Melton Borough Council

Opportunity to have your say on the design of new developments within Melton Borough

Published Tuesday, 8th June 2021

Residents  are being asked to share their views  and help shape the future of design for new developments within the borough.

The consultation will run from 10 June 2021 until 22 July 2021 and will help to shape the Design of Development Supplementary Planning Document (SPD).

Cllr Higgins, Deputy Leader of the Council, and Portfolio Holder for Growth and Prosperity said “Melton has a rich and diverse history that has helped to shape the places we cherish. Alongside this, we must embrace the changing demands of residents, and their families, to ensure that we create new developments that will be valued, relevant and useful in the future.

Good design is a means of ensuring that new developments are a good fit with the environment and create beautiful and resilient places. This document provides you with the tools to design better developments that are in line with the aspirations and objectives of the Melton Local Plan, and that will increase the quality, value and desirability of our borough’s housing and pride in the communities we create. Together we can help build a better Melton.”

Two consultation events will take place via Zoom, on 6 July from 6pm–8pm and 15 July from 1pm–3pm. The events will include a short presentation followed by a Q&A session, giving the opportunity to pose questions to the consultants and officers involved in the production of the Design of Development SPD.

You can join the Zoom meeting by using the following details: meeting ID 896 5527 1421 password 626698.
