Earl Shilton and Barwell area action plan

Overview of the area action plan

The purpose of the Earl Shilton and Barwell Area Action Plan (AAP) Development Plan Document (DPD) is to set out the strategy for future development across the two settlements.

The AAP allocates land for housing, employment, retail, recreation, open space and community facilities within two sustainable urban extensions north-west of Barwell and south-east of Earl Shilton. It also contains policies which relate to proposals that require site-specific conditions such as design guidance, conservation and protection of open spaces and further policies, which will be used in the day-to-day assessment of planning applications across the entire settlements.

Following the examination of the document by the Planning Inspector appointed by the Secretary of State, the Earl Shilton and Barwell Area Action Plan was formally adopted by Council on 23 September 2014.
