The Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 (as amended) requires Local Planning Authorities to prepare a Core Strategy as part of their Local Plan. The Local Plan (Core Strategy) sets out the vision, objectives, strategy and core policies for the spatial planning of the District up to 2029.
The Core Strategy states how the Council proposes to accommodate the need for new homes, jobs and infrastructure that is required in the District. It proposes a sustainable approach which balances development requirements whilst protecting important areas of the natural and built environment.
The Local Plan (Core Strategy) was adopted by Blaby District Council on 21 February 2013. It is the first part of the Local Plan and sits alongside the Local Plan Delivery DPD adopted on 4 February 2019.
