outline planning in ashby

Fisher German are pleased to announce that North West Leicestershire District Council has resolved to grant outline planning permission for 275 dwellings at Ashby de la Zouch.  

The application was heard by the Council’s Planning Committee on 2nd December and despite the Council maintaining that they are able to demonstrate a five year deliverable supply of housing, Members voted in favour of approving the proposed development which will be subject to a Section 106 legal agreement.

The scheme, by Richborough Estates, will deliver much needed homes to the District including up to 82 affordable units and other benefits such as National Forest planting, open space, sustainable urban drainage, wildlife areas, play areas, landscaping and footpaths links. 

The 14.76 hectare agricultural land on the western edge of Ashby lies outside of the defined Limits to Development for the town.  Given the departure from the Adopted Local Plan policy and within open countryside, the recommendation to approve the development was the direct result of active engagement by Fisher German with both stakeholders and Officers of North West Leicestershire District Council and Leicestershire County Council.

Fisher German have acted throughout on behalf of the owners and promoters of the site and are continuing negotiations to secure the completion of the Section 106 legal agreement and its onward sale.
