Plans have been unveiled to build 14 bungalows and a community hall on green space in Northampton.

The proposals have been submitted by Northampton Partnership Homes to West Northamptonshire Council to build the homes in Montague Crescent, Rye Hill, which is just off of the Harlestone Road.

According to planning papers, the bungalows would be a mix of one and two-bed properties, and the community hall would have a two-bed flat on top of it.
