The report from the Pathfinder II Project which is under consideration by the Parish Council can be seen by clicking here. It contains maps and surveys of water courses, drains, and possible flood areas in the Parish, together with guidance on how to maintain these and further investigations required. Flood Warden Gary Hague has had CCTV surveys of key parts of the hidden pipework carried out to see if there are and problems. He will share the results once the current lock-down is over.

KBC has announced a scheme to save money on energy by collective purchasing. It is designed to make it easier to switch to a cheaper electricity or gas tariff. In short, anyone can register for free by 8 October 2018. After the registration period ends, all those who have registered are offered a new energy tariff which they can accept, or not, as they wish. Details are here.
Please see in the link below a poster that outlines the Locally Identified Priorities for the Rural Police Team for the months of October to December. These have been identified by the locally community as what they want Police and partners to concentrate on.
The Local Police team would also like to ask for some help in collecting the data for the next set of Priorities. I have copied below the link that will take you to the Survey. Our Community can have a real impact on what the Police and partners prioritise in the coming months.

A message from NENESCAPE - Landscape and Partnership Scheme:
I am writing to you from River Nene Regional Park. We are working with Kettering Borough Council to facilitate the creation of a Green Infrastructure Delivery Plan for the whole borough, to support the regional and sub-regional green infrastructure plans. There will be ongoing stakeholder engagement with statutory bodies and landowners as well as local community engagement.
In order to ensure we are taking the aspirations of local communities into account and listening to the ideas and opinions of green infrastructure users, we will be holding a few public consultation drop-in events. I have attached a poster with further information and we would be very grateful if you were able to distribute it to public noticeboards, parish magazines and anywhere else your community might be able to see it. We encourage anyone with an interest to come along to any of the workshops (yourselves naturally included in that!) and we look forward to discussing your ideas together. Please also feel free to pass on the poster to local interest groups who use or look after green spaces.
If you or anyone else is unable to come to the drop-in sessions, there is also an online survey here https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/YSNQ7MT and we are happy for this link to be circulated. The survey will be live until the end of October to collate as many opinions as possible.
If you or anyone else has any questions, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.
We look forward to meeting you at a drop-in session.
There has been some interest shown from parishes in relation to the East Kettering Development in recent times, so please note that there will be an East Kettering Liaison Forum held at KBC on 7th September from 6.00pm. This is a public meeting and any interested parties are welcome to attend.
