Towcester plan for 2,750 homes to be considered

Thousands of homes could be built to the south of a Northamptonshire town under revised plans to be considered by a council.

The plan for Towcester Vale, first mooted in 2007, includes 2,750 homes as well as schools, shops, a medical centre, community centre and hotel.

Bloor Homes and Persimmon Homes reduced the number of homes by 250 following a consultation last year.

The application is open to comments from the public until 11 October.

The fresh plan, submitted to South Northamptonshire Council in August, includes a second primary school, a reconfigured design for a new relief road and "decreased employment space to reduce traffic".

The homes would be built between the A5 and A43, enclosing the village of Wood Burcote.
