The first images of how one of the High Street shops heading to Rushden Lakes will look have been submitted to planners.

River Island has applied for permission to have its branding above the doors of its new store at the multi-million pound development, which is due to open next year.

The High Street name wants to put up three illuminated signs at its unit at the former Skew Bridge site just off the A45 at Rushden.

The image above shows how the illuminated signs will look on the front of the shop if approved by councillors.

The second image reveals where the store is located within the major retail and leisure scheme, which will also be home to big names including Marks & Spencer, Primark, H&M, House of Fraser and New Look.

Once finished, the 244-acre site will also have names including Joules, L’Occitane, Jigsaw, Phase Eight, Clarks, Tiger and Costa Coffee as well as numerous restaurants.

River Island will be one of several units in the site’s Northwalk, which leads up to the lakeside visitors centre and boathouse.

East Northants Council will consider the application by River Island for consent to display its advertising.
