New Lubbesthorpe wins major regional planning award

New Lubbesthorpe development was the overall project winner at the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) East Midlands Regional Awards for 2019.

The New Lubbesthorpe site, which lies between Leicester Forest East and Enderby, will deliver 4,250 houses including 873 affordable homes. FPCR have provided landscape, ecology and arboricultural services and co-ordinated the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) work, helping the ERB Drummond Estate to gain outline planning consent. More recently we have prepared the Green Infrastructure package for the first phase of development and undertaken detailed landscape design for Reserved Matters Applications, including part of the community parks network as well as residential plots. Design work is now underway for phase 2.
