Tollerton Parish Council has called an extra-ordinary meeting to consider possible changes to the green belt that would bring significant new housing development to the village. Councillors took the unusual step following the publication of consultation options for three new housing sites in the village of Tollerton.
The rural village of Tollerton currently has just over 800 homes and is already expected to provide 4000 new homes on former green belt land. The options for three new sites within the village are in addition to the 4000 and have been identified as:
- East of Tollerton Lane – up to 50 homes
- West of Tollerton Lane and North of Medina Drive – up to 360 homes
- Behind Burnside Grove – up to 180 homes
Councillors will consider their response to the consultation at the Extra-ordinary meeting at 7.30pm on Wednesday 22 March in the Parish Rooms. Tollerton residents have been sharing their views online and will also have the opportunity to share their views at the meeting before the Council agrees its comments.
“We’ve had an overwhelming response from Tollerton Residents on Social Media and have called this meeting to hear from them first hand before submitting our response.
We’re also asking residents to complete our neighbourhood plan survey so that we can create a plan to meet the needs of the community”

A Plan for Tollerton
The parish council has also launched a more detailed consultation to find out how residents think that the parish should develop. Last year residents told the parish council that they would like to have a stronger voice in local planning matters and so the parish council started the formal process to develop a neighbourhood plan. Information on the neighbourhood plan and consultation has been published on the parish council website
