F51 Are you satisfied with the refuse-collection system - if not, why?

A food recycling weekly facility would be good          2
1 collection per two weeks is not enough                2
Insufficient capacity for a family of 4                 2
Green bin smells                                        1
Black and green refuse bin collections should be
weekly                                                 27

Poor containers and 2-weekly collection scheme
unhealthy in warm climate                               1

Make LarkhallLane wider with curbs                     2
The more entrances/exist the more use by non
residents                                              1
Sandy Lane exit needs widening                         1
Grass at Larkhall Lane and Road Hill exits should
be cut shorter                                         1

Put one camera on each entry/exit road to monitor
activity                                               1
Roads need to be wider and with some lights, also a
RAB to go to Harpole                                   1
I like the more significant entrances you see
sometimes in other villages                            1

Widen Upper High Street                                1

Harpole turn can be dangerous both in crossing the
road coming inand turning left coming out especially
if buses are coming down the A45 to bus stop.          1
The new road should be completed urgently before
somebody else is killed. There are numerous
accidents at the junction of Larkhall Lane and
Sandy Lane                                         1
If no, how would you wish to see it changed?

We used to get the parish newsletter

The parish newsletter does not
promote news or activities sufficiently.

reported. Do residents know of

Internet speed is limited by the speed of the BT landlines. This
should be improved. Also the cables being stolen twice in a
year does not help the matter                                      1

Lots of litter ends up on our front garden (no 6) but I don't see it elsewhere     1

Keep the village a village                                                         4

Character and sense of community must be preserved in Harpole (including
green spaces. This philosophy should be at the core of our village plan            1
Any development will impact the village                                            1

Very concerned about walking with children on the pavement outside the
antiques shop. Large vehicles regularly mount the pavement to pass cars
parked opposite. Plus - the pavement slopes towards the road. The speed
at which some youths drive through the village is worrying.                        1

Relating to Q E30- New community Center for the village, not necessarily in
the playing field, but in another area, maybe between Primary School and
Bowls Club on allotmant land? There is room for the allotments to be
moved backwards as at the moment there is spare land at the top where
new allotments have been made. The car park for the community centre
could serve to accommodate parents' drop off/pick up at the school as at
the moment it's very busy around the school at these times. Especially
when buses need to get through - cars parked on either side. It's an
accident waiting to happen with children nearby. I feel the community centr
needs to be on the outskirts of the village, not centrally, in order to ease
traffic flow through the village.                                                  1
More community activities should be encouraged                                     1
New people should be welcomed                                                      1
A new e-mail communication system would help                                       1
me and my friends would like some bike jumps to be built at the playing
field as we are a bit bored there as no equipment for teenagers                    1

I run a business within the village and the limitations caused by a very slow
(by todays standards) internet connection cause us all sorts of problems           1
Poor mobile reception                                                              1

I have heard that Hall Farm is to be developed. This is of great concern to
us regarding access traffic volume etc. Some info would be good.                   1
We understand that the new road is not to be completed yet. When the
relevent authority gave the right to develop this why did they not tie the
developer down to produce the infrastructure first by contract before giving
the right.                                                                         1
Drains in sandy lane need clearing and gullies in grass verge dug out and
road sweeping. It would be good to have the sandy lane relief road
completed.                                                                        1
Building more houses in nearby fields would ruin Harpole village. It is fine
how it is. It's quiet and peaceful and we want to keep it like that.              1
When is the new road going to be finished, to Lodge Farm as top of Duston
Link?                                                                             1
I think the village needs a village magazine, not just the yellow pages. It
could be quarterly and maybe sponsored. The yellow pages could be
incorporated into it as a joint venture.                                          1
Very useful survey. Stop developments, keep Harpole rural                         1
Buses travel too fast, especially by the school                                   1
Village is fine as it is. If it's too restrictive or inadequate, then move
elsewhere. Sympathetic developments on sites where property is being
restored is acceptable. New buildings are an eyesore.                             1
Id like to see befriending service for elderly people in the village, I'd be
happy to volunteer, possibbly even adopting a grandparent etc.                    1
Internet/broadband speed would be a big advantage to many                         1
Restrict large vans and lorries parking in conservation area overnight and
on pavements                                                                      1
If large developments take place, would the mains cope?                           1
Two large areas have been ear-marked for development - where does that
take Harpole?                                                                     1
A decent village hall needed                                                      1
Dog excrement down Glassthorpe is a huge problem. Small children are at
risk of health problems from faeces                                               1
Bus on a Sunday and earlier on week days which gets you to town for 8am.
Bugbrooke has an early bus - and what about a free bus to Tesco, plus a
bus shelter onleft hand side. Also further local shared ownership and rented
housingh assoc is needed, but to go to people and couples who have a
connection to Harpole or live with their parents                                  1
When is the new road going to be completed to take the pressure off lorries
using Sandy Lane and the village. New ideas to encourage parents not to
use cars if they live locally. Larkhall Lane is an utter nightmare am amd pm
with cars arked everywhere, blocking drive ways and emergency services.
Visitors for football parking 2 wheels on pavements - what about
pedestrians and wheelchairs?                                                      1
It's about time people started to think about young people in the village and
where they are going tolive when they grow up. Unemployed and
desperate?                                                                        1
Anti-social behaviour will get worse when police cut the ASBO, solve it by
providing better up to date activities and youth commities. A huge
intergenerational gap needs inter-generational projects and community
cohesion.                                                                         1
There is little or no room to expand unless it is for leisure activities, leave
well alone                                                                        1
Lack of high speed broadband a major issue for this village. It might
encourage more community volunteering if there were incentives e.g.
money off room hire, monthly draw, annual social event for volunteers
willing to give help with preparation of the plan.                                1
Local engineering or other manufacturing small scale with more local
employment would keep it alive and attract housing other than suburban
development                                                                       1
Remove extinct bus stop outside 46 Upper High Street. Please scarp
scarecrow weekend - a nightmare with strangers coming through the
village. This questionnaire is an excellent idea - hoep lots of points raised,
collated and discussed.                                                          1
We like the village as it is, our biggest conern is about being swallowed up
by northampton.                                                                  1
If responsible dog owners, then I see no issue in allowing dogs to exercise
in playing field.                                                                1
Re (54) problem with traffic coming into village from Grange Farm end not
wanting to give way to traffic on wrong side of street                           1

Continuation of path up Larkhall Lane towards Sandy lane to increase use
of footpath may encourage children to walk from St Crispins to school.
Keep the village a village!                                                      1

This is badly worded questionnaire. Probably 6 7 and 8 doesn't allow an
objective view against another project such as the new social housing.           1
Re q 54, there should be no parking in Larkhall Lane and Carrs Way. Carrs
Way and manor Close should be restricted to 20 mph. The petrolstation at
the turn should not be on the A4500                                              1

South view always seems to be left out of village activities and information     1
Total garage missed off this questionnaire??                                     1
Keep Harpole rural/a village - no extensive developments should be
allowed.                                                                         3

The bad condition of the road in Larkhall Lane is a disgrace to the village      1
No need for new village hall as the bowls club has excellent facilities for
everyone to use                                                                  1
If there is to be development on a large scale around Harpole, it would be
prudent to fight for green space to be left between Harploe and the future
development (more likely to be a battle that could be won)                       1
Harpole must remain a village. Any development to west of N'ton must be
halted; there are plenty of brownfield sites within the town to accommodate
housing needs. Protect all existing mature trees and plant more indiginous
tree species                                                                     2
I think it is very important to protect Harpole from too much development to
retain its character and charm                                                   1
We get boys and girls shouting and screaming all hours of night down the
playing field                                                                    1
Some partst of this questionnaire were not relevant to my situation. I am
unable to participate in village affairs or activities                           1
Post office a priority                                                           1
Transport is paramount to not become a suburb of Northampton                     1
Scarecrow event is accident waiting to happen - should be stopped, it's had
its day                                                                          1
Low cost starter homes for young adults living in Harpole to buy or rent         1
Phone signal is poor in the area                                                 1

Re F42, accident waiting to happen. Speeding vehicles approaching Old
School area. Bottle neck with hidden corner, no speed restriction shown.         1
Further housing needed in or around the village                                  1
Re 56/57 the sate of the roads and pavements drags down the village. The
road and pavement holes and dips are both a vehicle and safety danger - I
have already had a broken half shaft from the School road state. The road
covering is now worn away. Low sun on the wet tar remaining blinds in
winter - one day soon this will cause a head-on 60mph accident.                 1
The village needs more fields to exercise dogs off the lead                     1

Complete Sandy lane relief road. Need proper management of allotments           1
Parking - follow Weedon's example and provide car park for visitors edge
or centre of village                                                            1
Please note we are both 78 years old and have filled the questionnaire in
as best we can. Thank you                                                       1

In heavy rainfall, concerned that surface water gets away from road surface
as home/drive is at lower level than road (Larkhall Lane). Occasionally
neighbour's gardenon opposite side of road has standing water. Ditches
along Larkhall Lane need to be regularly cleaned and kept clear.                1
Ref C16: I do not want the village following the fate of Duston, Kingsthorpe,
Moulton, ie losing its character and community - I live here NOT to be in a
town - Hands off Harpole!!                                                      1

A lot of dog mess along Larkhall Lane. Dogs frequently taken into allotment     1
Extend playing field for more parking                                           1
Restrict development to along the main road - create a Harpole village "B",
leave village "A" untouched. Sewarage system can't take increased
housing.                                                                        1
All items are important to a community and must give priority to most urgent
as required                                                                     1
Street sweeping has been reduced by SNC so that only High Street is done
once a month, the rest every 3 months so leaves etc block drains and
weeds grow at the kerbside - unsightly                                          1
Could you make Harpole a "no cold calling" zone                                 1
It is important that further development should have adequtae means of
access, also placed where would have minimal impact on rest of village -
adds to more traffic on roads that already have parked cars on pedestrian
footpaths.                                                                      1

The only good pub is Turnpike - the other 2 need a good refurb and food.        1
The playing field is an essential resource for my children                      1
A post office wouldbe a great asset to the village                              1

A day care centre is very important. A sustainable tourism plan could help
to improve the quality of living for the community. It is very important to
remunerate some income and build a day care centre. Olympics is an
opportunity for the village to develop a plan but government should get
involved and some private companies. A harpole sustainable tourism plan
could be used as a ....? project for other villages in N'shire areas.           1
Harpole is agrat place to live, it's full of lovely people - let's keep our
independence and not become like Northampton.                                   2
Broadband speed is desperate here - need for studying and working from
home                                                                            1
Section 64 - 66 why did thes have "yes, no" boxes when the rest have put Y
or N?                                                                           1
Answer boxes in these questionnaires are small - but a useful set of
questions                                                                       1
No development within parish confines
Harpole should become a secure gated community to keep out the
undesirables                                                                    1
Need post office                                                                2
More parking bays around village e.g. mount pleasant                            1
Need new village hall - pc needs to be more proactive. Pc should arrange
for overgrown footpaths to be cut down.                                         1
The number of driving schools who use Harpole for learner drivers
exacerbates these problems                                                      1
Building excessive housing around the village will increase congestion.
Ditto building new large warehousing facilitated at J16. I would advocate
the development on brownfield sites for housing.                                1
As disabled shop is very important however would be nice to be able to
access playing field and other green areas.                                     1
The local shop is excellent. Not only are the staff friendly they keep you in
touch with what's happening in the village                                      1
Does village have insurance to cover applying grit to pavenments? Can I
be sued if I use the village grit bins and someone slips over?                  1
Any new housing should be for Harpole people                                    1
Harpole is dangerous. I have seen traffic go over to turn right. Roundabout
or light or closed off altogether. There must be a solution                     1
Bring back good pub food at Bull like it used to be.
Nothing should be done which is likely to depress the prices of existing
properties in the village                                                       1
Retirement homes - rules for qualification for these rae not consistent. This
also applies to younger people who want to get back to the village and own
their own suitable properties elsewhere                                         1

I would like to comment that on the front inside page it states that
questionaires can be completed anonymously yet when I get to the back
page the house number is already written in. No doubt the collector will the
post code? Not a problem really - just a humerous observation....               1
Larkhall Lane bus shelter to be moved or taken down, not been used since
bus route altered years ago.                                                    1
Re 54: There is a large area of green outside the sheltered housing in
Garners Way. Couldn't part of this be recessed to give more parking
spaces as negotiating Garner's Way is a nightmare                               1
