Vigilant council officers have acted to help protect and defend an attractive rustic corner of Market Harborough.

Harborough District Council has served an “Immediate Article 4 Direction” on land at Queen’s Street in Little Bowden, Harborough.

The order “removes certain permitted development rights”.

Harborough District Council has served an Immediate Article 4 Direction on land at Queens Street in Little Bowden, Harborough.

As a result the landowner, who hasn’t been named, will have to specifically “obtain planning permission such as for the erection of a gate, fence or wall” in future.

“Planning permission is not usually needed for that work.

“The purpose of making these works subject to planning permission is to help protect the character and appearance of the area,” said the district council.

“Separately, the council has yet to take a planning decision on proposals to install fencing and use this land for a dog-walking area.”
