Government OK Lubbesthorpe plan for 4,250 new homes in Leicestershire
A massive development to build 4,250 houses plus schools, roads and businesses to the west of Leicester will go ahead, without further Government scrutiny.
The Lubbesthorpe plan was given the go ahead locally back in November, when Blaby District Council’s planning committee voted to approve the plans, despite opposition from thousands of residents in Leicester Forest East, Enderby and elsewhere.
Since then, the developers have been waiting for the Government to give the project the final nod.
The Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, Eric Pickles, had the option of “calling in” the application for closer scrutiny because of the size of it.
