Plans to build 61 new homes off Wistow Road in Kibworth which were thrown out only a month ago have been submitted to Harborough District Council for a second time.

Applicants Manor Oak Homes applied for permission last year but the council’s planning committee rejected the scheme in March on the grounds that the development was too remote from services in the village and would only encourage residents to use their cars more often as a result.
