Planning new communities like Hanwood Park

Planning ensures that the right development happens in the right place at the right time, benefitting communities and the economy.

The development of Hanwood Park has been planned over a period of almost 20 years, since Kettering was identified as a growth town in the East Midlands Regional Plan back in 2005.

Hanwood Park has been carefully planned from the outset, to blend with the surrounding rural and urban environments. Engagement with local residents, businesses, and stakeholders form part of this planning process, to help improve the quality of the development.
