Blaby District Council awarded Garden Village Status --
posted September 26th 2019
On 28th June, Blaby District Council issued a press
release reporting on its success in securing Garden Village status
for Whetstone Pastures, a proposed development to the south-east
of the district. Details of the press release can be found on our
[Blaby District Council] news post of 19th July.

press release, particularly that it had not been informed of the
Garden Village proposals, given the potential impact on Countesthorpe.
The Parish Council is still concerned that residents are not aware,
or have limited knowledge, of the details of the proposals. The
Parish Council has therefore invited the Leader of Blaby District
Council, Councillor Terry Richardson, to make a presentation and
to give Councillors and residents the opportunity to ask questions.
Details of the date and time of the event will be published in due
