Developer’s bid to build up to 55 homes on former MOD land at Old Dalby

Have your say

A developer wants to build up to 55 homes on former Ministry of Defence land at Queensway, Old Dalby.

Family Housing Ltd is seeking outline planning permission to build the properties on two-and-a-half hectares of land to the west of Princes Road.

A design and access statement supporting its application to Melton Council says: “The design, scale, layout and access of the development are not for determination as part of this application. Only the principle of residential use is to be considered.

“While a matter for subsequent approval through a reserved matters application, the site would be landscaped to enhance the design of the development.”

A transport statement prepared on behalf of the developer claims the proposed development would have a ‘negligible impact on the operation of the local highway network’, adding that the site would be accessed through the consented residential development on the adjacent field to the south.
