A second public consultation on plans for a major new housing development in Lubbesthorpe has been extended by three weeks.
The Chairman of Enderby Parish Council, Mrs. Sylvia Conway, recently called a Public Meeting to be held at the Civic Centre, King Street, Enderby (Small Hall), at 7:30pm on Wednesday, 20th June 2012, to discuss Planning Application 11/0100/1/OX submitted by Hallam Land Management, Barratt, David Wilson Homes and Davidson Developments.
Originally the six week consultation (started on May 23) was due to end on July 4 but parish councils and residents asked for more time to respond so Blaby District Council has agreed to move the closing date back to July 25.
The Highways Agency – who are responsible for the M1 and other access roads around the proposed site – have also requested more information from the developers, which means the planning application is unlikely to be determined before September.
The plans for 4,250 homes, shops, schools, community facilities, public open space, two motorway bridges (across the M1 and M69) and 21 hectares of employment land were first submitted in February 2011 by Hallam Land Management, Barratt and David Wilson Homes and Davidson Developments.
Several changes have been made to the original plans including revised locations for the district centre, one of the local centres and one of the primary schools. Designs for the bridges across the M1 and M69 have also been amended. New proposals for an additional 4,600 sq metre employment site are also included in the revised plans.
New and updated documents have also been submitted by the applicants providing information on traffic, transport and air quality.
More than 8,000 letters have been sent to people living in parts of Enderby, Kirby Muxloe, BraunstoneTown and Leicester Forest East and all residents in Thorpe Astley and Lubbesthorpe, explaining where they can view the revised planning application and how to comment.
The revised plans are available to view online at www.blaby.gov.uk/lubbesthorpe and in libraries and parish council offices in the following locations:
•Leicester Forest East
Copies are also available to view at Blaby District Council’s main offices in Narborough and Glenfield Library.
Comments can be made online at www.blaby.gov.uk/lubbesthorpe, by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or in writing to the Lubbesthorpe Planning Application Team at Blaby District Council.
The consultation now ends on 25th July 2012.
