Enhancing public access
One of our key aims is to enhance public access in the area by providing new and improved links through green spaces that encourage more sustainable modes of travel and support health and wellbeing.
Currently, there is no public access to the site although a public footpath runs along the northern boundary. This route is currently unsurfaced and can be difficult to access.
We are proposing to deliver a high-quality pedestrian and cycle route within the northern landscape boundary of our site - using woodland and habitats to create an attractive environment and enhance links between Thrapston and Titchmarsh.
We are proposing enhanced signage and interesting features along the route that embrace both the wider landscape and environmental assets.
Within the wider site, we are proposing a network of pedestrian routes focused on health, wellbeing and education to provide a high-quality environment for those working on the park and those visiting the site.

Our proposals for a new roundabout on the A605 include provision of a safe crossing for pedestrians and cyclists. Additionally, our plans provide a high quality pedestrian and cycle route between Thrapston and Titchmarsh and would a valuable connection to the East Northamptonshire Greenway.
We have worked with North Northamptonshire Council and the Greenway Project to ensure that our proposals are full integrated into local plans and assist in the development, connectivity and usability of the Rights of Way network.
