2020 10 06 Parish Council meeting PRESS RELEASE

PRESS RELEASE from the Parish Council meeting on 6th October 2020.

The Parish Council is actively engaging with development control and was pleased that Mr Richard Bennett, Head of Planning and Regeneration at Charnwood Borough Council accepted our invitation to attend this meeting to address some of the concerns that have been relayed to the Parish Council by our residents.

P/20/1171/2 HAWKER BUSINESS PARK, MELTON ROAD, BURTON ON THE WOLDSLE12 (change of use from Class B1a Offices to Class C3 Residential) More »

Despite our best efforts, Charnwood Borough Council determined that prior approval [is] not required due to current legislation originally intended to respond to issues in larger urban areas, such as London and Manchester, whereby redundant office space was seen as an opportunity to provide additional housing.

The Parish Council would like to thank all residents who took the time to send letters of objection to this application.


The Parish Council ask that residents park considerately and not to cause hazards to other residents and road users. The Highway Code states that motorists should not park "opposite or within 10 metres (32 feet) of a junction, except in an authorised parking space".

The Parish Council also ask that residents refrain from parking on grass verges. These verges are owned by Leicestershire County Council and parking is prohibited. Incidences will be reported.


The next Parish Council meeting will take place virtually on Tuesday 3rd November 2020 at 7.30 p.m. unless advised otherwise. There is a 15 minute section at each Parish Council meeting where you are welcome to speak if you have any questions or comments.
