Wellingborough and Rushden MP Peter Bone has called on Communities Secretary Eric Pickles to give the £50m Rushden Lakes plans the green light.

With the decision on whether the development takes place due on or around Thursday, February 13, Mr Bone said: “This is an extremely important development for my constituency and local people are overwhelmingly in favour of the development.

“Councils within this community have also supported the proposals full heartedly.

“I hope that the Secretary of State for Local Government and Communities [Eric Pickles] gives the green light to this excellent scheme.”
