A developer is asking for views and suggestions from local residents about their proposals to develop fields off Loughborough Road, Whitwick.
Radleigh Homes are planning on building 44 homes on the site which backs on to King Richards Hill.
The developer and their professional consultants, Pegasus Group, have created a website, www.loughboroughroadwhitwick.co.uk, to allow local people to give their views. The consultation is open until 8 September 2014.
County Councillor for Whitwick, Leon Spence, said 'It's vitally important after all the fights to protect the Green Wedge to maintain the integrity of Whitwick as a village community. This application must do just that or be refused.
'I would strongly urge local residents to give their views and constructive suggestions during this consultation phase and just as importantly the developer to heed them.
'I am happy to facilitate a public meeting to discuss the proposals should local residents or the developers think that it may help.'
