Have your say on new planning guidance

Published Thursday, 18 April 2019

Hinckley and Bosworth residents and businesses are being invited to have their say on the latest planning guidance for new build developments and extensions.

The document prepared by Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council known as ‘The Good Design Supplementary Planning Document’ (SPD) is now live and comments are welcomed. The consultation will close on Monday 13 May.

Once agreed, the document will guide developers, agents and members of the public with the design of their developments and extensions. It will set out the general principles accepted by the council for new residential, existing residential, barn conversions, commercial and shop front developments.

The document is available to view at: www.hinckley-bosworth.gov.uk/gooddesignguide

To make comments, please email planningpolicy@hinckley-bosworth.gov.uk, complete the online form or write to: Policy & Regeneration Team, Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council, The Hub, Rugby Road, Hinckley, LE10 0FR.

Following the consultation, comments will be analysed and necessary changes will be incorporated into the final document for adoption by the council, anticipated to be later this year.
