Local Plan examination has begun

A programme of examination dates for the proposed Local Plan Delivery Development Plan Document (Delivery DPD) have now begun.

The Delivery DPD is the second part of Blaby District Council’s overall Local Plan. The Local Plan is an important set of documents that help determine the outcome of planning applications.

Sites for new homes at Kirby Muxloe, Glenfield and Leicester Forest East and an employment site in Enderby are included in the Delivery DPD.

A new policies map shows where development in the district should be focused and the important environmental assets that should be protected.

The independently appointed Planning Inspector, Victoria Lucas LLB MCD MRTPI, has published her Matters, Issues and Questions, Examination Guidance Note, and Hearing Sessions Timetable.

Public hearings forming part of the examination process will be conducted by Ms. Lucas.

Examination Hearings started on 31st July and will take place in the Council Chamber at the Council Offices in Narborough.

All Delivery DPD documents are available to view at www.blaby.gov.uk/deliverydpd-examination.

Information is also on display in local libraries and at the Council’s Narborough offices.
