As some will be aware, the farmhouse has been an eye sore on the estate for many years. However, the council is limited in how it can force the current owners to keep the building safe, secure and decide how to take action because of the lack of complaints from local residents.
** Planning application submitted **
The owners have recently submitted a Planning Application and Listed buildings consent. P/18/0431/2 and P/18/0476/2 respectively. It looks like a resubmission of the previous application for 15 dwellings P/12/2301/2, this was granted by Officer Delegation on 20/3/2014. Comments until 4/4/2018.
It is vital that if a resident hears anything or sees anything suspicious happening in or around the site that it is report to the police as soon as it is safe to do so. The Leicestershire police website provides the facilities for reporting different types of incidents. https://leics.police.uk/report-online
A link is available on the Council website, providing the means of reporting any issue relating to empty properties.
