Make Sure You Have Your Say!

Huncote: Thurlaston: Leicester Forest West: Croft: Potters Marston: Stoney Stanton: Sapcote: Aston Flamville: Sharnford: Wigston Parva.

You may recall that, during the first week of June, every household in the above villages received details of how to input their views on the Neighbourhood Plan.

You can view the Neighbourhood Plan on line and submit your comments on or in hard copy at Sapcote, Stoney Stanton or Huncote Community Libraries. The Libraries or your Parish Council/Meeting also have hard copy response forms. More »

Given your approval the plan will go forward for referendum approval and will provide a first line of defence for our villages against opportunistic over development.


"The neighbourhood plan gives us the chance to say how development should take place. Without it, developers will make those choices for us."

Mike Lee, Chairman, Fosse Villages Board
