Windy Ridge, Little Bowden

Walking home from the station tonight someone asked if I would show a poster protesting against the development of Windy Ridge on the edge of Little Bowden. I agreed to do so.

The Harborough Mail will tell you about the issues at stake:

An inquiry into the so-called Battle of Windy Ridge is due to start tomorrow (Wednesday, January 13).

A Government-appointed planning inspector will preside over a three-day public inquiry in Harborough over the latest homes row at the so-called Windy Ridge site, off Glebe Road in Little Bowden.

Developers Mosaic Ventures and Fletcher Homes want to build 141 houses on the 17-acre plot of land but residents living nearby are against the move.

Harborough District Council's planning department threw out the application in August, saying the plan lies outside the limits of its Local Plan and would adversely affect the appearance of the countryside.
