The Moat Lane mixed-use regeneration scheme has completed in the historic UK town of Towcester, Northamptonshire. Moat Lane is a residential-led regeneration project which has been sensitively built around a scheduled ancient monument (the restored Bury Mount, the remains of an ancient motte and bailey castle).


The BREEAM Very Good development is designed to help regenerate Towcester High Street and the wider town centre, and includes a new community building, community space, offices, 132 homes and shops.


The Moat Lane area lies within the Towcester Conservation Area and includes several listed buildings, the schedules ancient monument and registered parkland. The fifty thousand square meter scheme has been carefully designed to ensure that all these elements are treated appropriately.
