Land at South Desborough (Now Closed)


Thank you for taking the time to review the draft plans for the expansion of Desborough. We invite you to share and help shape the proposals.


The North Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy identifies the need to provide more homes, including an allocation for the town of Desborough. The site, to the south of Desborough is identified within the emerging Site Specific Proposals Local Development Document as a potentially suitable site to accommodate some of the allocation.

Brooke Smith Planning are preparing a planning application on behalf of the joint landowners to provide residential development with associated infrastructure and public open spaces. The aim of the public consultation exercise is to help evolve the potential form of the outline proposals, notwithstanding the principle of the development.

Following this consultation exercise, the final form and content of an outline planning application will be produced. Ultimately an outline planning application will be submitted for consideration, at which point, the Council will undertake further consultation with statutory, non-statutory parties and local residents.

The outline planning application will seek approval of the principle of development with details such as road and house locations subject to a later separate submission and consideration, provided that outline planning consent is granted.
