Blaby District Council Housing Plans

Leicestershire County Council have identified the land between Stoney Stanton and the M69 as a Strategic Development Area (SDA). Together with Blaby District Council, they are putting forward proposals that would see around 6,000 new houses being built across this area.

It will form part of their Local Plan in which they are putting forward plans to build over 17000 new houses across Blaby District. This far exceeds the number they are required to provide.

How will it affect Stoney Stanton?

Blaby District Council have already put out a request for potential sites. This has been put into a document called the “Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA) 2019”. In this they have identified land around Stoney Stanton, that could amount to over 6000 houses being built – destroying many hundreds of acres of farmland, with no proper infrastructure in place to support them – And this is on top of the proposed Hinckley National Rail Freight Interchange which would occupy the other side of the M69!

All the areas highlighted above are up for consideration
