approved, at second time of asking

Working with Rosconn Strategic Land, we have supported their outline planning application for 80 dwellings on a site on the eastern edge of Desford, opposite Bosworth College on Leicester Lane.  The application first went to Hinckley & Bosworth’s planning committee in June 2019.  The members decided not to determine the application, and were minded to refuse it because the site sits outside the settlement boundary and would have been harmful to the character and appearance of the countryside.  Shortly afterwards, an appeal decision confirmed insufficient housing supply in the Borough.  The application therefore went back to the 23 July committee, and at the second time of asking it was approved – the presumption in favour of sustainable development allowing a decision other than in accordance with the development plan.  Our transport work assessed the local impact, but also defined a contribution towards a planned County Council scheme to alleviate long standing congestion at the A47 Desford Crossroads.
