GLADMAN DEVELOPMENT IN BARWELL REFUSED ON APPEAL

GLADMAN DEVELOPMENT IN BARWELL REFUSED ON APPEAL

Hinckley & Bosworth District Council's refusal of an application of up to 185 dwellings in Barwell has been upheld by The Planning Inspectorate.

The application on land adjacent to The Common, Barwell was initially refused back in August 2017. The Council rejected the plans, submitted by Gladman Developments, after the application conflicted with policies set out by the Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council, Town and Country Planning Act 1990, which seeks to promote sustainable development. This then went to appeal in November 2017 with the refusal decision being announced on the 20th July 2018. More »

Barwell Parish Councillor Chairman Barry Granger said "This is an important ruling for Barwell, and one which we are absolutely delighted with. We were clear with the applicants from the outset that this was not a sustainable site for development.

"We hope this sends a message to all applicants that we will refuse planning applications if they do not follow the guidelines and policies set out by Barwell Parish Council and by Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council."

Barwell Parish and Borough Councillor Russ Roberts also commented "I am delighted with the outcome of this appeal, a lot of hard work, time and energy has gone into this project. The Borough Council can demonstrate a five year supply of housing land, which is required by the Department for Communities and Local Government.

Huw Williams, Barwell Parish and Borough Councillor also commented "This decision is a testament to the hard word put in by residents, the HBBC Officers and local Councillors from the Borough and Parish Council, who worked together to oppose this unwanted development in Barwell. It's a fantastic outcome and will help to protect the little amount of free space that will remain after the SUE development is built. » Less
