Community Liaison Group

The developers have set up a Community Liaison Group (CLG) consisting of representatives from local community groups, including a representative of the owners of the land, Charnwood Borough Council, Leicester County Council, Hathern Parish Council, Shepshed Town Council, the appointed management company (when created prior to commencement) and representatives of such other groups as the Borough Council and the owner may approve from time to time.

The role of this group is defined in the Section 106 agreement (Schedule 3, paragraph 10 and Schedule 3, Annex 2) to act as ‘an open line of communication with the communities most affected by the Development’.

The group is required to meet on a quarterly basis (or as agreed by members) during construction and for 6 months following completion of the development. The first meeting of the CLG was held in April 2019.

Agendas and minutes shall be made available via this webpage and engagement in these meetings is encouraged via your local representative.
