Cabinet to consider growth plan consultation

A draft strategy which will help guide development in Leicester and Leicestershire, including Charnwood, over the next three decades will be considered by borough councillors.

Charnwood Borough Council’s Cabinet will consider approving a public consultation exercise for the Strategic Growth Plan for the Leicester and Leicestershire area at its meeting on December 14.

Cllr Eric Vardy, the Council’s lead member for Planning, Inward Investment and Tourism Strategy, said: “This is a long-term, high-level strategy for Leicester and Leicestershire.

“It is important we plan ahead and make sure development not only occurs in the most sustainable places but also brings the infrastructure our communities need. We are committed to creating a strong and lasting economy.

“Charnwood is planning to accommodate its own growth and many of the homes in the strategy have already been accounted for.

“We will continue to work together with the city, county and other district councils about planning for the future.”

The strategic growth plan is the overarching plan which will set out the aspirations for delivering housing, jobs and infrastructure until 2050.

The draft document contains proposals for growth areas in the north and south of the county and around the south and eastern edge of Leicester.

The borough council’s Cabinet will be asked to approve the second consultation over the plan. One was held in 2016.
