The Strategic Growth Plan puts forward proposals for the new housing and transport improvements that would be needed to attract jobs and investment to Leicester and Leicestershire from now until 2050.
It will also be used to support bids for Government funding to deliver the infrastructure needed to support growth.
At the end of the consultation period, responses on the Draft Plan will be considered and a final version of the Plan will be prepared during 2018.
The final version of the Plan will be used as a framework for preparing Local Plans.
Together with the Strategic Transport Plan and Local Industrial Strategy, the Strategic Growth Plan will be used as a bidding document to secure funding for essential infrastructure and services in the area
