We are in the process of preparing a new local plan for the borough for the period up to 2036.
The new local plan will include strategic and detailed policies and will be prepared to provide for a longer plan period than the adopted Charnwood Core Strategy which provides the strategy up to 2028.
On October 17, the Council’s Cabinet approved a proposal to hold a full public consultation on the new draft local plan.
The draft local plan identifies a preferred option for the development strategy for Charnwood taking account of the reasonable alternatives and proposes a range of draft policies to deliver that strategy.
If the Cabinet agrees, there will be a public consultation on the draft local plan starting later in the year. This is currently proposed to be between Monday, November 4 and Monday, December 16, 2019.
Details of the public consultation and how to respond will be made available on this page and will also be highlighted on social media and via e-mail alerts.
There is some more information about the local plan in our press release issued on Friday, October 4.
