Kettering Borough Council are currently consulting on the Local Plan for the Borough. The SSP2 will allocate land for housing, employment, retail, leisure and community facilities and will contain policies relating to specific areas and topics such as Local Green Space, Green Infrastructure and Settlement Boundaries.
- The section that relates directly to Thorpe Malsor is Policy THM1
- Plans to improve footpath links between Loddington/Thorpe Malsor/Kettering are mentioned in Policy LOD1(i)
- To view the Thorpe Malsor Boundary Map see here.
The full plan is available to read on the Consultation Portal and comments can be made on line by creating a login. Alternatively, you can e-mail comments to firstname.lastname@example.org or send by post to: Development Services (Planning Policy) at the Council offices in Bowling Green Road, Kettering.
All comments received are made publicly available on the consultation portal and your personal details will be added onto the consultation portal database; however no personal details will be displayed on line.
The consultation closes at 5.30pm on Wednesday 12th February 2020.
We have been notified that arrangements for parking enforcement in Kettering are changing. From Monday, 3rd February the introduction of Civil Parking Enforcement (CPE) means that Kettering Borough Council will be responsible for monitoring on-street parking instead of the police. Under the new powers the Council is able to retain the income from penalties and plan to employ more staff to enforce the existing rules.
Don’t get a ticket! Check here to make sure you are aware of the waiting and parking restriction rules.
We have been notified of roadworks commencing on 28th October on the section of Rothwell Road between the Gypsey Lane junction and the A14 roundabout (related to work on the site entrance of the new housing development in that area).
We understand both lanes will remain open, but with narrower lanes, and it is likely this will cause delays on that section.
Thorpe Malsor Parish Council is very pleased to announce that we have secured funding for a complete renovation of the Village Play Area to the value of £27,500! We will be having a consultation with all village children (and adults!) to look at new equipment options – please look out for further details of this and contribute your ideas. The funding has come from the WREN waste recycling organisation and will be managed by Kettering Borough Council.
As in previous years, All Saints Church in Thorpe Malsor will be floodlit from 1st December to 18th January 2019 to celebrate Christmas and the New Year.
If you would like to sponsor a night in memory of a loved one, to mark a special occasion, or simply to enjoy the sight of the floodlit Church, Jane Harrison will be taking names and collecting contributions. The cost this year will remain at £6 per night.
You can contact Jane on Kettering 412496 or just pop a note through her door – Manus Cottage, Church Way (almost opposite the Church).
