Details of a new development beside The Red Lion truck stop near junction 16 of the M1 have been agreed and will strengthen the South Northamptonshire economy further.
On Thursday, 12 April 2018 South Northamptonshire Council’s planning committee approved a reserved matters application for 165,600sqm of warehousing and an extension to the lorry park off the A4500 near Kislingbury.
Cllr Stephen Clarke, SNC’s portfolio holder for economic growth, regeneration and housing, said: “The South Northamptonshire economy comprises high performance technology, motorsport, logistics, and the food, drink and visitor sectors.
“Capitalising on the growing needs of the distribution sector, the strategic location of the district and easy access to the rest of the country this new development will support the local economy and provide jobs for people moving into South Northamptonshire.”
The proposals also include changes to the A4500 and the addition of two new roundabouts to provide access to the site.
The proposal was given outline permission in September 2016 and this decision agreed the appearance, landscaping, layout and scale for the first phase of development. Further phases will be considered under future reserved matters applications.
