130 new homes have been approved for development in Oundle, near Peterborough.
The plans drawn up by Bovis Homes were approved by the North Northamptonshire Council Area Planning Committee in February.
The 16-acre site will feature 130 new homes and four self-build plots.
Where is the new housing development in Oundle?
The new housing development will be constructed at Cotterstock Meadows, on the plot of land to the east of Cotterstock Road and to the west of the River Nene.
Breakdown of the development
- 74 private sale homes
- 52 affordable homes (rent or shared ownership)

A family-friendly development, the private homes will include a mix of two, three, four and five-bedroom homes. Construction is set to go ahead later this year, with homes expected to go on sale as early as summer 2022.
