THE second phase of the Towcester Watermeadows was officially opened this week.

The ceremony on Monday, April 2, doubled the size of the public open space to around 60 acres and was attended by representatives from Towcester Town Council, South Northants Council, the West Northants Development Corporation, and Towcester Wildlife Trust.

The first phase was opened in April 2010 and together they will form the back drop to the wider Moat Lane regeneration project, which includes retail, office space and a community building. The Watermeadows were once part of the Easton Neston Estate.

WNDC, which brought £7.5 million of investment to the regeneration and restoration of the Bury Mount and Watermeadows, handed back all remaining planning powers to SNC last week.
