This page provides details about the Oadby Town Centre Masterplan Issues and Options Paper, as well as the Action Plan and includes relevant documentation.
This options stage of the study has involved the generation of different levels of intervention or change in each of the areas or sites identified through the baseline report. This has been informed, by the baseline research, discussion, best practice and professional knowledge and experience. The draft options have been changed in the light of the outcomes of the options workshop, and then taken forward for further assessment as set out in this report.
Oadby still retains some of its village characteristics with a mixture of uses, preserving the appearance of its organic growth. This is centred on the oldest remaining part of Oadby around St. Peter’s Church and stretched along London Road towards the more recent developments on the Parade.
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 Park.
The town centre is clearly an important provider of local services – with banks, solicitors, and especially 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.
