Council looks to sell land set for redevelopment

Published Friday 11 September 2020

The Council is considering selling its part of a site at Naseby Close in Market Harborough which has been earmarked for redevelopment.

After considering options for the Naseby Close site, Harborough District Council’s Cabinet agreed, in principle, on 8 September 2020 to explore the sale of its part of the land to the Platform Housing Group which owns the rest of site.

Councillors agreed a report would come back to Cabinet for a final decision later this year.

The Council said it is refocusing its priorities in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Naseby Close housing project is a redevelopment for 38 new homes, at a former garage site owned by Harborough District Council along with land that is currently owned by Platform Housing Group.

A planning application will be considered by Harborough District Council later this year to reflect the Cabinet’s decision.
