A Northamptonshire County Council spokesman said: “We have been in discussions with East Northamptonshire District Council about introducing no waiting at any time restrictions in some roads around Rushden Lakes to mitigate the potential impact of parking by staff and visitors to the new development. These restrictions would also ensure safe access to the site.

“We have consulted on the proposals and a decision will be made very shortly.

“Letters will then be sent out to anyone who has submitted comments through the public notice period.”
