Rectory Farm Workshop Meeting 5 April 7pm VC Hall

Following a selection process by Melton Borough Council the site of Rectory Farm has been designated a potential option in the Melton Local Plan Emerging Options (Draft) document.

We are fully aware that there may be some concerns over this in terms of sheer size, traffic, loss of view etc and the Agents for the scheme have offered a series of workshops to plan the development and to see how the impact on existing residents can be minimised. The workshops will be facilitated by Stefan Kruckowski, a lecturer at Notts-Trent University and a leading figure in his field.

The Bottesford Parish Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group fully support this move as it provides the best opportunity for the residents and the Steering Group to have a real impact on the master plan for the development. The scheme is in its very early stages so you can influence the design and layout.

There will be seven workshops, which will start in mid April and residents are invited along to the V C Hall on the Tuesday 5th April at 7pm to ask questions and for attendees to select delegates to attend these workshops to represent their neighbours.

The workshop dates are still to be decided but we will have a draft program by the 5th April.

All very welcome.

Thank you.

Richard Simon. Secretary BPNP Steering Committee

Changes to April and May 2015 meeting dates.

Please see below a summary of changes for the forthcoming April and May 2015 meetings.

Hi all,
I hope you are well and enjoyed the Easter break.

Owing to the ‘Purdah’ which limits anyone standing for election at MP, BC or PC level being involved in public meetings, we have decided to cancel the Steering Group meeting on the 23rd April. We will however be bringing forward the May meeting to the 12th May which will replace the meeting previously notified for Wednesday 20th May.


The 12th May meeting will start at 6pm with a presentation by MBC on criteria for selecting sites on the SHLAA list which could go forward for development and those that would not be permitted to proceed. There will be an opportunity to put forward any specific Bottesford Parish criteria.

This will be followed by presentations for two of the Developments we have seen before: that on Grantham Road and the one in the NW corner of the village, south of the railway.

Last event of the evening will be the Steering Group meeting.


On the 13th May (sorry about the consecutive dates again) we have the 3rd CABE Workshop.

There is more information to follow but I wanted to give you as much notice of the changes as possible.


To recap.

  • Steering Group Meeting: 23rd April Cancelled.
  • Steering Group Meeting: 20th May Cancelled.
  • Meetings including Steering Group: 12th May start at at 6pm, Old School.
  • CABE Workshop 3: 13 May starting at 6pm, Old School.

I hope you will be able to make these events.
