Under the Localism Act 2011, local communities can produce Neighbourhood Plans, setting out policies on the development and use of land in their area. If the Plans are adopted by Leicester City Council they will have the same weight as other Development Plan documents for the City. The designation of a Neighbourhood Area by the Council is the first stage in producing a Neighbourhood Plan. It establishes the area to be covered by the Plan. In areas that are not within the jurisdiction of a town or parish council, a Neighbourhood Forum must be designated by the Council in order to produce a Neighbourhood Plan.
Because the proposed area does not fall within the jurisdiction of a town or parish council, the proposed Knighton Neighbourhood Plan Forum have applied to the Council for formal designation as a Neighbourhood Forum (under Regulation 8 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012).
We are now consulting on these applications from 24th May 2016 to 5th July 2016.
