West Hill, Kettering for Buccleuch & Various Developers


This sloping site was located alongside the A14 at Kettering. It was a difficult site that was sloping and was also exposed to high noise levels.

Working closely with the site’s landowner Buccleuch we helped to resurrect a stalled outline planning application for 450 dwellings. Liaising regularly with Kettering Borough Council  RDC produced a Design Code that tied the scheme into the established architectural style of the locality. Through careful layout design and close liaison with consultants we were able to produce a cohesive scheme that  solved noise, highways and levels issues.

Following the granting of the Outline Planning Consent we were pleased to then work on the Reserved Matters Planning Applications for various development parcels with Kier Living (now Tilia), Westleigh Developments and Grand Union on their affordable housing parcels.
