Both development proposals for the Greyfriars site in Northampton town centre will feature housing it has been revealed as the council prepares to put the plans on display next week.

Northampton Borough Council says two developers have put forward schemes to bring the fenced-off four-acre site, once home to the town’s bus station, back into use.

Both are mixed-use schemes that include a mix of “commercial and residential uses,” according to the authority.

The proposals will be put on display to the public from 12 noon on Monday, July 18, until 5.30pm on Wednesday, July 20, in the Court Room at the Guildhall.

Visitors will be able to see what the schemes could look like and will have a chance to leave comments, which will be fed back to the developers.

Final recommendations on which scheme will be taken forward are to be discussed by the council’s cabinet in September.

Councillor Tim Hadland, cabinet member for planning, regeneration and enterprise, said: “I am looking forward to putting these proposals for Greyfriars on display, and getting feedback.

“I hope as many people as possible will attend and share their views on the schemes.”

The display will be open at the following times:

Monday, July 18 from 12 noon until 5.30pm.

Tuesday, July 19 from 9am to 5.30pm.

Wednesday, July 20, from 9am until 5.30pm.
