Housing Supplementary Planning Document (Draft for Consultation 27 January 2021 – 26 February 2021)

Posted: Wed, 27 Jan 2021 09:04 by Stephanie Campbell

Issued by South Northants Council

The Housing Supplementary Planning Document has been prepared to add supporting detail to the existing housing policies contained in the South Northamptonshire Part 2 Local Plan (adopted 22 July 2020). More »

It takes into account relevant strategies and policies including the National Planning Policy Framework, National Planning Practice Guidance, housing market intelligence and other relevant guidance, thereby providing advice on housing matters within a local planning context.

As such, the Local Planning Authority is undertaking a period of public consultation on the document in anticipation of its future adoption as a supplementary planning document that would carry some weight as a material planning consideration in the determination of planning applications for housing development within South Northamptonshire. You are therefore encouraged to comment as necessary.

The document can be viewed on the council's website at:
