Neighbourhood Plan Consultation Event

Are you curious to find out more about the results of the recent residents' survey in Burton on the Wolds, Cotes, Prestwold and Hoton?

There will be an event in October to share this information with you and highlight the issues that were raised. The Joint Neighbourhood Planning Committee has developed a number of options to address each of the issues and will be seeking your preferences that will inform the Neighbourhood Plan itself, including where any additional housing might be located.

Please watch out for an invitation which will be delivered to each household in Burton on the Wolds, Cotes, Prestwold and Hoton in the coming weeks.

What is neighbourhood planning?

Neighbourhood planning gives local people direct powers to shape how their local area develops and grows and to get the right development for their community.

Local communities can use neighbourhood planning to set planning policies through a neighbourhood plan and grant planning permission through neighbourhood development orders and community right to build orders.

Neighbourhood plans and orders are put to a community vote and will only be approved if more than 50% of the vote is in favour of the plan or order. This ensures that the community has the final say on whether a neighbourhood plan or order comes into force.

Press Release from the Parish Council Meeting on 6th September 2016

New Parish Councillor for Cotes!
We have a new Parish Councillor representing Cotes; Karin Hibbins was co-opted to the Parish Council at the September meeting. Cllr Hibbins is passionate about Cotes and the people who live there and is looking forward to representing the residents of Cotes on the Parish Council.

Work on Loughborough Road
Leicestershire County Council are planning to carry out work to Loughborough Road in Burton on the Wolds in mid-October. The work will include re-haunching, resurfacing and footpath work. Loughborough Road will be closed for a period of five days whilst these urgently needed works are completed. More »

Verge on Melton Road
The Parish Council would like to thank Parish Councillor David McDermott, who has been hard at work on the verge at the side of Melton Road in Burton on the Wolds, between the Lion's Mouth Fountain and the Greyhound Pub. The verge has been cleared, including removal of self-set tree stumps, stones and weeds. Drifts of daffodil bulbs have been planted and wildflower seeds have been sown. These seeds will take time to establish, so for next year, annuals have also been sown. This is a much needed improvement to this area.

Village Hall Roof Update
The work to the roof of the Village Hall is progressing well; the rear of the Hall is almost complete. Many of the slate tiles are in good condition, but deteriorating fixings mean that many are coming loose and this work, to renew the fixings, wooden battens and breathable membrane, will ensure that they stay firmly in place for many years to come.

Police Report
During the month of August 2016, Burton on the Wolds and Cotes had no reported crime.
In Prestwold there was one assault and a garage break, on separate dates, both in the area of Prestwold Lane. For further crime information please visit www.police.uk.

Parish Council Meetings
The next meeting will be held on Tuesday 4th October at 7:30pm in Burton on the Wolds Village Hall.

Alternatively contact the Clerk, Clare Blain, or any of the Parish Councillors (details of Parish Councillors can be found on the Parish Council website or on the noticeboards).
