Kibworth Neighbourhood Plan draft policies now available for comment
Kibworth Neighbourhood Planning Group is a cooperation between Kibworth Beauchamp and Harcourt Parish Councils started in 2014 to produce a Neighbourhood Plan that will control the development of our town.
A Neighbourhood Plan, once approved, directs how development of an area proceeds. It can apply to most major areas of development such as new housing, amenities and open spaces, roads and transport...
Anyone can get involved!
Our village questionnaire attracted 803 respondents. A draft set of policies has now been produced and was available at a consultation event between 2pm and 8pm on 19 May at the Kibworth Cricket Club for people to read, talk to KNPG members and make comments.
You can now view and comment on our draft Neighbourhood Plan policies on-line!

Public defibrillator available on side of Boboli
Deb Tweddle and Mandy Lowe from EMAS, Cllr. Dr. Kevin Feltham, Dominic Waters, Sarah Poli from Boboli at the official launch of the defibrillator on 16 September 2015.
To access the defibrillator, phone 999 from where emergency has occurred, and while organising for an ambulance to set off, the operator can give you the numeric code needed to open the box. You can then take the battery driven defibrillator to the emergency and follow the spoken instructions while the ambulance arrives.
Award-winning housing developer Waters Homes has donated £650 to help buy a defibrillator for the village of Kibworth Harcourt, Leicestershire, near where it recently built a selection of two three-bedroom houses for Seven Locks Housing.
The life-saving equipment is wall mounted outside Boboli restaurant on Main Street, giving people 24-hour emergency access to a heart-start machine.
Dominic Waters, development director at Waters Homes said: "As soon as we heard that Kibworth Harcourt Parish Council was looking to raise funds for the defibrillator we stepped in to help. It's great being able to leave a legacy and to give something back to a community that welcomed us with open arms."
A briefcase-sized box will house the defibrillator, which gives clear spoken instructions on how it should be used. In the UK, over 30,000 people have a cardiac arrest outside of hospital care each year with survival rates as high as 75 per cent if treated with prompt defibrillation.
Welcoming the donation, Dr Kevin Feltham Chairman of Kibworth Harcourt Parish Council and County Councillor said: "We are fortunate to have defibrillators at the health centres and Kibworth School but they are only accessible during office hours. This gift from Waters Homes enabled us to install a defibrillator that is always accessible, in one of the busiest parts of the village.
"We must also thank Sarah and Lino Poli at the Boboli restaurant for agreeing to home the apparatus and East Midlands Ambulance Service for their advice and training in CPR."
