The Market Bosworth Neighbourhood Forum today submitted its response to Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council in respect of the application to build up to 65 dwellings on the North Side of Station Road (to the left of the Golf Course entrance) The response can be summarised as:

It is the considered opinion of the Market Bosworth Neighbourhood Forum, the group designated to producing a Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP), that the planning application by Charles Church to develop a site on the north side of Station Road in Market Bosworth is premature. The Market Bosworth Neighbourhood Forum is considering more than one site allocation and is in the process of engaging with the residents and stakeholders to assess preference. Consideration will be given to criteria such as the potential to provide housing, expansion of employment opportunities and community facilities without a detrimental impact on the character of the neighbourhood, whilst meeting the needs of a sustainable Key Rural Centre through to 2026.
