Chip shop near two Northamptonshire schools rejected

Published

Planners have rejected a bid to open a fish and chip shop near two schools in Northamptonshire, because of fears it would undermine their health policies.

Plans were put forward to turn a disused corner shop in Rushden into a takeaway, but some residents claimed it would harm the health of children.

East Northamptonshire councillors on Wednesday night rejected the plan.

Campaigner Dorothy Maxwell said: "Our concerns are that children would go there rather than eat healthy food."
