Green Wedges

Overview

Areas of green wedge primarily seek to guide the development form of urban areas.

The presence of the green wedge helps to maintain settlement identity whilst providing green infrastructure links between settlements. A joint methodology was compiled by six Leicestershire councils to develop a consistent approach to the assessment of existing and new green wedges.

There are two green wedges within the borough, the Hinckley/Barwell/Earl Shilton/Burbage Green Wedge and the Rothley Brook Meadows Green Wedge.

Hinckley/Barwell/Earl Shilton/Burbage Green Wedge

The Hinckley/Barwell/Earl Shilton/Burbage Green Wedge Review (PDF) was published in April 2020. The purpose of the review is to assess the functionality of the Hinckley/Barwell/Earl Shilton/Burbage Green Wedge to identify whether revisions to the boundary are required through the Local Plan Review.

Rothley Brook Meadow Green Wedge

The Rothley Brook Meadow Green Wedge (PDF) was published in September 2020. The aim of the review is to assess the functionality of the Rothley Brook Green Wedge to identify whether revisions to the boundary are required through the Local Plan Review.

The Green Wedge Reviews are part of the evidence base for the preparation of Local Plan.
