Emerging planning policy

We’re working on a new local plan to set out a vision and objectives for Leicester’s growth over the next 15 years.

Draft Local Plan consultation

Our draft Local Plan consultation has been postponed until further notice due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) emergency. However, a number of documents are available which set out our current thinking in terms of evidence to support planning and design in the draft local plan. Their content can therefore be considered as part of any relevant planning application. 

Call for sites

We're asking interested parties to suggest sites which could help meet the city’s need for new homes and jobs as well as other land uses.

The details submitted under this ‘Call for Sites’ will be assessed by us for inclusion in the Leicester’s Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment. Ultimately, sites may be considered for inclusion in the Brownfield Land register and/or the next consultation draft of Leicester’s Local Plan.

If you would like to submit details of a site, you can do so using the link below:

Please note that a site plan of sufficient quality to adequately identify the site will be required. Guidance notes are available on the consultation website.

The closing date for submissions was the 16 December 2018.

Please use the form attached at the bottom of this page to provide information on sites to be assessed for inclusion in Leicester’s Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment.
