Strategic Growth Plan

A draft Strategic Growth Plan is being developed by a partnership formed by Leicester City and Leicestershire County councils, the seven local borough and district authorities and the Leicester and Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership (LLEP).

It puts forward proposals for the new housing and transport improvements that would be needed to attract jobs and investment to Leicester and Leicestershire from now until 2050. The final version of the plan will provide strategic direction and help shape the Local Plans that the city, borough and district councils are or will be preparing or reviewing. It will also be used to support bids for Government funding to deliver the infrastructure needed to support growth.

Consultation on the Draft Plan took place from 11 January-10 May 2018. Responses are now being reviewed and will be reported, in the first instance, to the Members’ Advisory Group.

A copy of the Draft Plan, summary leaflet and evidence used in its preparation are available on the dedicated web site.  Please use this link:
