Adoption of Local Plan
On Wednesday 22 July 2020 South Northamptonshire Council resolved to adopt the South Northamptonshire Local Plan (Part 2) 2011-2029 at its meeting of Full Council. Building on the West Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy (WNJCS) which was adopted in December 2014, it was prepared to help further guide planning decisions in the area and forms part of the Development Plan for the District, along with the WNJS and "made" neighbourhood plans.
The Local Plan (Part 2) replaces all of the remaining saved policies of the 1997 South Northamptonshire Local Plan and supersedes Policy H2 and Policy H6 of the WNJCS.
As the current restrictions associated with the Covid-19 pandemic remain in effect, it is not possible for the Council to deposit at its offices or elsewhere hard copies of the adopted South Northamptonshire Local Plan. In light of these circumstances, the Council has adopted additional measures to address the consequences of this unavoidable situation and ensure local people continue to be made aware of the progress of the local plan process and have access to documents associated with it.
