Adopted Local Plan

Saved and Expired PoliciesMapbase

The Local Plan was adopted on 12th January 2004. Over time it will be replaced by the Charnwood Local Plan. Under the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 policies in the Plan were “saved” for a 3 year period ending on the 27th September 2007.

On the 21st September 2007 the Secretary of State issued a direction to save a number of policies in the local Plan beyond this 3 year period. Policies on the list remain part of the development plan and will continue to inform decisions the Council makes on planning applications.

Local Plan policies not listed in the Direction expired on the 27th September 2007 and no longer form part of the development plan and will not be used for making decisions on planning applications. Please refer to the document below which sets out the status of each Local Plan policy and, where applicable, explains why the policy no longer applies. 

If you have any questions on the Local Plan and the Secretary of State’s Direction please contact the Planning Policy Team on 01509 634769 or by email
