Daventry Town Centre Vision 2035
What is the Daventry Town Centre Vision?
Work on the vision was started in March 2020, as Daventry District Council (DDC) recognised that the Town Centre Vision 2021 had reached the end of its intended period and the importance of adopting a Town Centre vision before Vesting Day of the new West Northamptonshire Council.
The Vision, although not a planning document, proposes to declutter and improve the public realm, improve pedestrian and cycle links to the Town, reduce traffic domination, introduce lighting, enhance the public open spaces to encourage growth of the night-time economy, re-location of the bus station to create a one-way system to give priority to pedestrians, develop land by the Police Station, West Court Car Park and Leisure Centre and a new leisure/arts/community facility on land by The Hollow.
Its adoption is key to providing a framework to help the new West Northamptonshire Council and Daventry Town Council attract the sort of investment it will need to develop and achieve the aims of the vision.

Adopted Vision for Daventry Town Centre’s Future Unveiled
A draft proposal for maximising the potential of Daventry town centre over the next 15 years has been unveiled. Daventry residents were encouraged to share their views on the proposals by visiting https://daventry2035.com
Based on public responses to a consultation held over the summer of 2020, the draft Daventry Town Centre Vision 2035 set out a range of measures that could be implemented to transform the centre as a destination for residents, visitors and businesses.
Led by Daventry District Council and ourselves the Daventry Town Centre Vision 2035 aims to create a framework for how the town centre can grow and evolve, to help attract investment and development.
The draft Vision was shaped by the views of more than 600 people who responded to a consultation held in the summer. It also included input from key stakeholders, including representatives from businesses, councils, and other organisations.
Feedback provided during this second phase of consultation was used to help create a Final Vision, which was voted on by councillors before it could be introduced.
Councillor Lynne Taylor, Mayor of Daventry, said: "I was heartened that so many people commented with their thoughtful views on the first draft of the Daventry Town Centre Vision 35 consultation. I urged our residents to contribute their views once more to refine the final vision, as this document will help to shape and define the future for Daventry."
People can also request a paper copy of the draft Vision by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by phoning Daventry Town Council on 01327 301246.
VISION STATEMENT: By 2035 Daventry Town Centre will continue to be the heart of the growing town and a distinctive destination.
Improvements to the overall offer of the town centre will be delivered through ongoing inclusive partnership working between the public sector, voluntary organisations, local businesses and the wider community.
Changes to the town centre will result in a town centre that is fit for the 21st Century with an improved environment for residents, visitors and businesses.
