Harborough Local Plan 2011-2031, Proposed Submission

L1 3l.

Representation ID: 7151

Received: 17/11/2017

Respondent: Gilmorton Parish Council

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? Yes

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

The proposed Lutterworth East development includes provision of a spine road and closure of the current Gilmorton Road in Lutterworth to general traffic. We note the mention of Traffic Calming measures being required in Gilmorton and we would like to understand a.) what is behind this comment / proposed measure and b.) whether we will be consulted on the type and location of such measures. Our concern is that Gilmorton will increasingly become a 'rat run' for traffic heading for the southern outskirts of Leicester.

H1 clause 6f - Gilmorton

Representation ID: 7165

Received: 17/11/2017

Respondent: Gilmorton Parish Council

Legally compliant? Not specified

Sound? Not specified

Duty to co-operate? Not specified

Representation Summary:

Item 6f indicates an increase in the number of dwellings in Gilmorton by 25 homes. At present we are faced with growth of approximately 200 homes either from approved developments or those progressing through the planning process. The infrastructure within the Village is not suitable to accommodate this level of growth. The village and surrounding countryside road system is not suitable for the inevitable increase in traffic flow, exacerbated further by the lack of any public transport.

BE4 1f.

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? Yes

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

We note this site is to be further developed. As a neighbouring parish, Gilmorton already carries a significant amount of traffic to / from the site via Lutterworth Rd and Mill Lane. These roads, plus Kimcote Rd, have new housing developments approved, which will also increase the traffic movements. We are concerned that the cumulative effect of this development will exacerbate the overall traffic situation and would request that further details of proposed improvements are provided that address the concerns of local residents.

There is no evidence showing the need for the existing site on Bonehams Lane be increased from the present 6 pitches to 16 pitches - an increase of 10 pitches. This site was originally intended for a close family unit and should remain as such.
