Have Your say as we develop the Neighbourhood Plan

The Neighbourhood Plan is not something that is done to the local community - rather, it must reflect the views and opinions of local residents, businesses and other groups. BVPG is planning to hold a series of informal consultations starting in late August so keep your eye on this site for more information about this and other ways you can make your views known

Unwanted development proposal rejected!

HBBC’s Planning Committee overwhelmingly rejected the proposed housing development in front of the Golf Course at its meeting on Tuesday 25th May. Several councillors took the opportunity to explicitly express their support for Neighbourhood Plans and their frustration that they do not seem to be given appropriate weight in considering some planning applications.

Modification to the Neighbourhood Plan

An independent review of the Housing Needs for the period 2014-26 shows a figure of 108 new dwellings are needed in Market Bosworth throughout this timeframe. This is very similar to the original Plan’s figure of “100+” and we are delighted that this new definitive figure has enabled HBBC to modify our Neighbourhood Plan.
