The Steering Group considered all feedback offered through the Reg 14 process and amended the Neighbourhood Plan and associated documents to reflect this. (Archived Reg 14 documents are available to view here.) Parish Council approval has been granted and the Plan has entered the Regulation 16 phase.
The updated documents may be viewed through this link.
Hargrave is a small village and civil parish situated in rural Northamptonshire, England, approximately 21 miles east of Northampton, 3 miles east of Raunds and adjacent to the Northamptonshire-Cambridgeshire-Bedfordshire border.
At the time of the 2011 census, the parish's population was 241 people.
The 12th century, All Hallows Church is at the centre of the village. The village has a village hall with several active societies.
Hargrave Parish Council
Hargarve Parish Council is made up of residents who have put themselves forward for election (or occasionally co-option). They have put themselves forward because they want to improve our parish and they are prepared to make decisions for our community.
Parish Councils are statutory bodies, created and governed by acts of Parliament. They are not connected to the church or to the Parochial Church Council.
Public Rights of Way
Broadly speaking, Northamptonshire Highways are responsible for the surface being appropriate for the level of public access, also for upgrowth and bridges.
The landowner is responsible for side growth and for trees. However there are exceptions to the above depending on the situation. For instance, if upgrowth is a crop, then it is the landowners responsibility to keep the Right of Way clear.
If there is a fallen tree, or any specific concerns, please let Northants Highways know the exact details and location so that they can clearly identify who is responsible. Ideally report it via Streetdoctor on their website if possible.

All of the street lamps in Hargrave are owned by the Parish Council. We are working to ensure they are all labelled with an identifying number so that it is easier to track faults and repairs.
If you notice that a street light in Hargrave is not working, please report to the parish clerk, preferably via email, and include the street name and column number.
This link here will take you to a document that lists the lamp columns and location to make reporting easier.
