Jelson Homes wants to build the houses on land east of Broughton Way in the village.

The houses would eventually form part of a bigger development on both sides of Broughton Way.

The complete development of 310 homes would also include a food store, a petrol station, a community leisure centre, a medical centre and employment units.

The appearance and layout of the scheme will be considered by planners.

Broughton Astley is the largest village in the Harborough district, with a population of 9,000.
