Have your say on plans for Weston Favell Health and Wellbeing Hub

Northampton residents are invited to share their views on plans for a major Health and Wellbeing Hub in Weston Favell.

In March 2020, Northampton Borough Council appointed Continuum Sport and Leisure and Hawkins Brown Architects to complete a design feasibility study for the Health and wellbeing Hub in Weston Favell. This has been identified as a leading priority by the Council as the health and wellbeing of residents is high on the agenda. More »

This project is a partnership with Weston Favell Shopping Centre, Northampton Leisure Trust, Northamptonshire County Council, Northamptonshire Sport, Northamptonshire Police, Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, NHS NENE Clinical Commissioning Group, and Northampton General Hospital NHS Trust.

It proposes to replace 3.8 hectares of dated and poor-quality public-sector buildings and land at Weston Favell with a new Health and Wellbeing Hub.

Julie Lemmy, Deputy Director of Primary Care, NHS Nene CCG, said: "Having a fit-for-purpose primary care building at Weston Favell is a priority for the CCG and we are therefore keen to hear from patients and residents about what we can do to improve the current site."

As part of this process, the Council wants to ensure residents have an opportunity to make their voices heard. Given the restrictions on public meetings due to coronavirus, the partnership has developed a virtual public consultation room and a survey to help them understand the needs of the local community and to help shape the overarching direction of the hub.

Cllr Tim Hadland, Council Cabinet member for regeneration and enterprise, said: "It is vital that we get as many opinions as possible about how this site can best be developed, so we can ensure it meets the needs of the community.

"There are already some amazing examples in other parts of the country and while we would like to replicate their success, we also want something that is built around our residents' wishes."

Visitors to the online consultation room will find information on the overall project brief, aspirations of the Council and its partners, information on the current site and facilities, and a draft timeline. They will also be able to offer their thoughts and comments on the content of the room.

Following this public consultation, the Council hopes to host a drop-in session later in the autumn where members of the public will be able to see the emerging options for the Health and Wellbeing Hub and the initial architects' impressions of the facility. Further information will be provided following the online public consultation.

The online consultation room and surveys will run from 14 September to 12 October and can be accessed here:

Temporary traffic measures in Northampton town centre

New traffic management measures are being introduced temporarily at The Ridings in Northampton from Friday, 4 September 2020 to give pedestrians greater freedom to maintain two metres distance and reduce the spread of coronavirus.

The measures will see the Ridings closed to traffic between 7.30pm to 2am every Friday and Saturday from Friday, 4 September until further notice.

The closure will be from the car park exit on the Ridings up to the junction with Fish Street. However, as a left turn from Fish Street is prohibited, these measures will also lead to the closure of Dychurch Lane. More »

The road will be open as normal during the day. It will be an offence to attempt to drive a motor vehicle along The Ridings during the advised times and days. Any deliveries that require the use of The Ridings, should be rescheduled to be delivered outside of these times.

Councillor Anna King, Cabinet member for community engagement and safety, said: "The safety of those who come to Northampton is our primary objective and from Friday visitors will have the additional reassurance of being able to use The Ridings and enjoy the experience free from traffic. I encourage them to do just that while observing the requirements for social distancing.

"These changes will make it easier for people to maintain physical distance while, visiting local amenities, allowing for safer social distancing queue management protecting people from moving vehicles while delivering a more pleasant experience and supporting our night-time economy at this difficult time." » Less
