I would like to have sight of the records of discussion and correspondence that took place between Charnwood Borough Council and the developer (and his agents) who sought to redesignate the status of the allotment site, off Loughborough Road in Quorn. The OS grid reference at the centre of the plot of land concerned is 45572 316613. The land consists of individual freehold allotment plots and discussions took place to reclassify the land as greenfield. Since this is a public planning matter the documents should not be subject to legal privilege.
Following the above information request I am pleased to provide the following information.
The Council holds no correspondence or any records of discussions between the developer (or his agents) and the Council regarding the re-classification of the land referred to in your request.
The land in question no longer benefits from a Borough of Charnwood Local Plan policy designation as 'Allotments' following the decision of the Secretary of State on 21 September 2007, not to save policy RT/15. As a result the land does not have any formal planning policy designation under the saved Borough of Charnwood Local Plan.
