Rothley Neighbourhood Plan

Due to essential maintenance being carried out by Pay360, customers may experience online payment disruptions on Sunday July 5 between 4:30-6:30am and Tuesday July 7 between 6-7am. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

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

Rothley Parish Council, through the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group, has prepared a Neighbourhood Plan for the parish.

In accordance with the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 (as amended) the Rothley Neighbourhood Plan and supporting documents were submitted to Charnwood Borough Council on March 12, 2020 for the purpose of consultation, examination and, if appropriate, a referendum ahead of it being ‘made’ (adopted) as part of the local plan for the area.

Charnwood Borough Council has considered the Plan against the statutory requirements set out in paragraph 6 of Schedule 4B of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (as amended) and is satisfied that these have been met and it can proceed to consultation.

However, official Government guidance on staying at home and away from others means that this consultation cannot be carried out in accordance with Regulation 16 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012.

On that basis, the consultation will be delayed until restrictions are lifted. The Neighbourhood Plan and supporting documents submitted are available below:

The consultation on an application for designation as a neighbourhood area by Rothley Parish Council ended on December 11, 2015.

This is the first stage of preparing a neighbourhood plan.

The application was approved by Charnwood Borough Council on December 21, 2015 and the Parish Council has been notified so that they can move to the next stage of preparing their plan.

Their application can be viewed below:

Further information on the Neighbourhood Plan as it develops will be posted here as it becomes available.
