Leicester City Council is creating a Local Plan for Leicester.  This will define the City’s development policies for the period up to 2032.

What you can do…

Complete our own questionnaire to gather local views.

The Council has now launched a more detailed consultation, the focus of which is the Emerging options document, which explains a number of the issues facing the city and the options for dealing with those issues.  The Local Plan Consultation will be discussed at the Knighton Ward Community Meeting on 29th August 2017.

We have created a post on this website that explains what you can do about the Consultation.

The Neighbourhood Forum is encouraging residents and local groups to respond to the consultation, and will be discussing it at a meeting of the Forum on 17th October.

The consultation, links to all the documents and details of exhibitions about the Local Plan can be found on the City Council’s Consultation site.  The consultation closed on 31st October 2017.

Our response can be found here.


The Council consulted on the Leicester Local Plan 2016 – 2031 Sustainability Appraisal Including Strategic Environmental Assessment Scoping Report, which sets the context for the Local Plan and specifies a number of existing policies and plans that apply and legislation that needs to be taken into account.  That consultation closed on 5th December 2016.

Officers from the Planning Department of the City Council spoke about the Local Plan at the meeting of the Forum on Tuesday 20th September 2016.
