideal coffee table addition.

If you would like to purchase a copy they are available at Crofts Stores.

This project has been funded and organised by Silverstone Parish Council to whom all payments will ultimately be sent. » Less
