Big Local

Growing Together (Northampton East)

Save area

Growing Together Big Local covers five estates in east Northampton – Blackthorn, Goldings, Lings, Lumbertubs and Overstone Lodge. The estates were built in the early 1970s as a ‘new town’ development on the edge of Northampton.

Following extensive community consultation, we have now put together an exciting programme for our first eighteen months, based around these priorities:

  • providing better opportunities and facilities for teenagers and children
  • protecting and enhancing the local environment
  • improving the quality of life for older and disabled residents
  • encouraging volunteering and bringing the community together

All our key decisions are taken by an all-resident community partnership, supported and advised by a youth forum.
