TOWNS FUND PROJECTS

Sixth Form College at Chisholm House – Chisholm House, will be re-purposed and renovated to be a carbon neutral building using the latest innovative technologies to bring this ground-breaking and modern building to the heart of the town centre. It will attract 16- to 18-year-old, young adults from the surrounding Northamptonshire area.

Multi-use Building – Located in the town centre area, this project is for a multi-purpose facility to provide permanent new accommodation for a modern Arts and Community Centre, as well as meet the identified demand for creative, media and the third sector uses. It will help to increase trips, pedestrian flows and spend across the town, and will improve the town’s overall permeability.
