Additional supplementary documents including a report on the recent summer consultation are available on the Consultation 2017 page.


In September 2013, Desborough Town Council decided to work with local organisations and members of the public to bring forward a Neighbourhood Plan for the town, known as the Desborough Town Plan.  A Working Party was set-up to get the process going and decide the format of the Steering Group.  In March 2014, the first consultation event was held to enlist Steering Group members and people who would be interested in taking part in discussion groups.

The Working Party held further public events in May and June 2014 asking the town’s residents what they felt was ‘good, ‘bad’ and ‘ugly’ in Desborough and also ‘what needed to change’.  These events were very useful and enabled the Steering Group members to start planning with the help of Planning Aid in a series of training sessions held throughout the summer.  The Steering Group met officially for the first time in September 2014, discussing the first draft of the project plan and allocating roles for the members. 

If you would like to receive updates on what’s happening with the plan please complete the form at the bottom of this page.
