We recognise there is a need for more homes in Charnwood and the Council has a key role to help deliver them.

Others also play a significant part. Government set the planning rules and developers build the homes, however, we will influence through our Local Plan and other policies.

The Council will also continue to work with, and support, our local communities to drive improvements for all.

We will:

  • invest in Council homes to raise standards and improve energy efficiency
  • make applying for Council homes a faster and simpler process
  • improve our sheltered accommodation schemes
  • look for opportunities to build or acquire new homes and help tackle homelessness
  • help disabled people adapt their homes, to improve their quality of life.
  • play a role in managing the local private rental sector
  • support local community projects through our outreach officers and community grants.
  • work in partnership with other agencies to tackle anti-social behaviour and make communities safer
  • ensure diversity and inclusivity are celebrated in the borough
  • manage our leisure services, open spaces and sports facilities to support residents’ health and wellbeing
