Leicester residents urged to have their say on the plans for the future of housing in the region.Â
In the draft Local Plan, the council have set out policies and proposals for the city’s growth over the next 15 years. This includes a wide range of issues from future plans for housing, transport and economic development.
The consultation will close on December 7 and is available to view at consultations.leicester.gov.uk
City mayor Peter Soulsby said: ‘We invite local residents, business and any other interested parties to comment on our draft Local Plan.
‘A Local Plan is something every local authority has to have in place, by law. It covers the way we propose to develop the city over the next 15 years. Without such a plan, it would be harder for us to protect wildlife and our built heritage, make plans for a greener and healthier city, or effectively accommodate the growing needs of our city.
‘The contents of the draft plan are very much initial proposals for consideration and are in no way fixed at this stage. This draft will be followed by a more developed â€˜Submission Draftâ€™ plan, which will also be consulted upon, and then by a public examination which will give further opportunities for people to comment on the emerging proposals.’
