New homes, extensions and garages will be discussed at Daventry district’s planning meeting next week.

DDC’s planning committee will meet on Wednesday October 14 to decide on five applications.

In Staverton an application for land at The Beeches in The Green to demolish existing stables and construct a house has been recommended by planning officers for refusal due to the loss of important open space within the village’s conservation area.

An outline application to build two dwellings off Yew Tree Lane in Spratton has also been recommended for refusal, with officers saying the site lies outside the village confines.

At The Anchorage in George Lane, Long Buckby, there is an application to build a single storey side extension to form a tea room by the canal. Officers have recommended this for approval.

And in Woodford Halse an application to build a double garage at a property in Townsend has been recommended for approval despite objections from Woodford cum Membris Parish Council which said the plans represent an over-development of the site and that the planned garage is ‘excessive in size’.

The planning committee meets on Wednesday October 14 at 6.15pm at DDC’s Lodge Road offices.
