A proposed new care home in Kibworth has been turned down.

Lincolnshire-based Tanglewood Care Homes wanted to build the 72-bedroom development on Fleckney Road, Kibworth Beauchamp.

But Harborough District Council’s planning committee last night (Tuesday) refused to give the scheme the go-ahead after over 60 local people objected.

Councillors acted because they said the blueprint was outside the Neighbourhood Plan for the Kibworths.

The home would have created 60 full-time jobs if it had been built.
