Taylor Wimpey to consult on proposals for land North of Barkby Road, Syston
27 August 2021.

Taylor Wimpey will this week launch a digital public consultation on the proposals for land North of Barkby Road, Syston.

The site has been selected for development by Charnwood Borough Council in the Draft Charnwood Local Plan 2021-2037, to provide up to 195 much needed new homes. The Local Plan is a document prepared by the Borough Council that allocates land for sustainable development over this period.

The proposals for the site are in accordance with the draft Local Plan policy for the site. Feedback from this consultation will help to refine our plans before submitting a planning application to Charnwood Borough Council.

In light of the ongoing uncertainty in respect of the pandemic, we have provided a virtual town hall exhibition for the duration of the consultation period. This includes a range of information on the proposals, the opportunity to ask questions through our live web chat service, and the opportunity to provide feedback. The virtual exhibition can be accessed at: www.taylorwimpey.co.uk/newhomes/syston/barkby-road .

We would welcome all feedback by Sunday 19th September, when the consultation period ends.

A paper copy of the consultation materials can be provided by contacting DevComms, our community representatives, at: syston@devcomms.co.uk or calling freephone on 0800 080 3268.

Ellie Gale, Senior Strategic Land & Planning Manager, said “We are pleased to bring forward proposals for this site for consultation, in line with its allocation in the Draft Charnwood Local Plan. We are looking forward to working with Charnwood Borough Council and other stakeholders to deliver much needed homes on site, including 30% of affordable homes, early in the Local Plan period”
