Decision to be made in coming months

Proposals for a new 1,200-home neighbourhood on the eastern edge of Leicester have gone in for planning. 

Family-owned firm Parker Strategic Land will redevelop land currently being used by Scraptoft Golf Club, who will move to a nearby site.

Harborough council is expected to make a decision in the coming months.

Work will also include retail, healthcare and community facilities and accommodation.

The redevelopment will also include a two-form entry primary school, a children’s day nursery and sport and recreational facilities, including parks and play areas.
