Daventry Town Centre Vision 2035
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.
What is the Daventry Town Centre Vision?
Work on the vision 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.
Daventry District Council adopted the vision, at its last meeting, on 18th March 2021 following Daventry Town Council's adoption of the vision at a Special Meeting on 15th March 2021.
