Ashton Road Hartwell - Planning Appeal

Planning Application for 55 dwellings in Ashton Road, Hartwell – Planning Appeal

In May 2020 South Northants Council refused an application for a residential development on land north of Ashton Road, Hartwell. The developers are appealing the decision which will be heard by the Planning Inspectorate based in Bristol. The appeal will be determined on the basis of written representations. Anyone who wishes to comment can do so online at: More »


If you do not have access to the internet you can send comments to:

Simon Dunn, The Planning Inspectorate, Room 3C, Temple Quay House, 2 The Square, Bristol, BS1 6PN

All representations must be received by 31 December 2020 and MUST quote the appeal reference APP/Z2830/W/20/3256072

All documents can be found on the South Northants planning site South Northamptonshire Council (planning-register.co.uk) (Application reference S/2020/0157/MAO)

Following strongly expressed views at a public meeting last February, Hartwell Parish Council voted to oppose the development and used the services of an experienced planning consultant to make the case. On December 10, 2020 Hartwell Parish Council agreed to object to the appeal and the planning consultant has written a detailed letter on behalf of the Council which will be submitted to the Planning Inspectorate shortly.
