Sileby is in the process of producing a Neighbourhood Plan. A Neighbourhood Plan Advisory Committee along with a number of themed groups have been formed to prepare the plan, made up of volunteers from the village and some parish councillors, all supported by Neighbourhood Planning consultants 'YourLocale', that will be used by Charnwood Borough Council when deciding Developers Planning Proposals..
The aim of this Neighbourhood Plan is to build and learn from previous community engagement and village plans and put forward clear wishes of the community regarding future development. It has been produced with a realistic intention to deliver local aspirations within the context of the strategic planning framework, and to capture actions that are important to the community, but which need to be pursued as 'projects' through other delivery means.

Neighbourhood Plan Kickstarter Meeting - 21st Feb 2017
On Tuesday, 21 February a Neighbourhood Plan Community Event was held at the Community Centre. This event was held to help everyone understand what a Neighbourhood Plan is and the benefits, to the village, of producing one. The event was fairly well received and around 40 people attended from different parts of the community. We are delighted that a number of residents have volunteered to form an Advisory Committee, along with some of our Parish Councillors. To help bring the Plan together the Advisory Committee will work with our consultant, Gary Kirk, Managing Director, of YourLocale. We appreciate it is a large undertaking to produce a Neighbourhood Plan but it is one which will help shape the development of our village in the years to come. This is a combined process, it cannot solely be a Parish Council initiative, and we would very much welcome input from all residents. See Presentation here.
