North Northamptonshire Retail Capacity Study- 2012 Update (May 2012)

The North Northamptonshire Retail Capacity Study presented a revised assessment of the quantum of additional comparison and convenience floorspace which is required across North Northamptonshire in the period to 2031. The update was informed by a new household telephone survey of the shopping patterns of residents of the North Northamptonshire Catchment Area (NNCA), which was undertaken between April and May 2010. The report takes into account the effect of major retail developments both within region (such as the development of Willow Place Phase I in Corby) and in the wider sub-region.

 

Subsequent to the publication of the NNRCS, revised forecasts of population and housing growth in the NNGA have been published by the NNJPU. In addition, following publication of the NNRCS, a number of new statistical inputs which inform the retail capacity forecasts have become available, and this update report factors in this new information. We discuss these revised inputs further in Section 3 of this report.

 

The figures in this update report therefore supersede those set out in Sections 7 and 8 f the NNRCS. The terms of reference for this update report do not extend to the other matters discussed in the NNRCS and therefore the findings of this update should be considered alongside the wider conclusions and recommendations set out in the NNRCS. In particular, the findings of the report assume that the spatial distribution of new floorspace will remain unchanged from that set out in Section 10 of the NNRCS (which in turn reflected the North distribution in the 2005 and 2006 studies, which was carried forward into the NNJPU’s Joint Core Strategy).
