Site Specific Part 2 Local Plan

The Site Specific Proposals LDD, now entitled the Site Specific Part 2 Local Plan (SSP2), when adopted will form part of the North Northamptonshire Development 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 allocate 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 Local Green Space, Green Infrastructure and Settlement Boundaries.
