Draft Charnwood Local Plan 2019-36

We have launched a consultation about our draft Charnwood Local Plan 2019-36.

The draft plan sets out how the Council will balance future growth in the area while making sure the environment is looked after and communities have the infrastructure they need.

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.

As well as providing housing and jobs, the local plan considers the quality of design, climate change, renewable energy and improving biodiversity. It also considers how we secure infrastructure for our growing communities, including health services, schools and the transport system.

We would like to hear your views on the draft local plan. The consultation runs until 5pm on Monday, December 16. Please have a look at the draft local plan and the sustainability appraisal which is a key supporting document.
