An application has been submitted for a development of 1,000 homes to be built to the west of Collingtree, and on its golf course.
The plans, which have been submitted by Bovis Homes and Collingtree Park Golf Club, will see a mixture of one to five-bedroom homes, with 15 per cent being affordable housing.
There will also be a primary school, but no provision for secondary education.
Bovis Homes said there was also “no requirement” to provide primary health care facilities, as an expanded Danes Camp Surgery had the capacity to accept any patients moving to the development.
As some of the homes would be built on the golf course, the existing layout will be reconfigured.
A report on the proposals said: “The site will deliver up to 1,000 homes within a high quality, masterplanned scheme which seeks to set homes within a network of open green space and provide essential services within easy access.
“Collingtree Park Golf Course will be reconfigured to accommodate the proposed development and enhance the length and quality of the course.”
The Chron understands land to the west of the site is not included in the plan because Taylor Wimpey has an option on it. The 131-page report was due to be published on Northampton Borough Council’s website today.
