Roxhill Update

Roxhill is now consulting South Northamptonshire District Council, Northampton Borough Council, and Northamptonshire County Council on a Statement of Community Consultation (SoCC). A SoCC is required as part of the NSIP procedure to set out how the Applicant intends to consult with the community as part of the statutory consultation process. In preparing the SoCC the Applicant is required to seek views and comments from the local authorities (they have 28 days to provide any comments). Once finalised the SoCC will be posted on the Northampton Gateway project website.

Environmental Statement ‘Scoping’ Report submitted to PINS

The ‘ES Scoping Report’ was submitted to the Planning Inspectorate (PINS) on 20th October. The report sets out the intended scope of work and assessments for the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), and builds on the ES Scoping exercise undertaken in 2014 associated with earlier development proposals in this location. PINS will now assess the Scoping Report and consult with all relevant statutory consultees, including the local authorities, many of whom have already provided input regarding the various environmental and other assessments direct to the applicant. A formal response will be prepared by PINS and published within 6 weeks of receipt of the Scoping Report.
