New Local Plan

Issues and Options Consultation

The new Local Plan sets out a blueprint for how the District will grow and change over the next 15 years and beyond. This is the first stage in the process of preparing the Plan. We are seeking views of residents, businesses and other interested parties on the issues and options that should be addressed in the Plan and what it ought to contain.

The New Local Plan, when adopted, will replace the current Local Plan (Core Strategy and Delivery DPD).

Copies of the New Local Plan Issues and Options Consultation Document can be found below. Paper copies are also available to view at the Council Offices, Desford Road, Narborough, LE19 2EP and at libraries within the District (during normal opening hours).

The Issues and Options Document includes a series of questions to guide you in responding to the consultation. Please let us know which question you are responding to. Comments should be sent by email to planning.policy@blaby.gov.uk or by mail to: Development Strategy, Blaby District Council, Council Offices, Desford Road, Narborough, Leicester LE19 2EP.

The closing date for comments is 30 September 2019.

If you want us to keep you informed of progress on the Local Plan please tell us to add your details to the Local Plan Consultation Database. In line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018, you can ‘opt out’ and ask to be removed from the database at a later date by contacting us using the address or email above.

Previous Work on the New Local Plan

A 'Call for Sites' exercise was undertaken between March and May 2019 to understand what land interests there are in the District for potential housing, employment, retail or other development uses.

We have also started collecting technical evidence to inform the overall approach and policy direction of the new Plan.

We will continue to accept site submissions at this time and a Site Suggestion Form is available to download which provides further details.
