New homes on Oakham allotments would be too near noisy Oakham-Stamford-Corby railway line
A site for planned housing in Oakham would be too near a noisy railway line for its future occupants.
The Planning Inspectorate has dismissed an appeal from The Burley Estate Farm Partnership, which sought to build up to 40 homes on the former Brooke Road allotments on Brooke Road.
Burley evicted the allotment-holders in 2016 to develop the site, with some users having been there for up to 50 years.
