Kettering High Street Heritage Action Zone
Enhancement of the historic environment will have a positive impact on the visual appearance of conservation areas while keeping their unique character.
This Medieval market town expanded rapidly in the later 19th Century, due to the growth of the boot and shoe industry, the high street is therefore a great combination of the Medieval church and pre-industrial buildings with the Victorian infrastructure developed to serve this prosperous community.
Many of the town's buildings are historically and architecturally important as they were designed by John Alfred Gotch, the first president of the RIBA to come from outside London.
How the Kettering High Street Heritage Action Zone will help
A widespread approach to the conservation areas will have a positive impact on the visual appearance and safeguarding the character of properties in the future.
