Sensitive design around a scheduled ancient monument

Moat Lane is a residential-led, mixed-use 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) in the historic UK town of Towcester, Northamptonshire.

Diverse and sustainable uses and amenities

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.

Designed appropriately for a conservation area

The Moat Lane area lies within the Towcester Conservation Area and includes several listed buildings, the scheduled ancient monument and registered parkland. The 50,000m² scheme has been carefully designed to ensure that all these elements are treated appropriately.

In-depth community liaison

The Chapman Taylor-delivered masterplan, designed in close liaison with local groups and relevant authorities, provides the Roman market town with new economic, social and community infrastructure which will help ensure the sustainability of the scheme for decades to come.

Chapman Taylor masterplanned the heritage-sensitive Moat Lane mixed-use regeneration scheme for Morgan Sindall and South (now West) Northamptonshire Council.
