Hanwood Park is our thriving new community – a place for everyone.

We want you to play your part in shaping Hanwood Park’s ongoing growth, and in helping to ensure that it continues to be a place where people want to live, work, and spend time.

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 forms part of this planning process, to help improve the quality of the development.

Tell us what’s important to you

Getting involved couldn’t be easier. We simply want you to give us feedback and tell us what’s important to you. What do you like most about Hanwood Park? What are you looking forward to?

We are currently planning the new district centre, so we’d like to hear what types of retailers and service providers you would like to see at Hanwood Park. Are you looking forward to having somewhere on your doorstep where you can meet friends for coffee, or are you more concerned about being able to book yourself in for a regular trim?

How would you like to use your outdoor spaces. Would you want to use outdoor gym equipment? We are planning new community facilities, what would you like to see come forward?
