New video shows plans for Rowtree Park

14 July 2017

A new video has been released showing how proposals for up to 1,000 new homes at Rowtree Park in Northamptonshire could look.

The site, off Rowtree Road on the southern edge of Northampton, was granted outline planning permission in August 2016, and includes plans for local shopping and community facilities, a new primary school and extensive public open space. The site is also allocated for development in the Local Plan (the West Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy).

Bovis Homes is currently gathering feedback from the local community on the detail of these landscape-led plans, ahead of submitting a reserved matters planning application.

The masterplan for the site, has benefited from the involvement of Northampton Borough Council officers and a broad ranging stakeholder group, representing a number of local interests. It has also been the subject of two positive design reviews by Opun (the independent design review service for the East Midlands).

It includes plans for a network of green spaces, including new parkland, sports pitches, children's play areas, allotments, leisure routes and ecological areas, together with a re-configuration and extension of Collingtree Park Golf Course.
