Quinton Parish Council


Northamptonshire Police is recruiting young people.

The OPFCC Youth Commission has been set up by the Office of the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner to ensure that the views of young people are heard, and help change services for the better.


We are now looking to recruit around 20 young people from across Northamptonshire to form the 2020/21 Youth Commission. We are eager to encourage young people to apply whose voices might struggle sometimes to be heard. We are also keen to engage with young people who have already had experience of the criminal justice system. The age range for the Youth Commission is 14-19 years.


You can check out information about the commission at:

Speedwatch 2020

Quinton will take part in the above which was extended last year to include 40-mph zones. The Wootton to Salcey road was monitored during morning and evening sessions over two one-week periods. The majority of drivers were found to be respecting the speed limits, but a few number were reported. Statistics will be made available to us by the Speedwatch team in due course.


Full details can be found at:

Speeding is a major concern for all of us please volunteer so that we can try and make a difference and protect our residents and visitors.

Dog Poo

Misuse of Village Hall & Church blue recycling bins
Please DO NOT put dog poo bags in the blue recycling bins. On several occasions the blue bins have either not been emptied at all because of the inappropriate content or the dog bags have been removed by the waste contractors and left at the side of the road. This not only means that bins are being left unemptied but is also a health hazard to all.

Sewerage Works Access Road

The lane to the sewage works is not a public right of way. The gate at the top of the lane is now locked. This is to improve security for the houses and gardens which back onto it. Should you need access to the Village Store please contact Alison Benson or Tim Bull

Blocked Sewers

We have had problems with the sewers getting blocked in the Village. Please do not put anything you shouldn't down the toilet. This includes baby wipes which are a big cause of our problems.

Thank you
