Rugby councillors approve plans to expand DIRFT at Crick

Rugby borough councillors have given the go-ahead for DIRFT near Crick to be expanded.

The DIRFT II zone 3 expansion site, off the A428, will house a huge Sainsbury’s warehouse, as well as offices, parking and a rail link.

It is thought the expansion will create thousands of new jobs.

Talks were delayed last month after a last-minute objection from Tesco.
