North Town

North Town is situated to the east of Aldershot, close to the A331, and is one of the area's political wards. It takes its name from the main road, North Lane. Work began in 2009 on the £100m My North Town regeneration project, launched by First Wessex and Rushmoor Borough Council, to add hundreds of new homes to the area.
