Permission sought for new 400 home development in Leicestershire


Plans have been submitted to Harborough Borough council for 400 new homes on land in Leicestershire.

The 33 hectare site sits on land to the south of Wistow Road in Kibworth, and consists of three arable fields.

The application also offers to provide a 2 acre site for a potential new primary school.

A planning statement from Manor Oak Homes, who are behind the bid for outline planning permission, says: “The proposed development has been carefully considered so that it will positively enhance both the site, surroundings and the wider area.

“The development will significantly improve the existing land condition and will be of great benefit to the surrounding area, as such, the proposal for development is fully justifiable and will create a positive impact in the community.

“The proposal will result in good quality dwellings which will provide a good living environment for all residents and enhance the character and appearance of the area.

“Overall, it is believed that the amount and type of development is appropriate for the site, related well to the existing character of the area and will help create an inclusive and sustainable community for the future.”
