Publication Local Plan June 2016

The Council has previously consulted on the emerging North West Leicestershire Local Plan which will set out the planning framework for the district up to 2031. It comprises a vision, strategic objectives, site allocations and development management policies. It will be used to guide development in the determination of planning applications over the plan period.

On 28th June 2016 the content of the Publication Local Plan was agreed at a meeting of Full Council. Before the Local Plan could submit the Local Plan to the Secretary of State the Council was required, in accordance with Regulation 19 of The Town and Country Planning (Local Planning)(England) Regulations 2012, to publish the Local Plan and to invite representations on it. 

The consultation on the Publication Local Plan and accompanying documents ran for a period of 6 weeks beginning on Monday 4 July until 5pm on Monday 15 August 2016.

All of the comments that were received were submitted to the Secretary of State and considered as part of the current public examination of the Local Plan by an independent Planning Inspector. Further information can be found on the Local Plan Examination webpage.

Notification request - You can still request to be notified at an address/email address of either of the following:

i. Publication of the recommendations of any person appointed to carry out an independent examination of the Local Plan

ii. The adoption of the North West Leicestershire Local Plan
