Plans to demolish the existing buildings and build a new prison in Wellingborough could be approved next week.
The replacement prison would have a capacity for approximately 1,600 adult males and built to hold category C inmates.
The Ministry of Justice (MOJ) has applied for outline planning permission for demolition of the existing buildings and construction of a prison within a secure perimeter fence with access, parking, energy centre, landscaping and associated engineering works.
It is also proposed to provide a temporary access for construction works from this location.
The plans have led to support as well as some objections from people living nearby.
While one commenter welcomed the jobs which would be created, a number of objectors have raised concerns, including the impact on local facilities, increased traffic and access.
