Final stage for plan to protect and grow South Northamptonshire

Final stage for plan to protect and grow South Northamptonshire

A major new policy document which will shape any changes in South Northants for years to come has been sent to the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government.

Five years in the making and after five public consultations, the South Northants Council (SNC) Local Plan Part 2 follows on from the West Northants Joint Core Strategy and adds detailed planning policies which are specific to the district.If accepted, the Local Plan Part 2 will sit alongside other planning policies to form the basis through which planning decisions are made.Cllr Roger Clarke, SNC's portfolio holder for Planning, said: "With its two successful market towns of Brackley and Towcester, the dynamic Silverstone circuit which supports the High Performance Technology and Motorsport Engineering sector, this is an economically successful place."We are also blessed with wonderful landscapes and villages, many of which contain conservation areas and reflect the history and heritage that is the foundation of the district."This makes South Northamptonshire a great place to live, work and play."The Local Plan embraces that backdrop and seeks to ensure all new development is good development, in the right locations to support growth and enhance the quality of life that our residents and businesses expect and deserve."Creation of the Local Plan has included a review of which settlements are the most sustainable and capable of serving more homes and a review of village confines and where open countryside starts.The Local Plan also sets out a series of new policies to guide the construction of all types of housing, such as starter homes, self-build and homes for older people to ensure greater housing choice is provided for all local residents.The Planning Inspectorate will appoint an Inspector who will conduct the examination into the soundness of the submitted plan.The examination will focus on the main issues that the Inspector considers are fundamental to the soundness of the plan.It is likely that there will be a number of public Hearings including contributions from those who responded to the consultations.END
