I am writing to request that you might be able to provide me with details of the population of Loughborough and the surrounding areas? I am trying to find out the population growth over the last 10 years.


Unfortuantly we do not hold information on the population of Charnwood.  We can provide the total number of dwellings from our Council Tax records which at the end of March was 70,673 however we do not record the number of persons residing in these dwellings.
Population data is available from the 2011 census.  The easiest way to find local census data is by using the Neighbourhood Statistics resource from the Office of National Statistics:
You can enter Charnwood as a Local Authority search and this will specific statistics for only this area, or this can be broken down even further using wards or super output areas.
