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. 

Progress made so far

You can read more about the work we have done so far on our Local Plan Review – Progress so far page.

We are currently reviewing submissions made during the recent Emerging Options consultation.  

We are also in the process of updating various parts of our Evidence Base.  

Gypsy and Traveller Site Identification

It was the Council’s intention to plan to meet the identified need for Gypsy and Traveller sites through the production of a specific Gypsy and Traveller Site Allocation Development Plan Document (DPD). However it was agreed at a meeting of the Council's Local Plan Advisory Committee on 7 November 2018 that the needs of Gypsies and Travellers should now be addressed as part of the Local Plan review rather than through a separate Development Plan Document.

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.
