Core Strategy Consultation 2012

Core strategy may 2012 - pre-submission consultation

North West Leicestershire District Council published its Pre-Submission Core Strategy for a 6 week consultation from Monday 28th May 2012 to Monday 9th July 2012. Although the consultation period has now ended details about the consultation and the document itself can be found below.

On the 24th April 2012 a meeting of Full Council agreed the Council's Core Strategy. The Core Strategy establishes the planning framework for the district upto 2031. Before the Council can submit the Core Strategy to the Secretary of State we have to provide an opportunity for representations to be made in respect of the Core Strategy. Any representations received will be considered by the Council before the document is submitted. Once the Core Strategy is submitted an independent Planning Inspector will be appointed to hold a public examination to consider whether the Core Strategy is legally compliant and is sound. Further details about this can be found on the Representation Guidance Note below.
