I think the market square itself needs a facelift – market stalls look run down and there isn’t a focal point of the area. Flowers, a fountain and a facelift for the front of the shopping centre would all help. Secondly there needs to be some incentives for developers to renovate all the abandoned factories around Hunter Street/Overstone Road etc. It would help bring those areas up and also bring more people into Northampton to spend money just 2 min walk away. We need people to want to live here by improving the curb appeal which should bring money in to be spent reducing the amount of shop and restaurant closures happening so often at the moment.
