The Blaby District Local Plan (Delivery) Development Plan Document (known as the 'Delivery DPD') was adopted by the Council on 4 February 2019.
The Delivery DPD includes site allocations and development management policies. It sits alongside the adopted Core Strategy and these two documents form the development plan for the District that will be used to make decisions on planning applications. These documents replace the Blaby District Local Plan 1999 in its entirety.
The Adoption Statement, Adopted Delivery DPD, Policies Map and Sustainability Appraisal Report are available to download below. Paper copies are available for inspection, during normal opening hours, at the Council Offices and libraries within the District. See the Adoption Statement for further details.
