22.75 Ha of land is proposed for employment uses in the north of the site. This area will provide employment opportunities for residents and those living within the wider vicinity.
The employment land will benefit from easy access to the A6. The delivery of this area alongside the two local centres, schools and wider community uses will enable a range of new job opportunities.

There will be a primary school located in the north of the development and a secondary and primary school located within the south of the development.
Two, mixed-use, local centres will complement existing local facilities and services in Rushden and Higham Ferrers. They will include retail, health, community and residential uses. The northern local centre will provide retail opportunities close to the northern primary school and employment land.
