Planning approval for new leisure centre

Planning approval for new leisure centre

Posted: Thu, 23 Jan 2020 11:39 by Josie Flavell

A proposal for a new leisure centre in Moulton to serve residents in the east of Daventry District has secured planning permission.

Daventry District Council (DDC) wants to convert the Chris Moody Centre into a public leisure centre for use by the wider community.

And work is expected to start in the spring after a planning application was approved by the Council's Planning Committee last night (Wednesday 15 January). More »

The new-look centre will make use of the existing 25 metre swimming pool and two hydrotherapy pools, and will also feature a state-of-the-art fitness suite/gym, a group exercise studio, a spin studio and a health suite with steam room, sauna and spa pool. The car park will also be increased in size to 190 spaces, in order to accommodate the increase in its use.

Work on the new fitness suite/gym could start in the spring with a view to opening by late summer. The remainder of the works could then be completed by the end of this year.

Plans for a new leisure centre in the eastern part of Daventry District were identified as the top priority in the Council's Sports Facilities Investment Strategy, adopted last year following public consultation. The area is experiencing major population growth and more leisure facilities are needed.

Councillors agreed last month to use £8.5m of funding from local housing developer contributions to buy the Chris Moody Centre from Moulton College and convert it for this purpose.

The new facility will be run by Everyone Active, which also operates Daventry Leisure Centre on behalf of DDC.

The Council hopes the new plans for the centre will make it financially sustainable so it can be used for a wider range of health and fitness activities for the whole community.

DDC is keen for community sports activities to continue at the centre and discussions about the changes continue to take place with existing users, including Northampton Swimming Club.

Councillor Alan Hills, DDC's Community Culture and Leisure Portfolio Holder, said: "The new leisure centre will meet the needs of the growing population in the east of our District while providing a sustainable long-term solution for the site.

"We are very pleased to have secured planning permission for this exciting project and I look forward to working with our partners to bring it to fruition." » Less

Inspector’s final Local Plan report published

Inspector’s final Local Plan report published

Posted: Thu, 23 Jan 2020 08:24 by Josie Flavell

A major policy document produced to help shape Daventry District's future development is sound and complies with legal requirements, an independent examination has concluded.

Planning Inspector Gareth Wildgoose says the Daventry District Settlements and Countryside (Part 2) Local Plan provides an appropriate basis for the planning of the area, so long as a number of changes – known as main modifications – are made to it. More »

His final report, together with the recommended main modifications, was published on Friday (10 January) and will be considered by Daventry District councillors next month.

A decision on whether to adopt the Local Plan is due to be made at the meeting of Full Council on 20 February.

Developed by Daventry District Council and shaped by input from key stakeholders including local residents, parish councils and businesses, the Local Plan is a significant planning policy document containing detailed guidance to help shape decision-making on future planning issues.

The plan will be used to determine planning applications, and will supplement policies in the West Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy, adopted in 2014, as well as in Neighbourhood plans.

Submitted for examination in December 2018, it was scrutinised during a series of public hearings held last summer.
