Kettering General Hospital Local Development Order

On 22 August 2022 North Northamptonshire’s Strategic Planning Committee approved a Local Development Order (LDO) for Kettering General Hospital.

The LDO grants planning permission for specified types of development in specified zones within the hospital site.

It provides a mechanism through which less contentious development in defined areas is managed effectively, without the need for the submission of planning applications, and their determination, reducing the risk of overall scheme delay and providing a degree of flexibility for the Hospital Trust in the redevelopment of the hospital site.

Development outside of the zones, or not fulfilling the conditions specified, still requires the submission of a planning application.
