Godwin moves swiftly to develop Rushden site

Rushden is to have a new petrol station with two drive through units on a prominent commercial site if plans by Midland-based residential and commercial developer Godwin Developments are approved.

A planning application has been submitted by Godwin Developments to East Northamptonshire Council for the 1.7 acre roundabout site located on the A6 bypass, close to Rushden town centre.

Godwin acquired the site in October 2018 and has moved swiftly to draw up plans for the location which is in an area of Rushden which is seeing significant important development.

Matthew Chandler, associate director at Godwin Developments, said: “In conjunction with our consultants, we have submitted a planning application within four months from exchange of contracts. We at Godwin believe this demonstrates our intent, agility and speed within this market.”

He added they hoped to announce an end user for the site in the Spring of 2019.

Godwin Developments is an established regional developer which currently has ongoing residential and commercial developments across the UK including retail and private sector schemes.

The company has offices in Birmingham, London and Nottingham.
