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.  That review is now underway. 

We are undertaking the review in two parts:

Partial Review

The Partial Review seeks solely to amend Policy S1 (and supporting text) of the adopted Local Plan.  The Council submitted the Partial Review to the Planning Inspectorate on 18 February 2020.

-        Partial Review Pre-submission consultation

-        Partial Review Examination

Substantive Review

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 also identify potential employment sites to meet the identified need, which was not addressed through the adopted Local Plan, as well as dealing with any issues arising from Leicester City Council's declaration of an unmet housing need.

A report outlining the reasons for undertaking the review in two parts was taken to the Council’s Cabinet on 16 July 2019.

Local Plan Committee

The Council operates a Local Plan Committee that considers various issues relating to the Local Plan Review.  Full details on its role, membership and minutes of previous meetings can be found on the Local Plan Committee page.
