Hoton Parish Council News – November 2017

Speed Survey
The speed of traffic travelling through Hoton has long been a concern of residents, and therefore, of the Parish Council. Whilst this is the responsibility of Leicestershire County Council, their funds are allocated to higher priority areas, so the Parish Council continues to take what action it can to address this issue. Earlier in the year, the Parish Council commissioned a speed survey to be conducted on the three main entrances and exits to Hoton; Loughborough Road, Rempstone Road and Wymeswold Road. This survey captured the speeds of vehicles travelling in both directions at these locations over a period of a week and has produced some interesting and useful data. The Parish Council can use this data as a baseline for the speed of traffic as well as to identify priority areas. A graphic showing the headline figures can be found on our website at:

Planning Application: Construction of two free range egg laying units and a worker's dwelling
The Parish Council has been notified of a planning application for two free range egg laying units and a worker's dwelling on land to the West side of Rempstone Road; planning application number P/17/2070/2. The application can be found on Charnwood Borough Council's website, where you can also make your comments, until 6th December 2017.
The owners of Sunrise Poultry came to the November Parish Council meeting to explain the detail of their planning application and to answer the Parish Council's questions. The Parish Council will be making a site visit to a similar unit before meeting again on 27 November, to agree its comments on this application. The Parish Council are interested to hear your views on the application, please email or speak to any of the Parish Councillors.
