The Whittons Lane area is an important link to the heart of Moat Lane, leading directly to the new public square outside the Civic Building. Whittons Lane will be characterised by small shops, cafes and offices that will help to enliven the area and provide interest throughout the year. The block adjacent to Northampton Road will provide space for larger offices and shops. This will help to extend and link with the Watling Street to ensure that the Moat Lane area strengthens and adds value to the existing town centre.
The Moat Lane Masterplan is being updated and a revised application for the development will be submitted in Autumn 2012.
