A CONTROVERSIAL planning meeting left school campaigners fuming and saw the risk of a major employer pulling 400 jobs out of the town.

Daventry District Council approved two planning applications – one for 147 homes and one for 45 homes – on the 
Middlemore estate.

Residents say the 45 homes DDC wants to built on a site previously earmarked for educational puts their plans for a Free School at risk.

The application for 147 homes on the other side of the estate meanwhile saw a warning that DHL, one of the largest employers in the town, could withdraw from Daventry.
