Paragraph 15.16

Factual correction.

Amend Paragraph 15.16 as follows:

“The land to the north of Turweston Road is a greenfield site currently in agricultural use. It has the potential to be a key gateway site into Brackley from the north and the A43. South Northamptonshire Council has resolved to granted outline planning permission for a business park development on the site, subject to the completion of a legal agreement. More recently the Council has resolved to grant planning permission for an alternative mixed use development. The proposed development comprises a new foodstore; petrol filling station ; 60 bed nursing care home (including the relocation of the Brackley Cottage Hospital’s 12 beds); a new Primary Care Centre facility including a new pharmacy ; employment development within Class B1, B2 and B8, and a hotel (Circa 70 beds) including a restaurant and bar. These uses fall within the definition of economic development set out in the National Planning Policy Framework and will provide new employment opportunities to support Brackley’s role as a Rural Service Centre. It is expected that the development of this part of the site will therefore come forward in the first phase of the plan period.”

Factual correction to reflect South Northamptonshire Council’s recent decision on a planning application submitted for a mixed use development on the land to the north of Turweston Road which forms part of the proposed Brackley East SUE
