Plans submitted for 1,600 new homes on the edge of Northampton

Plans to build up to 1,600 new homes and create eight hectares of employment space on the north eastern edge of Northampton have been formally submitted.

Housebuilder Davidsons Homes and property development and investment company L&Q Estates are seeking outline planning permission for the proposed development on land north of Overstone Green.

A decision is expected to be made by Daventry District Council in summer 2020.

The Overstone Green development, which is to be built on a 79.5 hectare site to the south of the A43 Kettering Road, is part of a wider project which will deliver a total of 3,500 new homes, ten hectares of employment land, a new primary school, convenience stores, health care facilities, a community centre, sport and leisure facilities and improvements to the transport and road infrastructure.

The scheme forms the northern part of the Northampton North Sustainable Urban Extension (SUE), the land having been allocated in the West Northamptonshire Joint Core Local Strategy Local Plan in 2014. Outline planning permission for the southern part of the project, which is set to comprise up to 2,000 homes, was granted in 2015.

James Burnham, Managing Director for Davidsons Homes South Midlands, said: “Overstone Green is an exciting project which will provide much-needed new homes for Northamptonshire in a convenient location with good access to a wide range of amenities and employment opportunities.

“We pride ourselves on creating beautifully crafted homes full of character which blend in with their surroundings. The homes at Overstone Green have been designed with modern family living in mind and will be suitable for a wide range of buyers.

“We have worked closely with L&Q Estates, Daventry District Council, Northamptonshire County Council, and other stakeholders to design a high quality development which will become a real asset to the local area and we look forward to bringing our plans to fruition.”

Richard Edwards, Group Planning Director at Warwick-based L&Q Estates, said: “Plans have now been formally submitted to develop this new community in Northamptonshire which as well as providing homes will create employment opportunities.

“This will be a sustainable development which will enhance the area and we are looking forward to continuing to work with all the partners involved in this exciting scheme to help it become a reality.”
