Neighbourhood Area Designation

In November 2018 Swannington Parish Council applied to North West Leicestershire District Council for designation of a Neighbourhood Plan Area.

Regulation 5A of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 (as inserted by the 2016 The Neighbourhood Planning (General) and Development Management Procedure (Amendment) Regulations) requires that where an application for designation is received from a Parish Council and the area proposed to be designated consists of the whole of the Parish Council’s area then the application should be approved, without the need for consultation. 

The area designation was therefore approved by North West Leicestershire District Council on 7 January 2019.
