Magna Park decision appeal – date set

Published Thursday 7 March 2019

A planning appeal inquiry date, relating to a storage and distribution centre and other facilities at Magna Park, has been set.

The public inquiry is scheduled for up to eight days from Tuesday 26 March 2019 at 10am and will take place in the Council Chamber at The Symington Building in Adam and Eve Street, Market Harborough, LE16 7AG.

A Government appointed Planning Inspector will decide the appeal.

The appeal is against the refusal of IDI Gazeley’s planning application (ref 15/01531/OUT) for a storage and distribution centre, country park, Logistics Institute of Technology and other facilities, at land at Mere Lane, Bittesby. The application was reconsidered on 10 January 2018 by the council, following a call-in by local councillors, and a decision was made to refuse the application.

The public are able to attend the Inquiry and may speak subject to arrangements made with the Inspector.

Public capacity of the Council Chamber, at The Symington Building, is limited to approximately 100 people – depending on layout of the room as governed by the Planning Inspector and the number of official representatives required to attend.

Members of the public will be admitted into the Council Chamber, on each day of the hearing, on a ‘first come first served’ basis.
