Local Plan Delivery DPD

The Blaby District Local Plan (Delivery) Development Plan Document (known as the 'Delivery DPD') was adopted by the Council on 04 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.

All documents, including the Adoption Statement, Adopted Delivery DPD, Policies Map and Sustainability Appraisal Report are available to download below.


Paper copies are available to view at our Narborough Offices and libraries within the District. See the Adoption Statement for further details.


The Local Plan Delivery DPD was submitted to the Planning Inspectorate on 23 March 2018. Further information about the Examination is set out on the Delivery DPD Examination webpage. The Inspector's Report concluded that the Delivery DPD was sound subject to a number of Main Modifications.

The Council undertook a 'call for sites' exercise between November 2013 and January 2014 and invited interested parties (including Parish Councils, landowners, agents and developers) to submit sites they wished to be considered for development through the Delivery DPD.

This call for sites covered all types of potential land uses, including housing, employment, retail, recreation, green spaces and others.
