Sileby Neighbourhood Plan

Sileby Neighbourhood Plan

We set out with great determination almost two years ago to produce a locally owned plan that would help shape the future development of our village. It has been challenging, and at times, more demanding than we ever imagined, but ultimately it has been one of the most rewarding processes to be involved in locally, as we have achieved what we set out to do! At the Borough Council's Cabinet meeting on 16th January, our Sileby Neighbourhood Plan was 'made' part of the statutory development plan for Charnwood. This means it will now be used for decision-making on planning applications by the local planning team, and our policies will have full weight applied to them. Excellent news. More »

Our Neighbourhood Plan Advisory Committee volunteers, our theme group volunteers, Cllr Julie Jones, Rosemary and Julie from the Parish Office, have just been amazing throughout. To stay with a process spanning two years deserves a huge amount of thanks! Guiding us all the way, was Gary Kirk and his team from Your Locale. They worked tirelessly to ensure we developed the right balance of local policies for Sileby, and ensured that these were in conformity with the Borough's local plan and national planning policy. The team's expert guidance is why we had a successful examination and the plan is now embed in the planning system.

As with any process, the work does not end here! Plans always need updating from time to time. The planning system will continue to throw up local challenges, as will our Borough Council as it continues to update the Borough wide Local Plan. Having our plan in place with robust local and up to date evidence gives us an opportunity to make compelling fact-based arguments in favour of our policies, particularly in relation to housing sites. We also have policies and community actions in our plan that will positively shape the environment, community provision and transport. These will need to be planned for and taken forward in a range of ways; some by the Parish Council and some in other ways. Please keep a lookout for further opportunities to get involved.

This plan belongs to our community so thank you to everyone for supporting along the way.
