Charnwood Local Plan 2021-2037

A public enquiry, expected in Spring 2022, will examine the draft Charnwood Local Plan against all responses submitted during the July/August 2021 consultation period, including objections from the Parish Council, residents, our local councillor and our MP. The draft plan and a summary of objections can be viewed using the links in the box below.

Updates will be posted on this page.

New Charnwood Local Plan - UPDATED 14th August
Charnwood Borough Council is consulting residents, businesses, community groups and other stakeholders on the Charnwood Local Plan 2021-37 before submitting it to the Government. On page 66 of the pre-submission draft document, there are proposals for a total of 90 new houses to be built, in the two locations highlighted in amber below.

The six-week consultation runs from Monday July 12 until Monday August 23, 2021 at 5pm. Instructions on how to respond are available using the first link above, and in the leaflet delivered in July to all homes in the village. Following the second  informational leaflet delivered last week, a meeting was held on the green on Thursday 12th August.  

As of 14th August there are now 9 days left to respond. Please do so, if you haven’t already. If you’d like to use the attached sample letter as a basis, please do. Note that sending this letter by post or email to the address at the bottom of the letter is a valid way of submitting your response.

The full report of objections produced by the Parish Council Working Group, including updates (highlighted in yellow) since our 12th August discussions, is available here.
