Neighbourhood plans

A Neighbourhood plan is a planning document custom-made by local people which allows communities to shape the development of their area.

Residents can have a say on where they want new homes, shops and offices to be built, what those buildings should look like and what infrastructure should be provided.

The first Charnwood Borough neighbourhood plan has already been approved for Thurcaston and Cropston and we are hoping to see a lot more borough neighbourhoods following suit and helping to shape the future of this borough.

Thrussington Neighbourhood Plan

Thrussington Parish Council have submitted the Thrussington Neighbourhood Plan and supporting documents to Charnwood Borough Council for examination.

Who can apply for a neighbourhood plan?

A plan can be put forward either by town or parish councils, or by a neighbourhood forum, and can be used to establish general planning policies for the development and use of land in your local area.

Neighbourhood forums are designated community groups responsible for neighbourhood planning for areas without parishes.

For more information on creating neighbourhood plans, please visit our dedicated Local Plan website for a more detailed understanding on plans and the process involved.
