Plans to create a neighbourhood on the northern edge of Daventry, in Northamptonshire, have won the backing of Daventry District Council.

The site includes more than 11 hectares of green and landscaped spaces, incorporating sustainable urban drainage, allotments and wildlife habitats.

The proposal, brought forward by strategic land company Landform Estates and designed by architect and masterplanner JTP, forms the first detailed phase of a wider masterplan by the architect, which won outline planning consent in 2015.

This extends to the development of 450 homes, plus provision of a primary school site. The architect has also developed detailed designs for a 106-home scheme.

The green infrastructure framework will create connections to the countryside and include space for woodland and wetland habitats, recreation and food production - including allotments and an orchard - to support a cohesive community, leave a positive impact on the environment and encourage sustainable lifestyles. 

Said JTP partner Graeme Phillips: "From the beginning of our involvement on this site we have sought to address the challenge of establishing a new and growing community on the northern edge of Daventry. This has been done through thoughtful design that creates points of focus and interaction - whilst reaching out to public open space, routes and landscape beyond.

"It is this access to shared and welcoming outdoor environments that will help stitch Mickle Well Park into the wider fabric of the town.
