Approval for 115-home development in Northampton

Construction work has commenced on 115 new homes on vacant land near Blackthorn Lane, with plans including electric car charging points, a new play area and 41 affordable homes.

Located on the former site of the Blackthorn Middle School, the scheme comprises the creation of 99,799 sq ft of residential properties and 33,661 sq ft of public open space.

Plans for the development include 74 three and four bedroom homes for sale on the open market, in addition to 41 one, two and three bedroom houses and apartments that will be available as affordable housing.

All open market homes will come complete with electric car charging points and a new on-site children’s area with play equipment, which would be maintained and made available for public access for life. Additionally, £56,718 has been allocated for open space contributions by Countryside.

Gary Belcher, Managing Director, Partnerships South Midlands, Countryside said: “It is with great pleasure that we have received planning permission for these much-needed family homes; our team is already on site working hard to bring this exciting scheme to life.

“The introduction of electric car charging points is a testament to our ongoing sustainability efforts, as we continually look for ways in which to make our homes even more eco-friendly.

“Abington Place will not only provide high quality and sustainable homes for sale, but will also bring significant investment into the area through the creation of a new public green space and will cater to the increasing need for affordable housing.”
