Protect greens, open spaces and separation land

A summary of the views I have had from the Parish Councillors. It was briefly discussed at the last meeting but they have now looked at the small print....


We need to preserve our greens , open spaces and separation land for future generations to enjoy, without fear of constant pressure to build and extend the parish boundary. This is paramount

Representation Summary:

Whilst we are on the subject however it is worth reflecting on the loss of once open vistas looking north from the White Lion. Over the years the owners have ridden roughshod over the planning control system and seem to have been awarded retrospective consents on what is now a shambolic, unplanned and ad hoc looking collection of sheds that masquerades as an "industrial estate". High flown aspirational Open Spaces Strategies look to be a waste of space when the hard reality of what we actually have foisted on us ( because of neglible enforcement capabilities ) is there for all to suffer ....so why do we bother in the first place?

It might be worth reflecting local support to establish abandoned railway lines as green corridor open space- we have a number of such stretches which used to be used as footpaths but missed the chance to register them formally.
In particular the link between the emergent marina on the Harborough Road by the closed station site and the Mill then down to the erstwhile Stanford Station -even as a permissive way- would be especially valuable for both wildlife and humans- whether pedestrians or on bikes.
The same could be done from the Marina all the way to Lubenham to create a traffic free route to the heart of Harborough . I am sure this would really demonstrate value in terms of health and tourism benefits once the new Marina opens. I encourage all who think likewise to respond to you and Matthew on the same lines (!)
