Res­i­dents should make their voice heard on Big Pit

Hinckley Times - - NEWS -

RES­I­DENTS in Hinck­ley are be­ing en­cour­aged to par­tic­i­pate in an ap­peal on pro­pos­als to build 60 houses on Big Pit in Hinck­ley.

Or­bit Hous­ing bossses want to build 60 houses on the site of the pit be­hind Ashby Road in Hinck­ley.

The plans had pre­vi­ously been voted down by Hinck­ley and Bos­worth Coun­cil but Or­bit has taken the case to ap­peal. The ap­peal is to be de­cided by a govern­ment plan­ning in­spec­tor.

Lo­cal Coun­cil­lor for the area Lib Dem Michael Mul­laney said: “Lo­cal res­i­dents and I be­lieve there should have been a proper pub­lic in­quiry to hear the ap­peal. Now this is not hap­pen­ing we need to get as many peo­ple to write in as pos­si­ble to ob­ject to the crazy plans to build on the Big Pit site. There are still real con­cerns about flood­ing if the site is built on.

“The more res­i­dents write in the more the plan­ning in­spec­tor will have to take no­tice of the scale of op­po­si­tion to these flawed plans to build on the Big Pit.

“Peo­ple have un­til Oc­to­ber 23rd to make sub­mis­sions. These can be done by email to or by post to Richard Mitchell, The Plan­ning In­spec­torate, Rooms 3C, Tem­ple Quay house, 2 The Square, Tem­ple Quay, Bris­tol, BS1 6PN, if send­ing writ­ten com­ments they ask you to send 3 copies, Please quote Ref: APP/ K2420/W/18/3203971 with any
