A new school, park and community centre will be built in Brackley by the end of 2018, after details of another phase of the Brackley housing expansion were approved.

In 2010 outline planning permission was granted for 1,000 new homes on the northern outskirts of Brackley, including a new primary school, a central park and a community hall.

Since then around 320 homes have been occupied and sales have been agreed on a further 155 homes.

On Thursday, 15 June South Northamptonshire Council’s (SNC) planning committee approved the layout, appearance, access and landscaping for a further 137 homes.

Cllr Roger Clarke, SNC’s portfolio holder for planning and environment said: “We have previously agreed the details of a park which should be open this year, work on the community building should start this year and Northants County Council have granted full permission of the new primary school which will be open for  a new in take in 2018.

“Details approved for this latest phase includes 31 affordable homes, 19 of which will be two bed homes which we know are in high demand by local people.”

In addition to the community infrastructure and affordable homes it is estimated the development will generate around £670,564 in New Homes Bonus over four years, money that will be made available to the community for a wide range of SNC grant funded projects.
