Strategic projects, growth and regeneration

Kettering high street

Breathe new life into our town centres by revitalising buildings and helping to regenerate a vibrant place for locals, businesses and visitorsHistoric England's High Street Heritage Action Zones (HSHAZ) initiative

Historic England has worked with us and local residents to help:

  • restore historic buildings and put them back into use
  • improve conservation areas to kick-start regeneration
  • recognise ‘unsung’ places for their unique character and heritage

As well as improving our high street with new:

  • paving
  • plant features
  • seating

All to help make Kettering proud place to live, shop and have fun.


We want to continue getting your views so we can continue to make improvements including:

  • how you feel about Kettering town centre’s historic buildings
  • what physical improvements could be made to our town centre
  • your favourite historic building
  • how we can make the town centre look more welcoming and smart
