Police Report

We are pleased to report that there were no crimes recorded in Wymeswold for the month of February.

Reports from the County and Borough Councillors

County Councillor Richard Shepherd has been investigating various highways issues in the village including the damaged kerbs outside no.1 Hoton Road.

Borough Cllr Bokor is liaising with the Charnwood Borough Council housing department for a grit bin to be installed for the sheltered housing on Church Street. There has also been a proposal at Council to have a snow warden in the borough, especially to check on old people’s homes and a report is being prepared for Cabinet.

Boyer Planning Application

The planning application to build 32 new houses on both sides of Storkit Lane came before Charnwood Borough Council’s Planning Committee on 28th February. Both Cllr Shaw and Cllr Ling attended the meeting and Cllr Shaw spoke on behalf of Wymeswold PC. The planning committee voted to support the recommendation of the planning officers and Boyer Planning’s application was refused. Boyer Planning do still have the option to appeal against the decision and we will endeavour to keep you informed of any developments.
