The Northampton Local Plan Part 2 Proposed Submission was published for the second time for public consultation between 13 July and 5pm on 7 September 2020. The consultation is now closed.

The responses to this consultation can be viewed through the following link.

This Plan sets out the vision and objectives for Northampton Borough to 2029, and implements the strategy set out in the West Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy (Local Plan Part 1), which was adopted in 2014. It contains development management and site-specific policies, as well as site allocations showing where new developments should take place and which areas need to be protected and / or enhanced. Once adopted, the Northampton Local Plan Part 2, together with other development plans, will be used in the determination of planning applications.

This Proposed Submission Round 2 has been prepared in accordance with Regulation 19 of the Town and Country Planning (Local Development) (England) Regulations 2012. At this stage of the plan preparation process, we are  consulting for the second time on a Proposed Submission which we consider is ready for independent examination by the Planning Inspector. Comments are invited on the Plan’s soundness, legal compliance and compliance with the Duty to Co-operate before being formally submitted. The Statement of Representation Procedure Notice explains how your comments can be made and the grounds on which comments can be made.
