Countesthorpe residents are fighting major development in their village. 2 large Planning Applications have been accepted, another has been rejected but gone to appeal, while a 4th by Davidsons (Willoughby Rd.) threatens meadows and green belt, protected trees and the peace and well-being of nearby residents and allotments. There are fears that the latter is only Phase 1. The proposed developments will have consequences for the whole village, as the infrastructure, in terms of sewage and drainage, schools, doctors, law and order and traffic cannot cope.
The residents vow to fight off this menace. Local councillors have voiced their objections, while Leicestershire BNP have provided support and practical help. The Blaby MP, Andrew Robotham has written a scathing attack on immigration as the cause of these huge developments being needed.
