Exciting plans for family housing in Hunsbury

Plans to create 40 family apartments in East Hunsbury have been approved by Northampton Borough Council’s planning department. At a planning meeting on Tuesday 31st July, plans were approved for NPH to transform Overslade House, which is currently vacant single persons’ accommodation, into modern family homes.

The plans will involve structural alterations to the existing building:

  • Building a new third floor accommodation
  • Creating ground floor accommodation which include accessible homes designed for people with disabilities
  • Creating additional parking, including six accessible parking spaces by the entrance
  • Building a Children’s play area
  • Landscaping gardens, including raised beds and drying areas
  • Adding outside balconies on upper floors

Dave Pickard, NPH’s executive director of operations said of the plans:

 “There is a real shortage of family housing in Northampton and we have come up with a really modern scheme that includes private balconies or terraces for each apartment as well as communal outdoor space for children to play and families to come together. The location is ideal for families, with shops, schools and other services nearby with great public transport links.”
