Plans for a £45m redevelopment of a Northamptonshire town have been lodged.

The proposals for Towcester's Bury Mount area have been refined after a public consultation in September when more than 1,000 people expressed views.

They include shops and business premises, quality homes, open public space and a community building.

If the plans are approved, several public service providers will be housed in the community building, including South Northamptonshire Council.

The council will now look at the scheme, submitted by developer Morgan Sindall Investments.
