A major development in Brackley which will see more than £500,000 invested into the town and 1,000 new jobs created is one step closer after final planning permission was granted.

Following South Northamptonshire councillors approving the Network 401 proposal in October, a legal agreement has now been signed and work to build a Sainsbury’s food store and petrol station, the long awaited replacement for Brackley’s Cottage Hospital and a 70-bedroom hotel could start in the autumn.

Peter Rawlinson, Brackley mayor and vice-chairman of South Northamptonshire Council, said: “I am delighted that the planning permissions for this major development have been issued. The development will significant improve Brackley providing facilities for the residents and many employment opportunities.”

The development will see contributions of £350,000 made towards the Brackley Town Fund and Town Centre Management and £200,000 towards public transport and off-site highway improvements.
