Recognition for town centrepiece

THE centrepiece of Towcester’s Moat Lane development has received an award.

The renovated Bury Mount has been presented with a BALI award from the British Association of Landscape Industries. It was recognised in the land renewal and regeneration category.

Chris Garden, director of regeneration and development at the West Northants Development Corporation said: “The regeneration of the Moat Lane area will showcase the historic heart of Towcester alongside modern new facilities.

“The restored Bury Mount represents the first phase of the scheme, and has quickly become an important part of the town centre. It’s very pleasing to see that it has been recognised with this award.”
