Draft Supplementary Planning Documents consultation August - October 2019

We have prepared three draft Supplementary Planning Documents (SPD) in respect of houses in multiple occupation, parking and specialist housing, which will add further detail to the policies in the Development Plan for Northampton and provide guidance to applicants and developers in each of these areas.

We will invite responses between 8 August and 3 October 2019 (5pm), which can be made through the links below.  

Links to download the documents are also below. Paper copies are available to view at the One Stop Shop at the Guildhall, St Giles Square, Northampton NN1 1DE, local libraries, parish council offices and neighbourhood forum venues in Northampton during normal opening hours.

Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO) SPD

This SPD provides guidance to manage the concentration and impacts of HMOs. It is intended to replace the existing Interim Planning Policy Statement.

Parking Standards SPD

This SPD applies Northamptonshire County Council's latest parking standards but expands upon them to incorporate specific guidance to address parking issues in Northampton, including the need to provide infrastructure for charging electric vehicles.

Specialist Housing SPD

This SPD addresses housing needs for older people and disabled people and provides guidance to ensure new provision is desirable, suitable and in the right locations.
