Northampton NN2 Postcode Profile

The Norhtampton NN2 postcode has seen quite a few changes over the last year or two. Firstly there was the closing of the Park Campus, which was home to the University of Northampton for the last few decades, when it moved to the new Waterside Campus, off the Bedford road.

The closure of this Campus, not only had a major impact on the area around Boughton Green Road, which was struggling to cope with the thousands of students all converging on the overstretched arterial road at the same time, but there has also been a major demographic change, which has not necessarily impacted property in a bad way, but it has changed demand for property.

As the university of Northampton grew in recent years, so did demand for accommodation for the students, who’s numbers had reached in excess of 10,000 by the time Park Campus closed, thanks to the University’s rising position in ranking over the last few years.

Since Park Campus moved to the Waterside Campus, which is just south east of the town centre, demand for student accommodation in the NN2 area has fallen. This may have initially had some impact on HMO property, but most of that has levelled out now and most of these properties have been re-entering the market as self contained units of family homes. On a positive note, the streets around the area have become noticeably calmer, as the sound of escited of students on their evening’s out is now a distant memory to local residents.

Over the last 12 months, there have been 464 sales with values rising a marginal 0.13% which has held up well against the price drops we have seen in other places.

The large scale building off the Welford road, just before the Bramptons, (NN6 Postcode) will also have a large impact on the Kingsthorpe area, as there are plans for the construction of a large number of properties, including the infrastructure to sustain them, but only time will tell how that will impact demand and subsequently prices.

University of Northampton ‘Tracking Students’ 24/7

University accused of using ‘sinister’ surveillance technology to track what websites its students are looking at

  • Vice-chancellor Nick Petford said its new Waterside campus ‘pretty much knows what you’re doing 24/7’ 
  • He said system could even draw ‘heat maps’ of where groups were congregating
  • He also explained the attendance of overseas students was being monitored

The Mail on Sunday reported…….

A university was last night accused of using ‘sinister’ surveillance technology to track students and check what websites they are looking at. Northampton University vice-chancellor Nick Petford told a conference in London last week that its new Waterside campus ‘pretty much knows what you’re doing 24/7’ thanks to its use of new technology.

Prof Petford said that the IT system at the campus could even draw ‘heat maps’ of where groups were congregating, based on which buildings students had accessed with their ID cards. He also explained that the attendance of overseas students at lectures was being monitored to check if they were obeying their visa requirements, and how the university kept an eye on every website visited by both staff and students in case they were accessing extremist material.

Northampton University was accused of using ‘sinister’ surveillance technology

Silkie Carlo, director of civil liberties group Big Brother Watch, told The Mail on Sunday: ‘This sinister surveillance campus is the horrifying result of institutionalising counter-terrorism and border control policies into public education.

‘Universities are supposed to be environments for freedom, exploration and learning, not security zones where students are constantly monitored.’

The University and College Union, the higher education trade union, said: ‘The insidious use of big data to monitor staff and students on campus risks creating a culture of mistrust.’

A spokesman for the university said that the Waterside campus did not monitor which individuals accessed particular websites, nor did it look at social media feeds. He also denied that website data would be sent to Prevent, the Government’s counter-radicalisation programme.

Comment:

The new waterside campus in Northampton sits by the side of the river Nene, which opened in September 2018 is an all new site, built from scratch. It is a shame that this sanctuary of learning is being used as an opportunity for further encroaching on people’s civil liberty.

One of the fundamental cornerstone of learning, is to raise questions, to refute established facts and theories, which is how mankind has advanced historically. The fact that they are being monitored, their online activity tracked and cross-checked, in case it is in contravention of the narrative, that is sad day for learning.

Northampton & Lamport Railway

Located just to the north of Northampton, the Northampton & Lamport Railway is a steam and heritage diesel tourist railway in the heart of the Northamptonshire countryside.

With approximately 1½ miles of running track alongside the Brampton Valley Way, a 14-mile linear park from Northampton to Market Harborough, you can not only ride one of their trains along the former line but walk along and watch the steam and diesel engines in action.
