Conservation and the Environment

The Local Environment Group [BEES] helps to investigate and monitor any concerns about environmental matters which affect the village and liaises with the group developing the conservation area created to the rear of St Mary’s Church.  Projects to protect and encourage wildlife are currently being considered and this may include mowing some areas of grass verge less often or not at all.

Footpaths and Rights of Way

The Parish of Bozeat has several footpaths that connect streets within the village in addition to the field footpaths.  The Parish Council appoints Parish Path Warden(s) to monitor footpaths but is not responsible for their maintenance, they are managed by North Northamptonshire Council.

Problems can be reported to North Northamptonshire Council online using Street Doctor or FixMyStreet or to the Parish Clerk. Please supply as much detail as possible.  A photograph and What3Words reference are particularly useful.

The Environment

The Local Environment Group helps to monitor and investigate any concerns about environmental matters in the parish which may affect the village.  We will liaise with the necessary authority in these matters.

Disposal of waste and fly tipping information can be accessed via the North Northamptonshire Council website as your rubbish is your responsibility.

Historic Street Names

The Parish Council had a programme of installing new street signs to preserve historic road names in the village. The signs that have been installed to date are:

  • Allens Hill (formerly The Top)
  • Line Prop Yard (part of Easton Lane)
  • London Road (formerly The Flat)
  • London Road (formerly Olney Road)
  • Fish Alley and Court Lane

The Parish Council will make suggestions for the names of new roads in the village and often proposes names that have historic associations.  Developers may not always be aware of the links to the past and do not always use our suggestions.  Pit Field Close, for example, relates to the original field name in which the houses were then built.
