DAVENTRY District Council (DDC) leader Chris Millar has been on the radio defending the controversial WaterSpace plans.
Cllr Millar was talking after a West Northamptonshire Development Corporation (WNDC) board meeting, which was held at the iCon building on Tuesday.
He told BBC Radio Northampton that people opposing he development need to think about the future of Daventry.
Mr Millar said: “I pointed out during the radio interview that people against the development may not realise the negative impact it could have on Daventry.
“For example if these plans don’t go ahead we wouldn’t have the new medical centre and a ne w home for the Phoenix Centre.
“We need this development to grow as a town and district and create a better future.”
