"Cases of Covid are rising across the county, by getting both jabs you reduce the chance of being hospitalised by over 92%.
This NHS video features young Covid patients talking about their experiences of suffering from serious Covid-19 and developing Long Covid, and the experience of Doctors and frontline staff treating them: https://youtu.be/XEwwcIs6aH4.
"In hindsight I wish I had taken the jab when I was initially offered it. I now understand that it would have likely reduced my chances of ending up in hospital or given me a stronger chance of fighting it off. I would take that in a heartbeat" – Quincy, 31. More »

The Oxford-Cambridge Arc is a huge swathe of middle England that has been identified for inward investment and
The Arc is a centre of high-tech manufacturing and research but east-west infrastructure within the Arc is limited. Work has begun to extend East West Rail from Bicester to the West
Coast Main Line at Bletchley (Milton Keynes) and onward extension to Cambridge is planned. New roads linking the A34 near Oxford with the A14 near Cambridge are planned. More »
With the improved infrastructure comes huge economic and residential development. The plan is for one million new homes in the Arc by 2050.
The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) has launched a consultation called "Creating a vision for the Oxford-Cambridge Arc", which will "focus on making the Arc a better place to live, helping to implement strategic planning under four 'pillars': environment, economy, connectivity and infrastructure, and place-making."
Sustainability will be at the heart of the process, so alongside seeking views on the vision, the government is also seeking views on the initial work done to set the scope of the Sustainability Appraisal (SA), which will address environmental, social and economic factors.
The consultation will run for 12 weeks until 12 October 2021 and is open to all members of the public. Councils are encouraged to respond and to share the consultation with residents. Whether the Arc is a good thing for Northamptonshire depends on your point of view. It will bring jobs and investment, but it will also bring significant housing and population growth.
See the government's consultation pages at https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/creating-a-vision-for-the-oxford-cambridge-arc for details on how to respond.

Following on from the earlier completed ecology surveys we will now be continuing our established programme of bat and ecology mitigation.
To enable this to happen safely we will complete the works over eight phases and we will need to have full weekday and some Saturday closures between 27 September until 19 November 2021.
Weekday closures will take place during the hours of 09.30am to 3.30pm and Saturdays 8am until 1pm. This is to allow ecologists to safely observe and where necessary climb roadside trees to check for habitat. Subject to the outcome of these surveys tree limbs / trees may be felled at this time. We will also be undertaking roadside vegetation clearance as part of the great crested newt mitigation works. More »
Please see attached advance works notice which give more information on the location of the closures and diversion routes.
