Councillors to be briefed on Grosvenor Centre redevelopment plans

This week Borough Councillors will be meeting the Legal & General team responsible for preparing one of the town's biggest and most anticipated planning applications, the redevelopment of the Grosvenor Centre.

Every Councillor at the Guildhall has been invited to meet the Legal & General team to find out what will be happening over the next few months to prepare the planning application for submission by the end of the year. Councillors will also have an opportunity to ask questions and find out what steps will be taken to give residents and businesses the chance to have their say in the evolution of the scheme.

Next month Legal & General will start to hold public consultation events and make information available for everyone to comment on. The meeting with Councillors will help shape this process and agree the best way to manage the consultation process so everyone can get involved.

Councillor David Mackintosh, Leader of Northampton Borough Council said: "The redevelopment of the Grosvenor Centre is a key part in making our town a better place to live, work and visit. This project will be worth hundreds of millions of pounds and will create jobs and investment opportunities in our town centre. And, it is a real sign of confidence in Northampton that we are now only months away from a planning application."

Councillor Tim Hadland, Northampton Borough Council cabinet member for regeneration, enterprise and planning said: "The Grosvenor Centre was one of the most talked about projects at the Northampton Alive exhibition and everything is on course for designs and plans to be on show over the next few months as Legal & General finalise their plans."

A planning application is expected by the end of the year, and more details of the pre-application consultation will be announced in the next few weeks.
