A new Aldi supermarket will open by early next year in a Northamptonshire village where hundreds of new homes are being built.

The supermarket chain will take over land that has been earmarked for a shop as part of the Overstone Leys 'sustainable urban extension', agreed in 2015, where hundred 2,000 homes, a school and care home are planned.

Planning permission was granted earlier this year, despite concerns from councillors relating to traffic and design.
