A number of other studies to inform the Core Strategy have focused on the town centres, and on locations for growth. This study seeks to understand the urban structure of the towns in North Northamptonshire – the framework of existing streets and open spaces, and how they function and to use this to inform policy development for the revised Joint Core Strategy.

 

The Urban Structure Study examines the scope for greater sustainable movement through the towns. The way our communities are designed and laid out has a dramatic effect on our travel, and our travel affects our climate. The reason is simple: Transportation generates about a third of Northamptonshire’s carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, mostly through exhaust emissions from cars and trucks. Reducing the need to travel by car in the existing and new areas, putting shops and services in the most accessible places, and making the streets, squares and open spaces pleasant, safe and direct so that walking, cycling and public transport are an automatic choice would stem from well planned places.
