Sixfields, the main entry point to Northampton from the west, is central to a number of major new regional housing initiatives including Upton Urban Extension. It has a striking topography with exceptional views over important tracts of wetland amenity. Sixfields stadium is home to Northampton Town FC and other sporting facilities, there is also a strongly performing leisure district, as well as food and non-food retailing with B1 use around its northern fringe.
It is the natural focal point for a District Centre, recognised by emerging planning policy. Mountford Pigott’s clients, Capital & Provincial have substantial existing landholdings and have successfully enlisted the cooperation of the other landowners, principally English Partnerships to promote a holistic transformation of the area, totalling 27Ha.
Mountford Pigott's masterplanning services have included setting the vision; empowering negotiations; testing a number of approaches for intensifacation, movement and use patterns; and assisting the local authority to realise their strategic aims.
