Northampton Waterside Enterprise Zone site access

Description of scheme

This scheme seeks to enable development in the 104 hectare Northampton Waterside Enterprise Zone by increasing the capacity of the congested southern inner ring road and by improving access to the site so that marketability of the development sites is enhanced. The St. Peter's Waterside site has capacity to deliver 43,000 square metres of high quality office space, including the £7.5m Innovation Centre and £20m Castle Station redevelopment that have already been built.

Works at Black Lion Hill adjacent to Northampton Castle railway station were completed in spring 2014 and works on Towcester Road, including Towcester Road/St Peter's Way roundabout in April 2015.

Work to complete the footways outside the Innovation Centre and railway station is currently on site and due to be completed by the end of May 2016.

The scheme will also encourage wider development opportunities in the Enterprise Zone and town centre.
