LEGAL CHALLENGE TO THE CHARNWOOD BOROUGH COUNCIL-CORE STRATEGY
Charnwood Borough Council will defend a legal challenge being made against its Core Strategy. The Council has received notice that an application has been made to the High Court for a judicial review of the examination process and adoption of the Core Strategy. The strategy sets out where new housing, employment land and infrastructure should go in Charnwood. It was adopted in November by the Council following extensive consultations and an examination by an independent planning inspector. Councillor Eric Vardy, Cabinet Member for Planning, said: “This is not an unexpected move and we will defend the Core Strategy.
CHARNWOOD BOROUGH COUNCIL-CORE STRATEGY FOR DEVELOPMENT
The Core Strategy includes the following developments:
• 3,000 homes and 16 ha of employment to the west of Loughborough
• 4,500 homes and 13 ha of employment to the north of Hamilton/east of Thurmaston
• around 1,500 homes and 15 ha of employment on land to the north of the A46 at Birstall
• 500 homes adjoining Shepshed.
The Core Strategy also sets out how the Council aims to help boost economic recovery in the area with plans being developed for the regeneration of the Watermead corridor, further development of the Loughborough Science and Enterprise Park and a regeneration plan for Shepshed.
The Core Stratgey Pre-Submission Consultation 2013 has now closed, following a 8-year consultation and research by the Borough Council.
