Site Specific Part 2 Local Plan

The Site Specific Proposals LDD, now entitled the Site Specific Part 2 Local Plan, when adopted will form part of the North Northamptonshire Local Plan. The document will cover the whole of Kettering Borough with the exception of issues addressed in the North Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy (JCS) and the Area Action Plan for Kettering Town Centre.

This document will explore the allocation of land for housing, employment, retail, leisure and community facilities and will contain policies relating to specific areas such as Rothwell, Desborough and Burton Latimer towns centres and topics such as protection of the open countryside and protection of environmental assets.

Progress with this Plan has been delayed whilst advancing the Joint Core Strategy Part 1 Local Plan to adoption.

The Joint Core Strategy was adopted on 14th July 2016, the timescale for the progress to date and programme going forward is set out below.

The Council's current LDS sets a consultation for November/December 2017.  This has been delayed and a new programme of dates taking the plan to adoption has not yet been agreed, however it is anticipated the draft plan will be available for consultation in Spring 2018.
