The way has been cleared to begin work on a link road in Northampton to open up a new enterprise zone.

West Northamptonshire Development Corporation has agreed to compulsorily purchase land to enable the new Nunn Mills road to be built.

The road will provide access to the site designated for the new Waterside Enterprise Zone.

It will provide access to a brown-field development at the rear of the old power station and the Avon building.

However, West Northamptonshire Development Corporation said it could not yet announce how long the compulsory purchase process would take to complete.
