Magna Park planning decision called in to Council

Published Monday 27 November 2017

Councillors have ‘called-in’ a decision relating to a planning application for a storage and distribution centre around the Magna Park business park near Lutterworth.

On Thursday 23 November 2017 Harborough District Council’s planning committee resolved to approve two applications, from db Symmetry (ref 15/00865/OUT) for land adjacent to Glebe Farm, Coventry Road, Lutterworth, and IDI Gazeley (ref 15/01531/OUT) for land at Mere Lane, Bittesby, at an extraordinary planning committee held at Hangar 42, Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground and Aerodrome.

Subsequent to the meeting, the decision relating to the IDI Gazeley application (ref 15/01531/OUT) has been called-in by a group of district councillors in line with the Council’s Constitution. This means the decision by planning committee to approve that application no longer stands.

Instead the IDI Gazeley planning application will now be considered at a meeting of Harborough District Council’s Full Council to be held on Monday 11 December 2017.

The planning committee’s decision to approve the application from db Symmetry (ref 15/00865/OUT) remains unchanged.
