Strategic land-use planning in Northamptonshire is driven by the following documents:

  • North Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy (covering Corby, Kettering, Wellingborough and East Northamptonshire). This plan to 2031 was adopted in July 2016 (replacing an earlier plan adopted in 2008).
  • West Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy (covering Northampton, Daventry and South Northamptonshire). This plan to 2029 was adopted in December 2014. 
  • The Northamptonshire Minerals and Waste Local Plan (covering the whole county). This plan to 2032 was most recently adopted on 1 July 2017 (replacing the Local Plan adopted in October 2014).
