NEW DATE – 10th January – Full Council meeting

The new date for the postponed Council meeting is Wednesday 10th January.  All the arrangements are the same as for the postponed meeting on 11th December.

The planning application (15/01531/OUT) to expand Magna Park along the A5 and up towards Ullesthorpe and the Claybrookes has been “called in” to full council.  This means that the planning approval given on 23rd November has been withheld and the decision whether to approve or not will now be made by the full council at 6.30pm on Wednesday 10th January.  We need to grab this opportunity with both hands so please come along at 6pm to Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome to demonstrate your opposition to any further expansion of Magna Park.  More information here
