Hinckley Councillors call for local landmark to be saved

Originally published by Hinckley & Bosworth Liberal Democrats
The Hinckley Lib Dems are campaigning to save a local landmark.
The "Big Pit" is a popular local water feature off Ashby Road in Hinckley but is now being threatened by a planning application that would have it filled in and houses built over it.

The planning application for this has gone into Leicestershire County Council.
Local Lib Dem Councillors have written in to oppose the plans and are leading the campaign to block the proposals.

Hinckley Lib Dem County Councillor Michael Mullaney added, "I hope as many residents as possible will sign our petition online at www.bosworthlibdems.org.uk to save the "Big Pit" from development.

"We urge as many residents as possible to write into Leicestershire County Council to object"

Objections to the plans can be sent by post to:
Planning, Historic and Natural Environment
Chief Executive's Department (ROOM 400)
Leicestershire County Council
County Hall
Glenfield, Leicester
