Whole street of Northampton houses to be knocked down for offices

Posted on by Offices.org.uk


ALL the residential homes in a Northampton Street will soon be knocked down to be replaced by offices.

The ten dwellings in Tanner Street, Northampton, are inside the Northampton Waterside Enterprise Zone and the West Northamptonshire Development Corporation (WNDC) was able to buy them using a Compulsory Purchase Order.

The WNDC Chief Executive Peter Mawson told a recent meeting that the properties would all be vacated soon, according to a report in the Northampton Chronicle.

“We’re starting to plan for the demolition of the properties in Tanner Street now. Within the next four to six weeks, all the properties in the street will be vacated,” the paper quotes him as saying.

The development agency plans 40,000 sqm of high quality office space in the Enterprise Zone, starting with a new £7.5 million innovation centre.
