Neighbourhood Planning in Leicestershire

The Localism Act 2011 brought in a range of new powers, giving greater control to communities. One of the new tools introduced was Neighbourhood Planning.

As part of the support package available for neighbourhood plan groups in Leicestershire, we facilitate a Neighbourhood Planning Network. For further information about the Network and what it can offer CLICK HERE

Neighbourhood Plans are unlike other formal planning policy documents, in that they are designed to be prepared by communities and will only be brought into force if they are supported by the majority of the community they cover. Recognising that all communities are different, Neighbourhood Plans can vary in content and detail; they are able to cover a range of planning issues or focus on a single topic of importance to the community. For more information about Neighbourhood Plans, what they can be used for and our handy Toolkit visit the Leicestershire County Council website.

Nationally there have been over 2,200 start the Neighbourhood Planning process since 2012 and over 410 successful Neighbourhood Plan referendums have taken place. In Leicestershire we now have 97 active community groups, of which we have 16 Adopted Plans and 63 Designated Areas. To view the full status list of Neighbourhood Plans in Leicestershire CLICK HERE
