The North West Leicestershire Local Plan was adopted on 21 November 2017. It sets out a strategy for delivering the homes, jobs and infrastructure needed in the district between 2011 and 2031.

Policy S1 of the plan says that we would start a review within three months of adoption.   

We are undertaking the review in two parts - a Partial Review and a Substantive Review.  The Partial Review has now been completed.  

Substantive Review

What is the Substantive Review?

This is a wider ranging review of the adopted Local Plan taking into account changes that have occurred since adoption, including the publication of a new National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF).  It will need to identify potential housing and employment sites to meet the identified need, along with the new infrastructure required as well as reviewing the existing policies. More information can be found on the Local Plan Substantive Review page. 

Why is the review required?

Regulations require that Local Plans are reviewed at least once very 5 years.

What has happened so far?

We have undertaken a number of consultations. More information can be found on the Local Plan Review – progress so far page.

What is the timetable for the review?

We are currently reviewing the Local Development Scheme and will publish it once it is finalised.
