Planning Application 20/01706/FUL :

to retrospectively seek approval for extending the boundary and erecting a small storage store. It was agreed to object as the fence has already been moved closer to Wistow Road and the original hedge has been removed. In making their views known to HDC, the council will ask that the decision includes a condition to move the fence back to the original boundary line and the hedge restored.

Kibworth School.

A letter was discussed from Kate Foster, chairman of governors, at The Kibworth School, about a proposal to join The Mead Education Trust (TMET) multi-academy trust (MAT) consisting of ten academies in the city. The council agreed a response to the letter.
