Have your say on housing in the district

South Northants Council has published a draft Housing Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) for public consultation.

The consultation runs from 27 January to 26 February 2021.

The SPD supports the requirements of the Council's Part 2 Local Plan (which was adopted July 2020), for market and affordable housing, specialist housing, self-build and custom house building.

The SPD will be used by planners, applicants, agents, investors and developers in conjunction with the policies contained in the Local Plan.

Councillor Phil Bignell, portfolio holder for planning said: "Good quality housing is vital. It is important that our housing market meets the needs of our communities, including the provision of a mix of housing to meet differing needs.

"South Northants Council is committed to addressing this by ensuring a sustained supply of new homes is provided as required by the Local Plan."

Once adopted, the SPD will be considered in the determination of planning applications.

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