More homes could be built in Daventry area

CHANGES to plans which could lead to thousands of extra homes being built in the Daventry district will be discussed tonight (Thursday).

Members of Daventry District Council’s (DDC) strategy will be discussing a new version of the West Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy which is proposing even more homes for the town and the rural areas.

The document, which has been drawn up by DDC, South Northamptonshire and Northampton Borough Council’s to promote growth in the local area, states that by 2026 there will be 2,000 homes built on land known as Churchfields which is to the east of Daventry Country Park. This is a reduction from 2,500 homes which has been used in previous drafts of the documents.

Due to this reduction, it is now proposed there will be 1,355 new homes built in the rural areas of the Daventry district by 2026.
