Welcome to Stanwick Village Residents' Group

We love our village and everything about it. To ensure it stays as beatiful peaceful and welcoming as it has always been, the Group has been established to support how the village grows. We are here to ensure that approaches by land developers are appropriate and to work with the Parish Council and East Northants Disctrict Council to ensure that all issues and matters related to the views of the community of Stanwick are correctly addressed.

Below are the most recent news updates related to our activities and progress on proposed changes to our community.

Can the Voice of the People change Policy

We spotted this on the HM Government E-Petitions website:


"Amend the NPPF now before irreversible damage is caused to our communities

Responsible department: Department for Communities and Local Government

We the undersigned support the principles of the NPPF but believe that its implementation has led to unanticipated consequences.

Opportunist planning applications are being lodged around the country where planning authorities have not adopted their Core Strategy nor have a 5 year housing land supply. In these cases, all planning rules seem to be abandoned including many of the core planning principles in the NPPF.

We believe that such large scale development risks massive, irreversible damage to our villages and the surrounding countryside.

We do not believe that this was the intention of the NPPF and ask the Government to urgently introduce three specific amendments:

  1. to allow decision makers to take into account the cumulative effect of development as a material planning consideration;
  2. to allow planning authorities an extension of time to adopt a new Core Strategy; and
  3. to require a sequential test to be applied to encourage the effective use of brown field land."


If you, like us, feel that the only way the planning dilemma we and others face can be addressed is by demanding a change to Government Policy, then follow this link and put your name forward!
