An application for a major expansion to the west of Irthlingborough including 700 houses was granted by East Northamptonshire Council’s Development Control meeting on Monday, 24 November.
Members agreed with the officer recommendation to grant the application for a mixed use development which as well as housing, also covers commercial development for business, industrial and storage use, land for expansion of Huxlow Science College and drainage and highways infrastructure.
The application came to the Development Control committee following public consultation and councillors debated concerns around other development plans for the town and the need for appropriate infrastructure and facilities. They also considered petitions and letters objecting to the development.
