Wellingborough finally starts building its town within a town

Stanton Cross, Wellingborough

Work has begun on the £900m mixed-use Stanton Cross scheme.

The £900m Stanton Cross development will be built in what has been described as the last infill site in the town and will, when complete, help to fulfil the long-term housing and employment needs of the area. 

Stanton Cross will effectively be a town within a town, comprising: 3,650 new homes; a 143-acre country park; two community centres; three schools; and a doctor’s surgery.

There is also the potential for up to 1m sq ft of industrial and logistics space and a further 300,000 sq ft of offices, retail and leisure. It is one of the most ambitious projects in the town for generations and the largest on Bovis’s books. So what do the two developers hope to achieve and in what timeframe? And what will this ‘town within a town’ do for Wellingborough once it is completed?
