Appeal after 111-home estate plans are refused
AN APPEAL has been launched over a decision to not allow a developer to build a 111-home estate on the outskirts of Broughton Astley.
Applicant Ivan Crane’s scheme for the estate, as well as a sports hall, community centre and open spaces, was rejected earlier this year.
The estate would have been built on land near Hallbrook School, off Crowfoot Way. Mr Crane has already been given permission to build 50 homes on an adjacent site.
Harborough District Council turned down the 111-home scheme in August, saying it was not in keeping with the rest of the village.
A date has not been set for the appeal hearing, but the deadline for representations is November 14. The plans are online at www.harborough.gov.uk.
