Copies of the draft plan are available online or in Gretton Village Hall, Lydias Coffee Shop, the Baptist Chapel, St. James Church, and the Cottage Salon.

Residents will then get a further opportunity to comment before the document is sent to an independent examiner.

Representations from 'statutory consultees and other stakeholders and interested parties' have been urged to get in touch as part of the process.

The committee said: "The Gretton neighbourhood plan aspires to have more control of planning decisions applicable to Gretton Parish, up to 2031, together with the policies in the National Planning Policy Framework, which embrace the whole of the country and the North Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy which was adopted in July 2016.

"Corby Council as the local planning authority will continue to determine planning applications, but they will have to consider the policies in the neighbourhood plan when reaching their decision."

Print versions of the plan is available at Gretton Village Hall, Lydia’s Coffee Shop, The Baptist Chapel, St. James’ Church, and The Cottage Salon.

The consultation period closes on Tuesday, November 12 2019.
