Northampton Gateway – Stage 2 Consultation

Northampton Gateway is a strategic distribution site adjacent to Junction 15 of the M1.  As a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP) the planning process is a little different.  Stage 2 Statutory Public Consultation began on 9th October and lasts until 24 November.  You can find more information here:  www.northampton-gateway.co.uk​.

To enable that consultation, we h​​ave been working hard over the last few months, bringing all the proposals and assessments together, in effect as a planning application, with the Draft Environmental Statement and Transport Assessment submitted for public consultation.  A package of transport measures are proposed, including a major upgrade to J15, dualling of the A508, and bypass of Roade.Nothampton%20Gateway.png

Thoresby approved

We are very pleased to say that Newark & Sherwood District Council resolved to approve the redevelopment of Thoresby Colliery at last nights planning committee meeting.  Harworth Group’s proposal includes: 800 houses; 8 hectares of B1 and B2 employment use; a country park; primary school; and local centre​ containing a mix of leisure, retail, employment and community uses.

Our work began at an early stage as we worked with Nottinghamshire County Council to assess the Ollerton Roundabout on the A614, moved through Local Plan promotion with Pegasus Group, and then supported the planning application with a Transport Assessment and Travel Plan.  Team members Leonard Design Associates prepared the masterplan, SCP dealt with drainage, AES ecology, Bentley Project Management costs.

Appeal – Great Glen

On behalf of Miller Homes, we provided expert witness services, presenting evidence on highways mattters at the recent public inquiry against the refusal of an application for 170 houses on Oaks Road in Great Glen. While Harborough Borough Council offered no case in the end, the Parish Council and local objectors formed the Rule 6 Party and put up three highways witnesses. They also presented evidence on planning, landscape, the housing supply, drainage, and other matters. We await the Inspector’s report.
