Planning Permission Granted

Planning permission has been granted to build 20 affordable homes on the former St James Works Site

The proposed development of 20 affordable homes was approved unanimously by the Northampton Borough Council planning committee yesterday, 7th May 2019. The application was for the demolition of the former St James Works building, on Vicarage Road.

Our director, Dominic Kramer, is a former resident of St James and declared at the meeting that it would have been ‘shameful’ for him not to bring the site back into use. During the meeting, it was noted that the demolition of the site will take place in the summer to avoid disturbing the St James C Of E Primary School.

The committee were impressed with the proposed development; Cllr Cathrine Russell praised the ‘sensitive and refreshing’ design that has been created by Morton Wykes Kramer. Cllr Brian Oldham added, the redevelopment was ‘long overdue’.

We are excited to see the transformation of the site, which will provide 20 affordable homes for people of Northampton.
