4/2/11   MINUTES

         The Minutes of the Meeting held on 20 January 2011 were confirmed as being
         a true record and authorised to be signed by the Chairman.


         The Clerk submitted Leicestershire County Council’s Leicestershire and
         Leicester Waste Development Framework Site Allocations consultation
         document (copies of which had previously been circulated to Members) for
         consideration and making appropriate representations on the inclusion of the
         Asfordby Mine Site.

         RESOLVED that Leicestershire County Council be advised that

         (a) the Parish Council objects to the inclusion of Asfordby Mine as a potential
         waste site in its Waste Development Framework for the following reasons:-

         (i) the current road infrastructure is inadequate to cope with the anticipated
         number of vehicles using a minor road.
         (ii) the proximity of Welby Brook to the site because the brook feeds into the
         main water supply concerns were raised about potential health hazards should
         any spillage occur and seepage into the water course.
         (iii) the proposed site has a history of flooding.
         (iv) the cumulative effect on the site and its surrounding environment as the
         site is already the subject of a 9 turbine wind farm planning application and a
         potential solar farm planning application.

         (b) if it was minded to include the site in spite of the objections listed above,
         the parish council requested the following:

         (i)     the highway network be upgraded to appropriate standards
         (ii)    the transportation of waste be conducted by rail
         (iii)   details of how to mitigate any smell coming from the site
         (iv)    the establishment of a community fund for the parish
         (v)     a road traffic census be undertaken for vehicles using the A6006
                 between Asfordby Valley and Asfordby Hill.

         (c) the parish council would favour the re-location of the Lake Terrace waste
         to this site.


         Further to the meeting held on 2 February 2011, the Clerk reported that the
         Council’s application to the Vanguard Scheme under the Localism Bill had
         been sent to Melton Borough Council for onward transmission to the
         appropriate ministry for consideration and as soon as any decision was made,
         this would be reported to the Council at the earliest opportunity.

         RESOLVED that the report be noted.

                                                                             APPENDIX 1

         (ii)    no objections be raised to applications 10/00961/COU and
         10/00962/LBC subject to the applicant being able to overcome the objections
         by the Highways Authority;

         (iii)   no objections be raised to application 11/0082/FUL subject to:
                 (a) the whole development being contained within the village
                 (b) all parking to be accommodated within the application site to
                     avoid on-street parking
