Settlements and Countryside Local Plan (Part 2) for Daventry District 2011-2029


On Thursday 20th February 2020 Daventry District Council resolved to adopt the Settlements and Countryside (Part 2) Local Plan 2011-2029 at its meeting of Full Council. Building on the West Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy (WNJCS) which was adopted in December 2014, it was prepared to help further guide planning decisions in the area and forms part of the Development Plan for the District, along with the WNJS and "made" neighbourhood plans.

The Part 2 Local Plan replaces all of the remaining saved policies of the 1997 Daventry District Local Plan and supersedes policy H6 of the WNJCS.

The Part 2 Local Plan, Policies Map, Adoption Statement and the Sustainability Appraisal documents can be viewed via the following links:

The Council has produced a number of resources to help applicants:

  • Applicant'sToolkit - assists applicants to assess their proposal against some of the policies in the plan (HO8 housing mix, space and accessibility standards and CW2 open space standards). Applicants are encouraged to complete the toolkit and submit it as part of their application.
  • Daventry Landscape Capacity Assessment Toolkit - a step by step guide to undertaking a landscape capacity assessment including how to interpret the Daventry Landscape Character Assessment as it relates to specific sites.
