Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council have approved Leicestershire County Council’s planning application for 55 dwellings on Barton Road in Barlestone. The application was supported by our Transport Statement. The tricky issue for us was the conflict between the desired retention of trees and hedgerow fronting the site, which obstructed the visibility splays and prevented the proposed footways. A solution was negotiated and we are pleased to see the application granted consent. Illustrative masterplan by Pegasus Group.
