Results of North West Leicestershire District Council Planning Committee – Tuesday 5 September

At the meeting of Planning Committee held on Tuesday 5 September, seven planning applications were considered. Four were permitted and three were refused. Please see the table below for more detail.

An application to extend North Street car park in Ashby by redeveloping the land occupied by the former health centre, was approved by the committee.

The application proposes the creation of 52 car parking spaces, two ambulance bays and five motorcycle spaces.

The committee decided to reject two separate applications for new homes on sites outside the limits to development at Packington. This first was a plan to build seven single storey detached homes off Ashby Road, and the second was to construct three homes on land at Spring Lane.

Speaking about these decisions, Chairman of Planning Committee, Councillor David Stevenson said: “The committee is now able to attach weight to the emerging local plan, because it has reached an advanced stage, and giving us control over new development across the district.

“It’s a case of the committee, council officers and members of the public being able to understand where they stand when it comes to development in the district.”
