Local Plan Review

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.

Consultation on the scope of the Local Plan review

We began initial work to prepare a new Local Plan in 2016. 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.

In accordance with Regulation 18 of The Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) 2012, the Borough Council undertook a consultation in the summer of 2016 to understand and engage with interested parties on the future for Charnwood, the scope of the plan and what it should contain. The results of this consultation are available in the Statement of Consultation and Appendix below.
