The Parish Council has been working with Northamptonshire County Council highways department for some time to extend the 30mph limit to include the area where people walk around the recreation ground – it’s taken a while as these things do because of the statutory regulations and necessary government approval, but we got there in the end. In January, new road signs were sited on Buntings Lane and Peterborough Road to highlight the extension of the 30mph speed limit. The new speed restriction means that not only do all three gates to the Recreation Field now open onto a 30mph limit, but also traffic coming into and out of the village via Peterborough Road will be slowed down; helping to make our village a safer place.
This morning, Northamptonshire County Council development control committee considered the application for the quarry proposals at the flood meadows near Warmington Mill.
Members of the public, the parish council and 'Say No' lobby group presented strong arguments against the proposals. The committee, however, voted to grant the application planning permission.
Everyone did all that they could under the circumstances, but the need for sand and gravel to build roads and houses was deemed to outweigh the objections put forward.
The parish council will be considering the matter further on Thursday 19th November
Coronavirus (COVID-19): what you need to do

Do not leave home if you or anyone in your household has symptoms.
The company that is responsible for the agricultural reservoir to the north of Eaglethorpe, to the east of the Eaglethorpe underpass below the A605, has applied for permission to quarry land on the water meadows, close to Warmington Mill, across which the Nene Way passes. The application includes proposals to build a bridge across the River Nene to transport materials.
The same company has applied for extensions to ancillary works to the existing reservoir to be extended to 2030
and an extension to the existing plant and works site, that had been for the creation of a reservoir, to enable additional operational space for treatment of materials for landfill, stockpiling and storage.
The council has submitted a 36-page objection to the new quarry, which can be accessed here:
An executive summary of the points made is here:
The parish council is thrilled to announce that the Neighbourhood Plan, which was passed at referendum by the village with a 92% majority of votes cast, was officially adopted by East Northamptonshire Council on 17th December 2019.
The Warmington Neighbourhood Plan now forms part of the planning system and guides the outcome of all regular planning applications in the parish.
Thank you to everyone who took part in helping guide the future built environment of the parish and sharing your ideas and aspirations for wider aspects of shaping life in Warmington.
