What is the Hinckley Town Centre Area Action Plan?
The Hinckley Town Centre Area Action Plan (AAP) is one of the key documents of the Local Plan 2006 to 2026 (formerly Local Development Framework (LDF)). The AAP focuses on the regeneration of Hinckley town centre and sets out the strategy for the future of the town centre and identifies sites for development. Along with more general policies, the document sets out the council's aspirations for the redevelopment of nine key sites in the town centre to improve Hinckley's range of shops, employment and leisure opportunities for residents and visitors. Planning applications in the town centre need to be in line with the policies in this document.
