Another appeal success. This time, we are pleased to report that Avant Homes’ appeal against refusal of their 85 home development at Lychgate Lane is Burbage has been allowed. The application was supported by our Flood Risk Assessment and Drainage Strategy, and Transport Assessment and Travel Plan. Leicestershire County Council in their role as lead local flood authority, and local highway authority, raised no objections subject to conditions. Nevertheless, Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council refused the application for two reasons, landscape and highways related. Despite that, working with Marrons Planning, we managed to remove the highways reason for refusal in the run up to the Inquiry. FPCR ably dealt with the landscape reason, and the appeal was allowed.
