What happens next?
Permission for a major new housing development in Lubbesthorpe is set to be granted.
Eric Pickles, the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, has decided not to ‘call in’ an application for some 4,250 homes, employment, schools and other uses on land to the west of the M1, Lubbesthorpe.
Plans for the Lubbesthorpe development were approved by Councillors on November 1 at Blaby District Council’s Development Control Committee.
The planning application was referred to the Secretary of State in November 2012. He was asked to decide whether he wanted to determine the application himself or whether Blaby District Council could issue the decision.
The Secretary of State has allowed the Council to grant planning permission, subject to a number of conditions and completion of a legal agreement to secure items such as new schools, road improvements and other necessary infrastructure.
The Council will be issuing a decision when it is in a position to do so.
The full committee meeting, which took place at the Council offices in Narborough, is now available to watch at www.blaby.gov.uk/webcast

- 2 primary schools

This will be a major development for the district and although it is usual for a planning application to be determined within 16 weeks, the time taken to determine this particular application is anticipated to be longer because of its complexity and the need to make sure that all relevant individuals and organisations are properly consulted.
