Bloors planning application for 140 new homes details

Post by Admin on Sun Jul 12, 2009 1:23 pm

As you should already know from the email sent by Cllr. Cartwright, we received notification earlier today that Bloors are trying to "jump the gun" by pre-empting the HBBC LDF Site Allocations Public Examination by submitting a planning application for 140 new homes on the land next to the cemetery (Groby residents were consulted on a proposal for 82 new houses - to which the Parish Council strongly objects).

It could well be that this application has been encouraged by the success of Cawrey in Ratby with a similar tactic which did not meet with any strong co-ordinated opposition and we can not afford to be caught cold in a similar fashion.

I do believe that we have strong grounds to beat this one but we must get our act together very quickly to ensure that a resolution is passed by the Parish Council to include this sinister application in the remit of the funding already approved for legal representation in respect of the LDF process. The current resolution is specific to the LDF process but this "crafty" application falls outside of that process and therefore needs a new urgent resolution to authorise the use of our planning lawyer to help fight this.

Make no mistake if this is not strongly and effectively opposed it could be the start of the floodgates being opened to the development of the open spaces between Groby and Ratby.

Furthermore, if we don't mobilise Groby residents to strongly oppose this application it may well just be the signal to encourage HBBC planners to have another go at allocating the gipsy/traveller transit site on Sacheverell Way, especially if it is true what we are led to believe that travellers have now bought the land in question.

Therefore, I have decided to call an emergency Extraordinary General Meeting of Groby Parish Council for next Wednesday 15th July 2009, the Parish Clerk will be forwarding the formal notification to you tomorrow (Thursday).

I am sure that you will all agree that this is a very important issue for our community with considerable negative implications and that we can't afford to sit on our hands, I trust that I can count on your full and enthusiastic support.

More details of the application can be accessed by the following link: http://publicdocuments.hinckley-bosworth.gov.uk/AnitePublicDocs/00061355.pdf

BLOORS PLANNING APPLICATION

Post by Cllr. Peter Batty on Thu Aug 20, 2009 5:23 pm

Sorry! But we can't claim a victory yet. Just as with the traveller site proposal this application is almost certainly going to come back. We believe that the main reason for the application having been withdrawn is that HBBC demanded a higher number of "Affordable" houses on the site. If that is the case then it is very likely that the application will be re-submitted with an even higher number of plots on the application. We believe that it is only a matter of time and that local residents can not afford to relax and Groby and Ratby's opposition to this unacceptable application must remain firm. How can parents and grandparents be relaxed about the increased road safety issues that between 700 - 1000 extra vehicle movements a day from the only site entrance opposite the 2 schools will generate. If you feel this way then you can keep returning your letters of objection to either Groby Parish Council or Ratby Parish Council if you believe that this proposed development should not be allowed. All 4 Groby and Ratby Borough Councillors along with our County Councillor are working together to ensure that the concerns and representations of Groby and Ratby residents are heard by HBBC.
Contact details for your Borough Councillors and your County Councillor can be found on the Groby Parish Council website www.groby.com or the Ratby Parish Council website which can be accessed via the link on the Leicestershire County Council website or found on Google.

unfinished business?

The problem is that all the objections to date have been for the application "09/00469/FUL", but any revised application will presumably have a new reference for which they won't be valid , Evil or Very Mad therefore we'll need to start all over with new objections.

BUT WE WON'T BE DEFLATED WILL WE Question

Cheers
