It’s worth going the extra miles


…………….to Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome.

On Wednesday 13th July the Harborough District Council Planning Committee will be meeting to re-consider the IDI Gazeley planning application to build a massive warehouse on Mere Lane Ullesthorpe.

The meeting will be held in Hanger 42 at Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome.

On the 28th January when the planning committee heard this planning application for the first time over 350 people turned up at Lutterworth High School to demonstrate their opposition to this development.

We need to do the same again for this meeting. Bruntingthorpe is not so far away – when you consider what is at stake.

Please arrive at 6pm so we can show our collective opposition to this planning application. The meeting starts at 6.30pm

Directions to Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome can be found here.

Letter to councillors

MPisBE Ulles protest

The deserted medieval village is not the only issue that the HDC planning committee did not give proper consideration to at its meeting on 28th January.  Today councillors will have received a letter from the Magna Park is Big Enough campaigners pointing out a number of other issues that were not properly considered.  To read a copy of this letter click here    MPisBE letter to councillors

Planning Committee to be re-run

MP protest janHDC have just announced that they will be re-running the Planning Committee of the 28th January 2016 which considered the planning application from IDI Gazeley to build a large warehouse for DHL along Mere Lane in Ullesthorpe. (Ref: 15/00919/FUL)

The decision to re-run the meeting was made following legal advice about the way in which the previous meeting considered the impact of the development on the Bittesby Deserted Medieval Village.

The meeting to re-consider this application will be held on Wednesday 13th July at 6.30pm at Hangar 42, Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground and Aerodrome, Bath Lane, Bruntinghtorpe, LE17 5QS.

Many of you will share the view that the first meeting was flawed in a number of ways and hope that this time the process will ensure proper and complete scrutiny of the issues involved.

If you have not yet objected to this planning application you can still do so.  Click here for details
