Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council is the local Planning Authority and they have full powers when considering planning applications.
Market Bosworth Parish Council is consulted on all applications falling within the parish boundary. These are considered at the Parish Council Meetings which are usually held once a month. The Parish Council's comments are passed to Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council for consideration. The planning officers may take the comments on board or disregard as they see fit.
For residents, you must be aware of the Conservation Area as this imposes further restrictions should your property be located within it. There are also a large number of trees with TPOs (Tree Preservation Orders) and you should check with Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council before you carry out any work on a tree within the town.
See the main Planning page for latest applications.
