Rushden needs a place like that, I hope the government approve it.

I would suggest that they are without doubt some of the top ten retailers in Britain if not the World. It makes no sense at all. If they were to build a cinema complex, skating rink and a new swimming pool alongside the hotel I can see the logic.
It's going to be a little bit like Bicester Village (I think), with more clothing shops going there.

Cinema Complex etc is going where Nene Park is, and thats a fact!
Well its been 11 years since this post and nothing has been built on it yet. Is anything in the pipeline or will it just be kept as waste land?

The Old Nene Park site is on Flood Zone 3 land so large scale residential development was always going to be near on impossible. I doubt there is any appetite for retail/hospitality development so warehousing I suppose could be the most likely option, assuming the Planning Authority have any appetite for redevelopment given the aforementioned flood risk.

There was a review of this a couple of years ago, Conalgen Enterprises tried to get the zoning changed on the site. I think in the end the area of land the stadium used to sit on got downgraded but the rest of it stayed at zone 3. A google of Conalgen Enterprises SA planning permission will give you more information if you fancy reading the report.
