The Parish Council is aware of the proposals to develop on land off Leicester Road, Ellistown by Gladman Land and this will be on the Agenda for the forthcoming meeting on 22nd February.
We are expecting a big turnout for this meeting, at which everyone is welcome, however due to time constraints the Chairman can only allow a 15 minute public recess.
The developer is running a public consultation and to ensure everyone gets their views across we would encourage you to take part in this by sending your thoughts to them. Attached is a leaflet with the details of the proposals, consultation and contact details of where to send your views. More »
Please feel free to email Karen Turrell, the Parish Clerk on the address at the top right of this page, with your comments and she will keep them all for our records.
The Parish Council would like to make everyone aware that although the District Planners ask them for comments on any planning applications they receive for the village, the Parish Council in no way hold any influence over the final decision taken by NWLDC Planning department.
The Parish Council Chairman, Cllr Keith Merrie, in his capacity as District Councillor for Ellistown is fully aware of the situation, he has spoken to the Head of Strategic Planning at NWLDC and to the developer and can confirm that the proposed site:
1. Is outside the limits to development.
2. Contradicts the current NWLDC local plan.
3. Contradicts the NWLDC emerging plan and
4. No plans have been submitted to NWLDC yet.
