Sileby Parish Council are currently reviewing the Sileby Neighbourhood Plan.

Details can be found below.

Made (Adopted) Plan

On December 15, 2022 Charnwood Borough Council "made" the Sileby Neighbourhood Plan Review part of Charnwood Borough Council's development plan, in accordance with Regulation 19 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 (as amended).

Approval Process

The Examination Report concludes that the Plan Review includes material modifications which do not change the nature of the Plan and which would require examination but not a referendum for the following reasons:

  • revised policies largely update those in the ‘made’ Plan;
  • where there are additional policies these do not change the nature of the Plan when considered alongside the made Plan; and
  • modifications made within the review bring the plan up to date to reflect changes in national and local planning policy.

Charnwood Borough Council has therefore determined that a referendum will not be held for the Sileby Neighbourhood Plan Review. The decision to “make” the plan will be considered at the Council’s next available Cabinet meeting, which will be held on December 15, 2022. Cabinet papers for this meeting will be published on the Modern.Gov website.

Cabinet will decide whether to “make” the below version of the document, which has been modified to include the recommended modifications in the Examination Report.

SEA Determination

Following the regulation 16 consultation and examination, Charnwood Borough Council has issued its final determination on the Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) Screening report:


Charnwood Borough Council has appointed examiner Andrew Matheson MRTPI to undertake the independent examination of the Sileby Neighbourhood Plan Review. The role of the examiner is to consider the submitted plan and representations made.
