Plans to build a two-bedroom home in Harby which had split opinion in the village have been approved by Melton Council’s planning committee.

Objectors raised concerns including the ridge height of the proposed property in Boyers Orchard and potential overshadowing of neighbouring properties.

But Melton Council also received around 10 letters of support in favour of the proposal, with supporters claiming the development would result in improvements including parking.

After hearing from speakers both for and against the application the planning committee decided to approve the plans, subject to conditions.
