Northampton enterprise zone approves £12m road

West Northampton Development Corporation has approved an application for a £12 million, 1.6km road that is part of a wider regeneration plan for the waterside area along the River Nene.

The road will link Bedford Road and Ransome Road near Northampton town centre, and is intended to facilitate the redevelopment of derelict land into a mixed-use scheme including a major commercial development and up to 1,400 new homes.

The redevelopment would happen across three brownfield sites, which currently house a disused factory, old power station and former landfill facility, and are part of Northampton’s Waterside Enterprise Zone.

WNDC’s director of regeneration and development Chris Garden said: “The Nunn Mills development road is part of a bigger picture for Northampton’s waterside area. Along with the infrastructure improvements already underway, it will support the transformation of derelict land into a landmark mixed-use scheme.”

A number of projects are already underway as part of the redevelopment including junction improvements and the construction of a new boating marina in Becket’s Park. The enterprise zone stretches from Sixfields to Brackmills and aims to transform the riverside area.
