The District Council Planning Committee have this evening voted unanimously to refuse planning permission for 70 houses on Hallam’s site off Lower Packington Road.  This was in spite of their Officers having recommended to permit.  The Officers conceded at the meeting that there are strong sustainability arguments against the site.
Our thanks to everyone for your continued support and especially those who made objections or who came to support us in Coalville today.
It proves that the views of local people do matter and strengthens PNRA should we have to act again.
with thanks
