Community Infrastructure Levy  

The Council is currently preparing for the introduction of a Community Infrastructure Levy. A consultation on the Draft Charging schedule took place from 26th June to 7th August 2014.  In December 2014 the Council resolved that the draft charging schedule could be submitted for examination. The documents were submitted on Friday 30th January 2015.  The date, which has been set, for the examination is 13 May 2015.

 

Frequently asked questions about the Levy and how it affects Developer and Householder applications can be found here.

 

Infrastructure and Developer Contributions Supplementary Planning Document

The Infrastructure and Developers Contributions SPD was adopted in October 2013. Some of the costs within the document will increase from 1st January 2015.  You can view the associated documents online.

 

Local Plans/Core Strategy and Daventry Settlements and Countryside Local Plan

The Joint Core Strategy (the West Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy Local Plan), was adopted by the Joint Strategic Planning Committee on 15th December 2014.  Together with the remaining saved policies from the Daventry District Local Plan, it now forms the Development Plan.  Further information can be found on the Joint Planning Unit website.   

 

This will be supplemented by policies in the Daventry Settlements and Countryside (part 2)  Local Plan. 

 

Supplementary Planning Documents/Guidance and Planning Briefs

These documents clarify and expand upon policies contained in the Local Plan.

 

Daventry 2040 Masterplan

A Masterplan has been prepared for Daventry Town. The Masterplan sets out a vision for

the town to 2040 and a framework for achieving that vision.

 

Annual Monitoring Reports

the Council is performing in implementing the Local Development Scheme (LDS), and progress

Daventry District Local Plan 1997

The Daventry District Local Plan was adopted in 1997. Some of the policies were saved by a Direction from the Secretary of State in 2007.  In December 2014 the West Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy was adopted and this replaced some of the saved policies. 

 

Further policies will be replaced in due course by Development Plan documents.

appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance.
