The Four Year Plan has been created to direct the actions of the Council until the next round of parish elections in May 2025. 

This is a statement of the Parish Council’s vision for the parish, its purpose, values, objectives and key priorities. It is not intended to be a traditional ‘Parish Plan’ which sets out aims and ambitions that are delivered by the community and partners as a whole. 

It is a document that sets out what Stanwick Parish Council itself can achieve, either directly or by trying to increase its influence on the relevant delivery body, such as the Unitary Council and partner organisations.

The Four Year Plan was adopted by the Parish Council at its meeting on 23rd September 2021. 

The Plan will be accompanied by action plans. The first of these to be adopted is Overarching Plan and the Year 1 Plan.

The Overarching Plan does not have any target dates because these are actions that the Council will be striving to achieve at all times.

The Year 1 Plan will be updated on a periodic basis to show the progress made.

In the background there is a much longer list of ideas and possible actions that will be continually be added to over the life of the Council and this document will be used to create the action plans for future years.

Stanwick in Bloom

We will be holding an informal Stanwick in Bloom alongside the Platinum Jubilee Celebrations. Free to enter, you will be able to add your home to the trail map. The map can be found on the notice board on the side of the village hall and is pinned to the top of our Facebook page. Individual paper maps are not available.
There are no hard and fast rules - hanging baskets, pots, flower beds, decorate a window, decorate the house, create a scene with scarecrows, the choice is yours.
Stanwick in Bloom - clarification

When we had the idea for Stanwick in Bloom the thought was to have the front of properties decorated and looking floral with people wandering by, much like during the scarecrow festival. I have had a few enquiries asking if gardens needs to be open for all 4 days from people thinking about access to the rear of their properties.

We are mindful of community safety considerations and would not want gates left unlocked and homeowners having strangers (however nice everyone in Stanwick is) walk in randomly over a 4 day period.

So, as we have not had a significant number of properties come forward, a map will be produced that will be pinned to the top of our facebook page and will be on the notice board. We will not be selling trail maps.

There is still time to add your property to the map - please let me know by the end of Wednesday 25th May if you plan to decorate your house and would like to be included - thank you

Stanwick Bunting
Our environmentally friendly, not-single-use bunting has been expanded thanks to the donation of material and time given to cut up the fabric and the people who have stitched all on to the tapes. Thank you.

On 17th July 2017 East Northamptonshire Council 'made' the Stanwick Neighbourhood Development Plan 2016-2031. This means that they had adopted the Plan and that the local planning authority and planning inspectors considering planning applications or appeals must make their decisions in accordance with the policies of the Development Plan, unless material considerations indicate otherwise.

Key statutory supporting documents such as screening reports and statutory notices are included in the Basic Conditions Statement that can be downloaded below.

In March 2014 there was an initial public meeting in Stanwick Primary School Hall to gauge level of interest and support for a Stanwick Neighbourhood Plan and the process culminated in a Referendum on 29th June 2017 with 759 votes supporting the proposed Neighbourhood Development Plan and 20 votes not supporting the Plan.

As part of work to write the Neighbourhood Development Plan, the Steering Group referred to both existing policies of other authorities and undertook the creation of Stanwick specific reports. These are listed below as the 'evidence base'.  Please note that that the policies produced by other authorities may have been subsequently updated or replaced. The documents made available here are the versions that were available to the steering group.

Neighbourhood Plan Documents

Evidence Base

1. Documents produced by the Steering Group as part of the Plan process

2. Higher level planning policies referenced by the Steering Group when preparing the Plan

3. Documents produced by other authorities referenced by the steering group when preparing the plan
