6:5 – a close call in Great Glen

Miller Homes’ resubmitted planning application for 170 dwellings at Oaks Road was approved at Harborough’s planning committee by a squeeky 6 votes to 5.  Considerable objections on every front by Hands Off Great Glen had to be rebutted over many months, following the refusal of the original application that has been scheduled for appeal by Public Inquiry in October.  Despite no objection from Leicestershire County Council, additional camera and journey time surveys were necessary to evidence the traffic conditions on Oaks Road and address objections on the basis of road safety due to parked cars.
