The latest Public Realm Strategy SPD is an update to the existing Strategy (that was adopted in 2012) and is a planning guidance document that focuses on public realm and public spaces within the Borough of Oadby and Wigston. The document will supplement current planning policies contained within the Councils Local Plan and provide greater guidance for any development affecting the Borough’s public realm. The document is a material consideration in all development proposals that have an impact on public realm within the Borough.

The Borough of Oadby and Wigston is compact, urban in nature and adjoins the southern boundary of Leicester City. As set out in the Local Plan, the town centre of Wigston and the two district centres of Oadby and South Wigston are fundamental to the aspirations, improvements and development of the entire Borough. Allied to this, must be an improvement in the quality of the Borough’s public realm. The Borough Council must develop a vision for its streets and spaces of the three centres, to improve, not only their image, but to establish a better position for potential investment. The Public Realm Strategy SPD sets out the vision and how the Council will achieve the vision.
