Current planning applications

Applications by area:

The county council are responsible for the determination of minerals and waste planning applications, and proposals for developments for and by the County Council developments (Regulation 3 of the Town and Country Planning Regulations 1992) within Northamptonshire. Examples include:

  • Minerals: (e.g. quarries, and related restoration schemes)
  • Waste: (e.g. waste processing facilities)
  • Regulation 3: (e.g. libraries, county council-run schools, new major road schemes, county council-owned listed buildings)

Decisions on planning applications are made either by the Development Control Committee or by council officers under delegated powers.

All other planning proposals and applications (including housing) are dealt with by the local district and borough councils. If you are unsure about who is responsible for determining a particular type of planning application, please email us.

The following lists contain details of all outstanding planning applications currently being processed by the county council.

Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) scoping opinions

Before submitting a planning application, the applicant (or agent, where applicable) may wish to contact us for a formal opinion on which information to supply in the Environmental Statement (or 'ES') - this is called a 'scoping opinion'. This allows the applicant/agent to be clear about what the we consider the main effects of the development are likely to be and, therefore, the areas on which the ES should focus.

If we decide that further information is required to be able to adopt a scoping opinion, we will ask the applicant/agent to provide it. Consultation bodies and the applicant or agent will be consulted before adopting its scoping opinion.

We must adopt a scoping opinion within 5 weeks of receiving a request (or, where relevant, of adopting a screening opinion). This period may be extended if the authority and applicant or agent agree in writing.

The scoping opinion must be kept available for public inspection for 2 years (including documents submitted by the applicant/agent as part of the request).
