Barn Owl update 19-10-16-page-001

We disagreed with the sentiment of this statement from Northampton Borough Council’s press office dated 12/10/16 (click here). By allowing another convenience store it is highly likely that another building will become empty as our community can not sustain two convenience stores.


A planning application was submitted to Northampton Borough Council to convert the Barn Owl Public House into a Convenience Store. The planning application number is N/2015/1314.

To see the paperwork go to the Northampton Borough Council website

- select Search for a planning application

- enter N/2015/1314 in the reference number field

The applicant is Hawthorn Leisure who brought the Barn Owl from Green King in June 2014. They have an agreement with the Co-op to convert the site into a store.

Rectory Farm Residents Association has objected to this planning application.

You can no longer make comments on the planning application as 28 days have passed since the notice was published.
