Fantastic addition to village

The proposed site and the type of building are very appropriate. The site is a good distance from the two older houses and opposite those built in the second half of the 20th century. Shearsby has always been an eclectic mix of buildings and I think that is part of its charm. The position and the type of the proposed building are consistent with others built in the village in the last few decades.

We support the proposal for the following reasons.
The eclectic mix of houses in Shearsby is often enhanced with a new build that will mirror a number of styles already accepted as part of the village environment.
The appearance of the proposed home has a pleasing effect on the street scene being unobtrusively positioned back from the road. The low elevation that follows the lay of the land makes for a subtle construction that together with the choice of sympathetic cladding easily fits with the adjacent farm buildings.
The design and access statement confirms compliance with the National Planning Policy Framework that there should be presumption in favour of sustainable development.
It should also be pointed out that decisions cannot be subjective but only based on planning policy with special regard to the need for additional housing in all areas of the local district.
We consider the proposal meets all the requirements for approval.

I have no objection, as a resident in the village.
Another well presented contribution to the many designs and construction methods in the location.
Any incoming traffic to the property, from visitors and construction vehicles, would normally be on the short road from the A5199, therefore not affecting most of the village and residents.

The plans that have been drawn up looks like they will fit in nicely with the village, and make that area more welcoming

As per our objection to the original proposal, all our previous concerns are still valid.

The building in the new proposal will still have a detrimental impact on this section of the village. In the original rejection letter for the proposal it is stated that the property would be "a congruous intrusion" and a "detriment of the character and appearance of the Shearsby Conservation Area". We feel that these points are still relevant to the new proposal. Also noted in the original rejection, the property is unsustainable as Shearsby has poor accessibility to local services, community facilities and public transport.

Has an ecological survey been undertaken yet? Our concerns for the conservation area, nearby pond and wildlife still remain.

Being directly opposite our house, the development will cause loss of privacy, potential loss of sunlight - particularly the evening sunshine, and will create noise and disturbance.

Furthermore, we still feel there is no need for this kind of development in the village and it does not match the style of housing currently being discussed as part of the neighbourhood plan.

With regard to this application ,i think the architect has delivered a superb design which will blend into the surrounding countryside and will add to the village.

As one of the longest residents, 68 years in Shearsby i can see no reason why this building should not get planning permission. I live directly opposite the Proposed site and the design will blend in with the surrounding buildings in the village.

I wish to register support for the above planning application. I think the architect has come up with a pleasing design that looks as though it has always been part of the wider farm complex.
The concern regarding the construction traffic and school bus, I'm sure can be overcome. The grammar school bus has, only fairly recently, been stopping opposite the proposed site. The Countesthorpe school bus collects and drops off in the Square, and I see no reason why the Leicester Grammar School bus can't do the same if safety seems to be an issue

As a regular visitor to the village i can only say this house will add something special as you enter the village. The design and layout will blend in perfectly with the surrounding Farm houses and buildings giving the impression it has always been there. The design in no way blocks anyone's view of the Church or the surrounding village. As i understand this field is part of the soon to be village plan which has been earmarked for future development.
