During the election campaign, we listened to what local people said to us. We have already undertaken a lot of casework related to fly tipping, litter and housing issues. We have three projects for which we are looking for support.

We have secured premises for the friends of Delapre Abbey so they can continue their role as community partners in the Abbey restoration.

We are striving to help Gail Butcher achieve closure by ensuring the truth about her situation is put in the public domain-

And lastly-we want to help set up a programme of youth activities to help our young people reach their potential.

We will be campaigning on all these and other issues to get the best deal for people in Delapre, Briar Hill and Far Cotton.”

Childhood obesity is a national crisis. It is a complex issue that needs a complex response. Local authorities can contribute to this by changing their policy framework to prevent fast food outlets opening near schools. This is what Councils up and down the country are doing.

The Labour group are calling on Northampton Council to follow the example of other authorities to have a policy that restricts fast food outlets within a 400-metre radius of schools. In addition, the motion going to the council asks the Borough to consider setting up healthy food awards for local retailers.

Cllr. Vicky Culbard, (Labour, Delapre and Briar Hill) says, “Childhood obesity has reached epidemic proportions. All of us need to take responsibility and do what we can to create a healthier environment for all our children. Of course, we need a TV watershed so that children are not bombarded with adverts for junk food. Of course, we need a sugar tax. Of course, we need parents, communities and schools to support healthy diets.

What we can do at the council is to stop allowing fast food, junk food outlets, to operate near schools. Additionally, we can look at having healthy food awards for responsible retailers and restaurants to encourage them”.

Cllr. Janice Duffy (Labour, Talavera), says, “Childhood obesity affects the quality of life of the children who are affected. It also has an adverse effect on their life chances. We must do all we can to support a healthy lifestyle for all our children.

The council can change planning policy and that is what we must do!”.
