Huge thanks to Tim Kidger, Graham Martin, Kate Wilson, Ian Wilson and Roseann Wood for their help. There were quite a few bin bags filled with rubbish. It was amazing that DDC came and collected what they did so promptly. The fly tipped rubbish beside the burnt-out barn and the ditch below the Red House has also been reported to DDC so fingers crossed they come and clear that also.

PLANNING APPLICATION DA/2019/0327 Land At Mere Farm Business Complex, Red House Lane, Hannington, Northamptonshire, NN6 9FP

Hannington Parish Council have on 6th May 2019 objected due to:-

Failure to adequately consult with NCC Highways regarding the impact of increased traffic on the A43 Trunk Road junction (with Red House Lane) – one of the most dangerous in the county.

This needs to be taken in conjunction with DA/2019/0102 – a new warehouse for a courier company and the increased traffic – cars/vas/HGVs this brings.

The scale of the development is disproportional to size of the village which only has 110 houses.

The lack of public transport links.

The site chosen contains a Solvent Factory and also has heavy machinery in operation – Health & Safety implications – why is this acceptable.

Hannington is not a tourism area within the County, based on an industrial site with no amenities to support visitors, yet a similar, albeit much smaller scheme, for Lodges at Pitsford Reservoir with all its surrounding amenities and leisure facilities was unacceptable to the Planning Committee & DDC.

< > for construction of a new vehicular access onto Red House Lane was refused by DDC due to the impact on traffic.HANNINGTON VILLAGE HALL

The Village Hall is available to hire. .The charge is £6.50 per hour (subject to a minimum charge of £13.50).  For further details and bookings please contact Maureen Souter (781486).

The Parish Council has invested £3,000 of the monies it has received under the Community Infrastructure Levy to upgrade 12 of the Village’s street lights.  The PC had been informed that the 35W SOX lanterns that they used were being discontinued, so they have now been replaced by Holophane S-Line LED lanterns.  These use less electricity, leading to a reduction in its energy bills moving forward.  Without the CIL monies, the Parish Council would have had to increase the precept to cover the total cost of the changeover.


The Parish Council currently has two vacancies that can be filled by co-option. To qualify, a person must be a Commonwealth citizen or EU national, over 18 years of age and an elector, must reside within the parish of Hannington, or within 3 miles of it, or occupy as owner or tenant any land or premises therein, or have their principal or only place of work there, and must not be disqualified from holding office as a Councillor.  Please contact the Clerk if you are interested in filling these positions.


This year’s Annual Parish Meeting will be held on MONDAY 20th MAY at 7.15pm in the Village Hall.  This meeting gives villagers the opportunity to come along and hear both the Chairman’s and Financial Report. In addition villagers can also raise any questions they have.


The next Parish Council meeting will be held on MONDAY 3 JUNE at 7.15pm in the Village Hall.  All villagers are welcome to attend.
