We’re kicking off the public consultation (sorry – couldn’t resist the football pun!) at a public exhibition on Friday 13 October 2017 (no, we’re not superstitious) between 3 pm and 7 pm at Glinton Village Hall.
Members of our development project team will be there to answer questions (about the plans – not football) and there will also be members of the football club available to explain what the plans would mean for them.
The draft masterplan for the Glinton development
Our proposals include a mixture of house types, including 30 per cent ‘affordable’ housing, catering for first-time buyers, families and the elderly. There would also be areas of public open space with a children’s play area for new and existing residents to enjoy.
Glinton and Northborough Football Club does not at present have a permanent home and hires playing facilities at five different venues in the Glinton, Northborough and Werrington area.
Stuart Craig, director of football at the club, said: “We have been working closely with Larkfleet Homes and are really excited about the proposals. With over 400 players ranging from five to 85 years old, the proposals would provide us with a much needed permanent home and help to put the club at the heart of the local community."
Hannah Guy, planning manager at Larkfleet Homes, said: “The proposed new development would help to meet growing housing needs both nationally and locally and boost investment in the area. We’re also delighted to be able to help Glinton and Northborough Football Club. It’s a great example of a community football club and we hope that the new facilities will enable it, and the local area, to flourish further.
“We’re keen to consult with people about our proposals before we submit a planning application and would like to encourage people to come along to the public exhibition on 13 October to ask questions and share their views.”
So there you are – that’s your invitation. Come and talk to us at the exhibition.
