Campaigners protesting against a housing development in Northamptonshire have formed a residents’ association to help fight the plans.

Developers want to build 450 homes on land to the north of Lang Farm estate in Daventry.

Chris Humphreys, chairman of the newly-formed Langs Farm Residents’ Association, said the town was already being affected by development on the Middlemore estate, the Monksmoor estate and the proposed Church Fields estate of about 2,000 homes.

He said: “We need the voice of Daventry residents to be heard. This is about everyone’s quality of life in the town, making sure infrastructure is in place before building more houses, that we pace new sites to evolve the town - not destroy it’s character overnight or turn it into a huge building site.

“If building proposals are allowed to go ahead, it will push local infrastructure and services to breaking point,” he added.

The developers of Mickle Well Park are holding a public consultation day at the iCon Centre in Daventry on Saturday July 26 at 10.45am.

Vice-chairman of Langs Farm Residents’ Association, Miranda Joseph, urged as many people as possible to attend the day.

““This meeting is a vital step towards protecting our town from becoming just one very large housing estate. Show your support by liking and sharing the action group’s Facebook page. We need the local residents to unite and have a say in the future of our town and living environment,” she said.
