Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council has resolved to grant Bloor Homes Ltd outline planning permission for the development of Normandy Fields; a scheme of 850 dwellings on land off Normandy Way, to the west of Hinckley. The development will also include the provision of a primary school, convenience retail store, community and sports facilities, and associated infrastructure, all set within an attractive framework of formal and informal public open space.
Define provided a coordinated planning, masterplanning and landscape service to Bloor Homes that culminated in the preparation of a sustainable development scheme that is well integrated with the built form of Hinckley, and environmental and cultural features within it. The proposals were widely supported by the Borough Council and key stakeholders.
Define are now seeking to assist Bloor Homes by ensuring the swift delivery of the scheme. It is expected that the Borough Council will determine a full planning application for the first phases of the development in August.
