North Northamptonshire Core Spatial Strategy ConsultationCLA has submitted a response to the North Northamptonshire Core Spatial Strategy consultation. Our response stressed the need for the Core Strategy to have the economy and economic growth at its heart.
If the projected level of housing is to be delivered, without a large proportion of out-commuting then there will have to be a substantial growth in real local employment opportunities in North Northamptonshire.
We were disappointed that the rural area featured to such a limited degree within the Core Spatial Strategy. Whilst the majority of the residential and employment development are quite rightly targeted at the urban areas we stressed that the role of the rural area must not be forgotten.
There will be an impact on the rural area which needs to be quantified and could include increased need for recreation and tourism, use of land for bio-energy production and water storage or flood alleviation. These are all land-use requirements that must be addressed and that are currently omitted from the plan.
We also commented that the rural area should provide employment for those that live there. Diversification of the rural economy is important (not just to preserve farming businesses) to produce real employment opportunities in the rural area for those that live there.
