Key Developments

We have carried out a vast amount of consultation and research over the last 8 years which has helped us to identify the main areas where development will take place.  Our Core Strategy sets out that this will include:

  • 3,000 homes and 16 ha of employment to the west of Loughborough
  • 4,500 homes and 13 ha of employment to the north of Hamilton/east of Thurmaston
  • around 1,500 homes and 15 ha of employment on land to the north of the A46 at Birstall

The Core Strategy also sets out how the Council aims to help boost economic recovery in the area with plans being developed for the regeneration of the Watermead corridor, further development of the Loughborough Science and Enterprise Park and a regeneration plan for Shepshed.
