Dozens of people turned out to take a look at proposals for more than 100 new houses.

A public exhibition saw nearly 100 people go along to see the plans by developers Hampton Brook for up to 102 new family homes on land to the south of Northampton Road in Wellingborough.

The event held at the Kingsway Centre allowed residents and stakeholders to view and comment on the draft plans.

Representatives from the development team were also at the event last Thursday to answer any questions.

A spokesman for Hampton Brook said: “We had a good turn-out and it was a great opportunity for us to meet with the residents, stakeholders and councillors and listen to their views.

“I want to thank all those who took the time to attend the exhibition and I hope that it proved informative.

“We are committed to working with local residents and councillors and we’re really pleased with the level of support received to date.

“We will review all the feedback received and look to incorporate this into our evolving plans where possible and appropriate.”

The proposed plans for the development on the western edge of Wellingborough are for two, three, four and five-bedroom houses, and it would include some affordable housing.

Vehicle access would be from Northampton Road.

The developer has said the scheme, if approved by Wellingborough Council, will deliver significant funding through the Government’s New Homes Bonus Scheme and would bring wider economic benefits to the area, including new jobs and increased support for local businesses.

Anyone wanting to comment on the proposals can do so by calling the project’s freephone information line on 0800 1488911 or by sending an email to info@meetingplacecommunications.com.

Feedback from the event will be considered by the developers, who have said they hope to submit the outline planning application in Spring 2015.
