The Persimmon Homes housing development at the north of Rothwell will provide 700 houses, and a direct access through a link road to the A6.
There was great concern about the specific route to be taken into and out of the site and a concerted effort involving local authorities and campaign groups. As part of the planning consent, all construction traffic should be routed through Desborough from the Market Harborough roundabout. Automatic Number Plate Recognition cameras are sited on the route to police this consent. Any suspected infringement is reported to the developers and on to the Town Councils.
