Northampton Market

Regeneration works continue to transform Northampton’s Market Square

The build to transform Northampton’s Market Square into a community space and deliver a revitalized market for the town, is well underway.

Since our last update in May, West Northamptonshire Council and Stepnell Ltd have been working closely with Anglian Water to complete most of the works required for the surface water and drainage. The essential repairs to the Victorian brick sewer system are also nearing completion.

All works being carried out and delivered in conjunction with the watching archaeologists from Museum of London Archaeology (MOLA). They are working closely with the team to monitor the works as they make regular discoveries of varying significance.

Works continue across the site area to the central part of the square and the perimeter phase to the outside of the square.

Cllr Dan Lister, Cabinet Member for Economic Development, Town Centre Regeneration and Growth, said: “We are pleased to be working closely with MOLA and Stepnell to move ahead with the transformation of the historic market square located at the heart of Northampton town centre. Following an extensive programme of essential investigations, we are now well into delivering the next phase of works.

“We continue to work with Market Traders to encourage everyone to visit their stalls at the temporary market at Commercial Street. We are delivering a free summer events programme, where people can join the beach event and take part in mini golf and circus skills workshops. Head to our website to find out more.”
