A draft masterplan has been drawn up to guide the development of land South of Station Road in Market Bosworth.

The plan follows the statement issued by Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council, St Peters Church and Market Bosworth Parish Council in July 2019 confirming their joint commitment to overseeing the development of the land. More »

Planning consultants, Birmingham-based Define were subsequently appointed and have now created an overall masterplan and development strategy for the site.

The objective is a development of high quality design in keeping with the distinctiveness of the town, with affordable housing well integrated into the scheme, business units for existing and new companies and appropriate community facilities. The plan will be used to secure a developer to ensure completion of the scheme in the next five years.

A draft masterplan is available to view on the Council's website www.hinckley-bosworth.gov.uk/mbmasterplan. It is intended that formal public consultation on this document will be held later in the year once the current Covid 19 restrictions are sufficiently relaxed. In the meantime anyone who wishes to make any comments is invited to please contact the Borough Council at planningpolicy@hinckley-bosworth.gov.uk

Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council Chief Executive, Bill Cullen, said "We are pleased to be working in partnership with Market Bosworth Parish Council and St Mary's Church in securing a high quality scheme for this proposed major development in Market Bosworth which is an opportunity to bring forward a key development site in the borough." » Less
