ST GEORGE’S BARRACKS – IMPORTANT UPDATE

Please find attached a progress report from the Joint Edith Weston / North Luffenham Working Group, which explains what the Working Group has been doing to date and what its future tasks are.

At the Focus Group meetings held on 29th Jan we were advised by the County Council that the current proposals would see both a development of 1,500 – 3,000 homes on the Western end (Edith Weston) of the site, and in addition the development of a substantial part of the Eastern (North Luffenham) end of site for the extraction of limestone. The report attached includes a map highlighting the area designated for mineral extraction.

The aim of the Working Group is initially to gather the information necessary to influence the development of the site. The first step in this will be to present a paper highlighting our concerns to the County Council in early March before any decisions are made.

Prize giving for Village Plan Survey submissions

The Village Plan survey offered a prize for a meal for two at The Fox and everybody who did the survey was invited to enter a telephone number. The draw took place at The Fox and the winning number was drawn by one of the bar staff.

They had an enjoyable meal.

(The Steering Group for the Village Survey are grateful to Jason Allen, landlord of The Fox, for providing the prize).
