SNC Statement on new Council building in Towcester's Moat Lane Development
South Northamptonshire Council is aware of some inaccurate statements being circulated with regards to its planned move to Moat Lane in 2014 – we would therefore like to set the record straight and have issued the following statement.
South Northamptonshire Council is refuting claims that a planned move to a new community building in the Moat Lane regeneration area of Towcester will not now go ahead.
Cllr Rebecca Breese, portfolio holder for planning and environment said: “Talks of the council pulling out of a move to Moat Lane are completely inaccurate and unfounded.
“With a project of this size, it was sensible to review it before detailed planning permission is sought – this is standard best practice in any business as it provides a reality check and an opportunity to ensure that every aspect is still suitable.
“Upon completion of the review, I can confirm that the size and space of the planned community building at Moat Lane is appropriate for intended use and that South Northamptonshire Council remains 100% committed to the move.”
