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 submitted in February 2011 by Hallam Land Management, Barratt David Wilson Homes and Davidson Developments and more than 1,500 people have already had their say on the proposals.

Blaby District Council have sent more than 8,000 letters to people living in parts of Enderby, Kirby Muxloe, Braunstone Town 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.

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.
