We are currently drawing up proposals for a new development of 123 homes on land off Berrywood Drive in Upton.
The site is the final parcel of land to be released from the wider St Crispin’s Hospital development site. Outline planning permission was granted in November 2002 for the redevelopment of the former St Crispin’s Hospital site for a mix of uses including residential, employment and community.
The site forms part of the Northampton Norwood Farm/Upton Lodge Sustainable Urban Extension which is allocated for a mixed-use development comprising 3,500 dwellings in the West Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy. This establishes the principle of housing development in this location.
As the principle of development is established by the Joint Core Strategy, we are preparing to submit a full planning application for our proposed development. This means that detailed matters such as property design, layout and landscaping will be submitted as part of the application.
Under our proposals, a proportion of the new homes will be provided as affordable housing, for local people in housing need.
You can provide us with your feedback by emailing us at UptonLodge@webbpr.net.
The comments we receive from local residents will help us to refine our emerging plans before we finalise and submit a detailed planning application to Northampton Borough Council in due course.
