Waterside Campus Master plan

Midsummer Meadow car park will be closed from 20 July for around 12 months to allow for the building of a bridge that will link the University of Northampton’s new waterside campus to the town centre.

Notices have gone up in Midsummer Meadow car park to let motorists know of the planned closure.  Motorists who usually use this car park are being advised to use any one of the town’s other car parks from 20 July; St John’s and St Michael’s multi storey car parks are the nearest alternatives.

Councillor Tim Hadland, Northampton Borough Council cabinet member for regeneration, enterprise and planning, said: “The new university campus is the most exciting development for Northampton for many years and it has a pivotal role in the Northampton Alive programme of regeneration that is currently transforming the town.  Another major step forward.”

If anyone has any questions about the temporary closure of the car park they can call Northampton Borough Council on 01604 838953.  For information on parking available in Northampton visit
