An informal public consultation was held on the proposals between October and December 2018. Eight exhibitions were held in venues across the local area and these were attended by around 1,500 residents. In response to the feedback received to the first informal consultation stage, a further round of informal consultation is now taking place, focussing on road improvement options outside the main HNRFI development site. This consultation will run from 8th July – 6th September 2019.
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 beyond the minimum requirements typical for this sort of application.
A series of local events will be held in locations that are accessible for residents across the Blaby District and Hinckley and Bosworth Borough.
