As we approach Easter, it is time for the dreaded Council Tax demand to drop through the letterbox. I wanted to take this opportunity to explain the precept requested by Upton Parish Council for the period 2018 - 2019. Upton Parish Council has always endeavoured to deliver value for money and indeed, this year, we have set the lowest precept of all the Parish Councils in Northampton. The figures given on the Council Tax demand are based on a Band D property and for the next financial year, the Band D figure for Upton is £12.61 for the year, this is an increase of £3.79 per year. Due to the small figures involved, this increase will show as a 35% increase on the previous year. Last year we could use an underspend from the previous year to offset an increase, but this year we do not have that ability due to upcoming projects. If you were not in a parished area, you would still have to pay £12.01 per year, so Upton Parish Council in effect is costing you £2.60 per year. More »
I would also like to take this opportunity to highlight some of the projects that we have been working on over the last year and hope to continue many of these in the future. We have provided funding for a zebra crossing to be installed on St Crispin Drive to allow safer crossing to the school. We are working with other agencies to look at other potential locations, across the Parish, for further crossings to be installed.
We are also working towards the installation of flashing speed signs in order to further improve traffic safety across the Parish.
Additional notice boards are to be installed to enable information to be displayed and to ensure that all residents are communicated to by relevant groups across the Parish.
The Parish Council have made a number of grants to organisations working in the Parish. These include the new community centre and the Royal British Legion.
We are currently in the process of installing rubbish bins across the Parish these will start to appear as we get the relevant authority from the developers and other agencies.
The Parish Council continues to work with the developers and the various Management Companies to hopefully improve both the services that they deliver to you and the local environment.
We are always keen to get feedback from residents and please contact the Clerk or any Councillor with any suggestions for either projects we can support or issues that you may have.
Please rest assured, that Upton Parish Council will do all within its power to make the Parish of Upton a safe and enjoyable location to live.

Our parish doesn't just cover the new housing that's sprung up recently in this part of the town. Upton parish spans an area as far as the former St Crispin's Hospital site, off Berrywood Road in Duston to the sustainable Upton Park development off Weedon Road, neighbouring Sixfields. Some 3664 people live in the parish, according to the 2011 census.
