Borough Local Plan

Local Development Framework PictureThe following page outlines the Borough's Local Plan and provides links to the various relevant documents.

The National Planning Policy Framework states that Local Authorities should have up to date and positive Local Plans. The Council adopted its new Local Plan on the 16th April 2019.

Planning Policy Document Preparation

The Council has an up to date list of planning policy documents that are currently being prepared, as well as the latest Local Development Scheme which sets out the timetable for the production of the Local Plan.

Statement of Community Involvement

The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) outlines how the Council proposes to involve residents, businesses, groups and organisations in the preparation of the Local Plan and in making planning decisions.

Area Action Plans

The Oadby and Wigston Town Centres Area Action Plan was superseded by the Council's new Local Plan on the 16th April 2019. Upon adoption of the new Local Plan, the Policies set out within the Area Action Plan (AAP) are no longer valid, however the principles and objectives within the AAP are. The Council is currently producing an up to date guidance document relating to the town and district centre areas.

Supplementary Planning Documents and Supplementary Planning Guidance

Details on all Supplementary Planning Documents (SPD) adopted by the Borough Council can be found on the relevant link. Although supplementary planning documents supersede Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG), there are currently still some SPG's in place.

Annual Monitoring Report

The Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations, states that Local Authorities must make any up-to-date information, which has been collected for monitoring purposes available as soon as information becomes available. To be inconformity with this Statutory Instrument the Council will produce an Annual Monitoring Report to reflect up-to-date information compiled during the previous monitoring year. The Report will measure the degree to which the Council has successfully applied the policies set out in Local Development Documents and measures progress within the Local Plan process. More information can be found on the Annual Monitoring Report pages.

Sustainability Appraisal

The purpose of sustainability appraisal (SA); mandatory under the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004, is to promote sustainable development through the integration of social, environmental and economic considerations in the preparation of new or revised Development Plan Documents (DPD) and supplementary planning documents (SPD). More information can be found on the Sustainability Appraisal pages.
