Representation Summary:

Rural Centres are being declared sustainable simply by the fact of having certain services present. This can't be correct when those services are either under threat or already at or over capacity.
By proposing further development in such places I would argue that HDC is at odds with its own vision outlined in this very plan which calls for: "housing should be located where it will enhance or maintain the vitality of rural communities." .

Respondent: KIBWORTH BEAUCHAMP Parish Council

Representation Summary:

The Rural Centres of both Great Glen and The Kibworths are still coping with the significant size of development from the Last Local Plan in GG/2 and KB/1. The Core Strategy included a paragraph in Policy 17 that gave some protection to further largescale development outside the limits of development, and no further policies for further development should be included until the Neighbourhood Plans for both settlements have been adopted. The sustainability of The Kibworths is already compromised with the primary school full , two GP surgeries near or at capacity, and highways infrastructure, especially access to A6..

These identified centres can stand some development but schools, Doctors etc cannot sustain large numbers of extra housing.
Public Transport is abysmal.

Representation Summary:

We support the retention of these villages as Rural Centres. Their role and the retention and improvement of the community infrastructure they provide for the wider rural area must be sustained by additional housing, and employment, development.

Representation Summary:

Kibworth Harcourt should not be joined with Kibworth Beauchamp as a single rural centre ("the Kibworths"). Harcourt does not have the facilities to qualify as a rural centre.

Representation Summary:

Some of these centres, whilst having adequate services to meet the needs of the existing community, may not have high levels of employment opportunities therefore business development to meet the needs of local people should match the increases in housing development

Representation Summary:

The inclusion of the Kibworths and Billesdon as Rural Centres is fully supported. Both settlements play an important role for the wider rural area and must be sustained by the allocation of signigicant new housing development and infrastructure.

Representation Summary:

We support the identification of a settlement hierarchy for Harborough District to ensure that future development is sustainably located. We further support the selection of Ullesthorpe as a rural centre within that hierarchy to reflect its suitability to absorb some additional development.

Be flexible to change the category if some services are closed despite new residents as often they do not support the local services

Representation Summary:

rural centres must not be used to shoe horn in housing as even if they have shops and pubs these are not used by enough to make them viable
