Leicestershire County Council have approved their planning application for the Melton Mowbray Distributor Road (MMDR). The northern and eastern bypass of Melton Mowbray has an important interface with work we are carrying out on behalf of Davidsons Developments. Junction 6 on Burton Road, at the southern end of the bypass, is common to the southern link road that is part of the Southern Sustainable Neighbourhood. Approval of the MMDR is therefore a very helpful step towards delivering the southern link road, and the development it enables. More detail available here.
