Strategic Growth Plan for Leicester & Leicestershire: Consultation Draft Plan

The nine local authorities in Leicester & Leicestershire, together with the Local Enterprise Partnership, are preparing a Strategic Growth Plan.
The first stage in the preparation of the Plan was the Strategic Growth Statement which was published in August 2016. This was a high level document which explained why the Plan is being prepared, provided a pen portrait of the area, set out some overall objectives and described the types of options that we would be considering when planning for growth.
A Draft Plan has now been prepared for public consultation. A copy of the Draft Plan and information on the evidence used in its preparation are available on our dedicated web site. They can be found using this link: www.llstrategicgrowthplan.org.uk. More »

The public consultation ends on 5th April 2018.
