The site will provide residents with a mix of high quality market, shared-ownership and affordable rented homes.

The development will comprise of 600 properties, including provision for 180 affordable homes, education, health and sports facilities and dedicated open space.

Outline planning permission was granted on 6 August 2019 following the completion of a S106 Agreement which secures affordable homes and funding towards the provision of local facilities and highway improvements.  

A series of reserved matters applications setting out the detailed planning and design issues for each phase of the development will need to be approved by the council prior to development starting on site. The first of these reserved matters applications must be made within three years of the date of permission being granted.  

The Leader of the Borough Council of Wellingborough, Cllr Martin Griffiths, said: “The development will contribute towards Wellingborough’s expanding growth by providing much needed homes for residents, as well as infrastructure and local facilities for the community. We look forward to continuing to work with partners to review the next stages of this development, and seeing this future community take shape.”
