Local Plan Part 2 - Rural North, Oundle and Thrapston Plan
The Rural North, Oundle and Thrapston Plan (RNOTP), the Local Plan Part 2 (site specific policies), was adopted by Full Council on 18 July 2011. This, along with the North Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy 2011-2031, the Local Plan Part 1 (adopted 14 July 2016), form the statutory Local Plan for East Northamptonshire.

Many policies from the RNOTP were replaced by the new Joint Core Strategy policies, with effect from 14 July 2016. A parish by parish list of remaining applicable RNOTP policies is available through the link below.
Other key documentation associated with the Plan's adoption are available through the following links:
An update to the Strategic Flood Risk Assessment (SFRA) for the District (a “Level 1” update) was completed by URS/ Scott Wilson in August 2011. This recommended that certain sites, including Oundle Marina (RNOTP Policy 21) ought to be subject to more detailed site specific “Level 2” SFRA work.
Since completion of the Level, the Council has been in discussions with the Environment Agency about the possibility of undertaking detailed Level 2 SFRA assessments for a number of sensitive locations. The letter below and Level 1 SFRA update should be taken into account alongside the relevant RNOTP policies when considering specific development proposals.
