Welcome to the Charnwood Borough Council Local Plan website. Our Local Plan will set out how the Borough of Charnwood will grow over the next 15 years.

Charnwood needs a Local Plan because people are living longer, there are a growing number of single households and the population in Charnwood is growing.

Not only that, but homes are more expensive than most people can afford and the Council wants to meet the needs of its communities which includes providing affordable homes to buy and rent.

The Local Plan will also identify places where new homes and facilities, including schools, parks, roads and employment land, can be built.

It will mean the Council will be better able to protect our countryside and natural heritage by rejecting inappropriate planning applications for homes or businesses.

It will help us to make better use of derelict and vacant land to improve the quality of neighbourhoods in need of regeneration.

Our Local Plan will help to identify and guide where development will go.  On this website you can find out:

  • what the Local Plan is all about
  • more about our Core Strategy,
  • see where we are planning for growth to happen,
  • have a look at our evidence base and
  • key up-coming dates
