SITE UPDATE - OCTOBER 2021

Catesby Estates are pleased to announce the sale of a 7.2 acre residential land site off Waters Lane, Middleton Cheney, Northamptonshire to Mulberry Homes.

The site has outline planning permission for 54 new homes including 50% affordable housing, along with new public open space and off site highways improvements.

For all new home enquiries, please contact Mulberry Homes directly. 

PLANNING POLICY

At the local level the Part 1 West Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy is now more than 5 years old (having been adopted in December 2014 to cover the period to 2029) and its growth policies are considered out-of-date for planning purposes.  A review is underway to roll forward strategic policy to 2041 and the new growth levels will reflect the Governments new standard method for calculating housing requirements.  The joint planning authority for West Northamptonshire indicates that a minimum of 516 new dwellings per annum[1] will be required in the District over the new Local Plan period to 2041.  This represents a 47% increase beyond the current adopted Core Strategy requirement, which is in the region of 351 dwellings per annum.  

South Northamptonshire District Council is nearing conclusion of its Part 2 Local Plan which sets the local development management policies for the area. As it does not contain any housing allocations and will not therefore plug the gap whilst the Part 1 Local Plan review is being progressed.  

Middleton Cheney is identified as a Primary Service Village in the Part 2 Plan, reflecting its status as the most sustainable location beyond the two market towns of Towcester and Brackley.   To meet and maintain the Council’s 5-year housing supply from December 2019 onwards, additional homes are required. 

Middleton Cheney Parish Council is preparing its Neighbourhood Plan and it has indicated land may need to be allocated for housing to meet identified local needs of between 73 and 150 homes to 2029.  It is understood that greenfield sites will need to be identified to deliver additional housing for the village.
