The planning officers are recommending that 39 houses are approved for Measham Rd and 29 houses for Top Street / Botts Lane. You can read their report on the NWL District Council Site by downloading the ‘Agenda Reports Pack’.
The decision will be made by the Planning Committee on 8th April 2014 at 4.30 p.m. in the District Council Offices in Coalville.
There are two things you can do at this stage:
1. Contact the elected councillors who are on the Planning Committee and who can refuse to follow the officers’ recommendation. You can find their contact details here – Councillors on planning cmttee Jan 2014. Phone or email them to explain your concerns. Also contact Richard Blunt (firstname.lastname@example.org or 01530 454510). He is not on the Planning Committee but is the councillor for Appleby and also leader of the Council.
2. You can attend the planning meeting to show your concern and talk to councillors as they go into the meeting.
The application for 25 houses on Church St / Bowley’s Lane has been recommended for rejection. Again this is a decision for councillors. The application for 60 houses on Top St / Didcott Way is not yet ready to come to committee.
