Deetu, BWB’s sister company, is working closely with West Northamptonshire Council to amplify the future of Greyfriars in Northampton.
The site is located in the heart of Northampton town, next to the ongoing transformation of the historic Market Square and redevelopment of the former Marks and Spencer’s and BHS units, making it an ideal location for future projects.
Deetu has collaborated with Studio Egret West to gather views from the public on what the future of the site could look like. As part of this process, an interactive website has been developed to showcase the history of the location and the potential it holds for the local community.
Deetu has also produced online engagement tools to boost engagement and make it easier for local communities to use. You can have a look at the engagement tool here: ampnorthampton.com.
We look forward to hearing the local communities’ vital insights on what they believe the site should be used for.
Josh Dickerson, Engagement Lead at Deetu said:
“We already know that regenerating Greyfriars is immensely significant to the people of Northampton.
However, through engaging with the community and local stakeholders at this early stage, we want to hear the ideas of local people to inform the design moving forward and ensure the successful regeneration of the site.
This engagement provides an opportunity to foster genuine inclusivity and accurately represent the region, bringing the wider town along on this journey of transformation.”
