Local Plan Part 2 Additional Site Allocation

On 20 January 2020, the Planning Policy Committee reviewed and considered the final batch of representations submitted during the previous (November 2018 – February 2019) consultation. The Committee also agreed that the Council should consult on two additional development site proposals that were put forward during the draft plan consultation:

  • Land to the west of Rushden Lakes – development of 450 houses, employment related uses, a hotel and green infrastructure; and
  • Land between Newton Road and Chelveston Road (west of Moulton College), Higham Ferrers – development of a new 145 place secondary school for pupils with Special Education Needs (SEN) with associated access, facilities etc.

Background papers have been produced for each of these site specific proposals, to provide further detail. Each background paper sets out draft Local Plan text extracts (policy and supporting text). 

Representations were invited on the draft text and policies appended to each document:

Further information is also available through the following Q&A sheet:

A questionnaire was set up to assist the consultation process and was open from 10th February to 23rd March 2020.
