There is still time to comment on plans for 230 houses on the edge of a village.

Gladman Developments Ltd has applied for outline planning permission for up to 230 residential dwellings on land to the north of West Street in Stanwick.

They say it will be a mix of high quality housing types which will provide for varied local housing needs.

Access will be from West Street and the firm says it wants to integrate the proposed development into the surrounding residential area to create a ‘cohesive and unified residential quarter at the western extent of Stanwick.’

The scheme is due to be considered by East Northants Council’s development control committee on January 7, but the closing date for representation is tomorrow (November 29).

Hundreds of letters of objection have already been submitted to the council ahead of the meeting.

Amanda Roberts from Stanwick Village Residents’ Group, which is against the major development, said the group’s concerns include an increase in traffic, the effect on existing facilities as well as generating the need for more, and the impact on the environment and wildlife in that area.

Stanwick Parish Council considered the plans at a recent meeting and they voted unanimously against it.
