Proposed Developments

Several developments will have a devastating impact on our village:

1 .  Hinckley National Rail Freight Interchange – This massive warehouse facility next to the M69 is bigger than the whole of Stoney Stanton.

NEWS……this proposed development was debated in parliament by Alberto Costa MP on 11th February 2020 – here you can watch the video or read the transcript.

2 .  Blaby District Council housing plans over 6000 new houses are being considered on local farmland – this would treble the size of Stoney Stanton.

NEWS……on the 24th March 2020, it was announced that the government have rejected Leicestershire County Council’s bid for a £19m share of the Housing Infrastructure Fund (HIF) to make changes to junction 2 of the M69. These changes are thought to be key for both the Council’s strategic housing plans and the HNRFI. Whilst this is good news, it is not yet the end of the matter – as the Council could raises the funds with developers. see the cabinet report here and the Leicester Mercury article here.

3 .  The A46 Eastern Expressway – new road carving eastwards through the countryside from the M69 junction 2.
