This page provides information about the previous stages of consultation for the production of the masterplan for Oadby, including relevant links and documents.
The Planning Policy team created masterplans for both Oadby and Wigston town centres. These set out clear planning frameworks for the future of the centres, including strategies for transport, public realm and design, as well as detailed development guidance on a number of key sites which informs future decisions on development proposals and planning applications. This page sets out details of the Oadby Town Centre Masterplan and links to the document.
Oadby has a niche role as a district centre serving its local population, with a high proportion of independent retailers. Although it sits in close proximity to Leicester, it offers a complementary rather than competing role; competition comes more from nearby Wigston and Fosse Shopping Park.
The town centre is clearly an important provider of local services – with banks, solicitors, and estate agents in plentiful numbers. The Parade is clearly an attraction for these uses, especially at its western end, although such uses do not necessarily contribute to the vibrancy of the shopping experience.
