The City Council has begun preparation of a new Leicester Local Plan which will set out a vision and objectives for the growth of the city over the next 15 years.
The new Local Plan will replace the 2006 Local Plan and the 2014 Core Strategy. It will set out how the council will respond to local priorities and how it will meet the social, economic and environmental challenges and opportunities that face the city. It will identify broad locations, scale and type of development and supporting infrastructure that will be required in the city.
The Issues and Options consultation stage marks the start of the process for the new local plan. It will provide the community of Leicester and other stakeholders with the opportunity to suggest any issues that they feel should be addressed, comment on which options they think are most appropriate, or tell us about any other options that they may have.
We have an opportunity to further improve the quality of life in Leicester and make the most of what is special and unique about our city.
It is your city and we want you to help us shape its future development so have a look at the ideas in this document and tell us what you think the big issues are.
Public consultation on Issues and Options will begin on Wednesday 15th October and will end on 31st January 2015.
