There is concern over this application. Groby Place residents are totally opposed and have a couple of lawyers searching out objections from the aspect of the deeds they have from when the land was released by Stamford Trust and National Trust. It’s been ongoing for ages. In the Societies view, this plan seems to be another example of over-development which has been reduced from the original 5 to 4 large houses.
One big problem that might help to further reduce the number of houses (which are designed to have 5 bedrooms) would be the increase of traffic entering and leaving Groby Place onto the main road adjacent to the Esso Petrol Station where access is one vehicle width especially with all the big vehicles in use these days!
Actually getting planning permission refused, ultimately seems to be a bit of a long shot.
