Current Consultations

Throughout the year we consult with residents, business owners, visitors and stakeholders on a range of topics. These consultations can be found below, followed by results and findings from selected consultations.

Air Quality Consultation

Our comprehensive new plan will replace the previous Action Plan first introduced in 2014. Work on the plan has seen the Council shift priorities to offer deliverable and sustainable objectives.

Setting out to improve air quality in the district, the plan’s objectives include:

  • Monitoring Nitrogen Dioxide levels throughout the district
  • Work with local schools, businesses and Leicestershire County Council to try and reduce traffic levels
  • To implement the Walk and Ride Blaby initiative to connect communities and places by creating and improving a sustainable transport network

The Council is also keen to work with taxi drivers, bringing them into the next generation of car ownership and encourage a shift towards EV ownership. 24 charging points will be delivered in Blaby District Council’s car parks in the coming months as part of a commitment to EV ownership.

You can use the link below to access the Action Plan. Views can be sent to environmental.services@blaby.gov.uk before 21 November 2020.

Housing Strategy 2020-2025

We are developing our new Housing Strategy to replace the current Housing Strategy 2015-2020. The strategy is an overarching document covering the variety of strategies and policies we use to develop and improve the Housing Sector in our District.

Our ambitions remain to make Blaby a great place to live and ensure all households have a place to call home that is both affordable and suitable for their needs.

We would welcome your views on our draft Housing Strategy attached below. We have focussed on three main strategic priorities for the lifetime of this strategy.

Strategic Priority One: Increasing the supply of Affordable Homes
Strategic Priority Two: Provide Specialist Housing for Vulnerable Groups
Strategic Priority Three: Prevent Homelessness and end Rough Sleeping in the Blaby District

Our consultation is open for 6 weeks starting on Monday 2 November. All views are welcome and can be sent to housing.strategies@blaby.gov.uk. The consultation will close on December 14.
