The District Planning Authority considers that the applicant has failed to satisfactorily demonstrate that the proposed layout could enable remediation and mitigation works to be undertaken to address the risk posed to future occupants and surrounding residents as a result of the site’s previous use as a landfill site. It has not been satisfactorily demonstrated that the proposed layout would not result in the development being contrary to Policy DM13 of the Blaby District Local Plan (Delivery) Development Plan Document (2019) and to the advice contained within paragraphs 183, 184 and 185 of the National Planning Policy Framework (2021).
