An initial application for houses North of Station Road was turned down in February this year (2014) for several reasons.
Members of the planning committee provided a number of reasons for its refusal. The developers have:
a) taken this outcome to appeal with an Inquiry scheduled for early September
b) submitted a new application, almost identical to the original, but with a proposal for 64 rather than 65 dwellings. This application is due to be heard at the Planning Meeting on August 19th 2014
The Forum has submitted the following letter outlining our concerns now we have reached such a significant point in the preparation of our Neighbourhood Plan. Our letter to the Planning Department can be viewed here NDP to application 14-00674-FUL
The revised application was refused by Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council on 5 March 2015.
