Planning

Residents in Leicester and its outlying areas, including Birstall, Thurmaston and Wanlip in Charnwood, are to be asked to continue to follow stricter lockdown restrictions for at least two weeks, and non-essential shops will be closed. More information - including frequently asked questions and a postcode checker - can be found at www.charnwood.gov.uk/restrictions.

We are responsible for making decisions on planning applications (in line with local and national policies).

Another area of planning which people may be familiar with is building control which ensures buildings are structurally sound and built to required health and safety standards.

We also deal with the natural and built environment such as historic buildings, listed buildings and conservation areas; planning policy which looks at long-term strategic planning in the borough; economic development and regeneration and sustainability.
