Neighbourhood plans

For a full list of refuse and recycling collection dates and Council opening times over the Christmas period, head to this webpage.

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.

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.
