Green light recommended for 118 home development in Northampton

Plans from Taylor Wimpey UK for new homes on land west of St Crispin Drive in Northampton have been recommended for approval.

118 two and two and a half storey homes will be built if the plans are given the final go-ahead, comprising of 2 to 5-bedroom properties.

The application site is located to the north west of the centre of Northampton and consists of 5.88 hectares of former agriculture land.

A council document released ahead of the final decision on the plans says: “The development of the site for 118 dwellings would make a positive contribution towards the Borough Council’s 5 year housing land requirement.

“The site is located in a sustainable location on the edge of Northampton with good access to public transport.

“The design and layout are acceptable and the proposal would not lead to any unacceptable impacts in respect of ecology, flooding, drainage, highways or surrounding amenity.”
