A selection of your Thoughts and your Feedback from the Issues Consultation February-March 2011:
I want the heritage of wellingborough to be preserved. Old ironstone buildings should not be torn down. New builds should be built using ironstone and have interesting aesthetic features. The beauty of a town largely depends upon the architecture. If you look at pictures of how wellingborough looked in the 1950s one sees how ugly this market town has now become. Its beauty has been destroyed by people who have absolutely no regard for aesthetics.

Why do we keep encouraging Londoners to come here to live when all they do is clog up every street in the town all day with parked cars while they go off to London on the train to work.
I would like to see from immediate effect all new housing and other buildings to have photovoltaic cells upon roof tops. All new buildings or housing should have local electricity generating schemes within their area.
The Village of Irchester want no development to the South of the Village to protect the Stunning Countryside and the Historically important treasures within that land. All Development short or long term should be on land to the North of the Village towards the A45 Including improvements to the slip road off the A45 up to 2031.

Some farms will need to upgrade their farm buildings, whether it’s new barns, grain stores, livestock buildings etc. Without permission for these they won’t be able to farm so efficiently, or in some cases at all.
Older buildings can be preserved by conversion to businessuseorlivingaccommodation. Plans which ban barn conversions are not helpful! Very often the barn conversion funds the change in direction of the business; moving out of the farm to new premises, etc.
Farmers are being encouraged by government todevelopall types ofrenewables on their farms, to help meet the EU imposed target for renewable energy in this country.SomeCouncils tend to want renewables that are so small scale as to be useless; they need to be of a size that have a decent stab atfuelling the farm.
