Harborough District Council released the first draft of the new Local Plan on 9th September 2016, and this stated the preferred SDA option is Lutterworth, with a reserve of Scraptoft. The Kibworth SDA is not therefore currently identified as an option, but this decision needs to be ratified by full council in October. The decision may be challenged by the developer and is also likely to be scrutinised at the Local Plan Public Inquiry next year.
If you would like your email address added, and treated with complete confidence, please email the chairman of the Society - Dr Kevin Feltham at email@example.com or the clerk of Kibworth Harcourt Parish Council. » Less

Waters Homes leave Health Legacy in the Kibworths
Award-winning housing developer Waters Homes has donated £650 to help buy a defibrillator for the village of Kibworth Harcourt, Leicestershire, near where it recently built a selection of two three-bedroom houses for Seven Locks Housing.
The life-saving equipment has been wall mounted outside Boboli restaurant on Main Street, giving people 24-hour emergency access to a heart-start machine.
Dominic Waters, development director at Waters Homes said: "As soon as we heard that Kibworth Harcourt Parish Council was looking to raise funds for the defibrillator we stepped in to help. It's great being able to leave a legacy and to give something back to a community that welcomed us with open arms."
A briefcase-sized box houses the defibrillator, which gives clear spoken instructions on how it should be used. In the UK, over 30,000 people have a cardiac arrest outside of hospital care each year with survival rates as high as 75 per cent if treated with prompt defibrillation.
Welcoming the donation, Dr Kevin Feltham Chairman of Kibworth Harcourt Parish Council and County Councillor said: "We are fortunate to have defibrillators at the health centres and Kibworth School but they are only accessible during office hours. This gift from Waters Homes enabled us to install a defibrillator that is always accessible, in one of the busiest parts of the village.
"We must also thank Sarah and Lino Poli at the Boboli restaurant for agreeing to home the apparatus and East Midlands Ambulance Service for their advice and training in CPR."
