Market Bosworth Neighbourhood Development Plan


Following a successful application in 2011 to be a frontrunner of the Neighbourhood Planning Vanguard scheme, members of Market Bosworth Parish Council and residents of the parish formed a Neighbourhood Forum to prepare a Neighbourhood Plan. The draft Neighbourhood Plan was prepared by the forum members, in consultation with residents of the parish and statutory consultees, and with assistance from the council and the Rural Communities Council.

The Neighbourhood Area was designated in 2013 in accordance with the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 and work on the preparation of the plan began, setting out land use policies which would be used to determine planning applications within the neighbourhood area. The plan allocates an area of land south of Station Road for a mixed use development comprising residential and employment land.

Following a majority vote in favour of the Market Bosworth Neighbourhood Development Plan on Thursday 3 September 2015, it is now 'made' and will be used to determine planning applications in the neighbourhood area alongside existing planning policy. View the Post referendum decision statement (PDF) and the adopted Market Bosworth Neighbourhood Development Plan (PDF)

Minor review

In 2020 the Market Bosworth Vision Planning Group undertook a review of how well the made plan meets the basic conditions and accords with national planning policy and the local plan. It concludes that no updates to the plan are necessary now, other than publishing the housing need assessment of July 2020 which will be an important material consideration in applying the housing policies of the plan.
