The Daventry district could be at less risk from speculative development following the publication of a new report.

Daventry District Council has published its Housing Land Availability report published earlier this week. Its conclusion is that there are 5.94 years of land in the Daventry area.

The area has been left open to housing developers as the council has been unable to demonstrate a five year housing land supply. However this should given further protection to the area. It also means that there is less of a buffer as well.

The report said: “This demonstrates that Daventry is not a district where there has been persistent underdelivery and therefore the 20 per cent buffer does not apply. Therefore the 5 per cent buffer has been added to the housing requirement.”

For more details see next week’s Daventry Express.
