Seven houses to be built
PERMISSION was granted to build seven houses on land behind number 12 Wykin Road in Hinckley.
The mix of two and three bedroomed houses will be built partly on the current back garden of 12 Wykin Road and partly on land behind the back garden.
Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council planning committee gave permission on condition that two of the windows at number 12 Wykin Road are bricked up to ensure privacy for both the residents of number 12 and residents of the new houses. The other windows of number 12 must be triple glazed to reduce noise and high walls must be built at the front and back of the house.
