Settlements and Countryside Local Plan (Part 2) for Daventry District 2011-2029
Daventry District Council is in the process of preparing the Daventry District Settlements and Countryside (Part 2) Local Plan. This is a significant planning policy document, containing detailed guidance to help shape local decision-making on future planning issues.
Once adopted, it will set out where new homes could go to meet future housing need, as well as the best locations for new businesses, to create employment opportunities. It will help determine which areas should be protected from development and contains policies to protect the District’s distinctive landscapes, biodiversity and history, as well as its leisure facilities and green spaces.
It will also provide an update on the needs of Gypsies, Travellers and Travelling Showpeople, setting out the number of plots and pitches required over the next 12 years to meet the standards set by Government.
Examination of Part 2 Local Plan
Following a decision by Full Council on 6 December, the Council submitted the Part 2 Local Plan to the Secretary of State on 19 December 2018.
It must now be examined for soundness, and the Planning Inspectorate has appointed an Inspector, Gareth Wildgoose BSc (Hons) MSc MRTPI, to conduct the examination.
The Council has appointed a programme officer, Ian Kemp, who is an independent officer of the examination and will act as the contact for any person who has an interest in the examination and as a liaison between the inspector, Daventry District Council and representors.
The programme officer works on behalf of the inspector to organise and manage the administrative and procedural matters of the examination process. A draft Programme for the Hearings, together with Matters, Issues and Questions and a Guidance Note are now available.
