Daventry urban extension - outline plans submitted

Pegasus Group have submitted the plans on behalf of David Wilson Homes South Midlands and Davidsons Developments Limited.

Daventry North East SUE is a 247-hectare allocated site in the adopted West Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy.

The development proposals include:

  • Circa 3,400 dwellings to include affordable housing
  • A new local centre (including convenience store, pub/restaurant, day nursery, community facilities and other facilities within Use
  • Class D1, and retail terrace)
  • An extension to Daventry Country Park
  • Two new primary schools
  • A site for a new secondary school
  • Elderly persons accommodation
  • Highway infrastructure (to include a realigned B4036 through the site)
  • New walking and cycling routes, structural greenspace, wildlife corridors
  • Associated landscaping, drainage and infrastructure works

Gary Lees, Executive Director at our East Midlands office, said: “The proposals have evolved as a result of an extensive public consultation exercise undertaken with stakeholders and the local community.”

“This included a series of public exhibitions in late 2016, regular pre-application discussions with Daventry District Council and Northamptonshire County Council, and following the completion of detailed technical studies, including Environmental Impact Assessment.”

The outline proposals are for the development to be delivered in four new phases over the next 20 years, with approximately 850 new homes built in each neighbourhood.

John Dillon, Managing Director at David Wilson Homes South Midlands, said: “We are very pleased to be part of this major project which will bring much needed, high quality new homes to the area.

“We have worked hard to get the proposals to this stage and look forward to working closely with the local authority and the local community throughout the planning process and beyond.”

James Burnham, Managing Director for Davidsons Homes South Midlands, said: “For a development of this size, especially one that is focused on sustainability, consulting with stakeholders and the local community plays a crucial role in developing proposals.

“At Davidsons Homes, we take our responsibility as placemakers seriously, and the plans that have been submitted to Daventry District Council reflect our commitment to quality.”

Daventry District Council are expected to make a decision on the application by the end of 2020.
