Community Engagement

Whilst the application will be submitted to the Planning Inspectorate, db symmetry is committed to engaging with the surrounding local communities on the proposals ahead of a formal submission. Informal Consultation was held on the proposals between October-December 2018 and db symmetry is currently in the process of reviewing all of the feedback received, and considering how to provide the necessary information to address the concerns raised to date.

In response to the feedback received to the first informal consultation stage, a further round of informal consultation focusing on options for off-site highways improvements will be held Summer 2019.


A series of local events will be held in locations that are accessible to the ‘host’ communities within Blaby District and Hinckley and Bosworth Borough. Once we have confirmed locations and precise timings for these, we will be notifying stakeholders, residents and the local press.


In discussion with the local authorities, db symmetry has prepared a Statement of Community Consultation (SoCC) which details how the local community will be consulted on the proposals. db symmetry has committed to undertake a robust consultation which goes above the minimum requirements typical of NSIPs.


Statutory consultation will follow later in 2019 and will include a fully reasoned response to the informal public consultation exercises.
