Background Reports

Green Wedge Review

This review of the boundaries of the District’s two Green Wedge designations has been carried out in line with the methodology developed in association with other local authorities surrounding Leicester. Detailed boundaries of the Leicester/Scraptoft and the Thurnby/Leicester/Oadby Green Wedges have been assessed in relation to the criteria as set out in the Core Strategy and the case for amending boundaries considered.

Whilst the Green Wedge Review provides technical evidence that will be taken into account in the preparation of the Allocations Plan, the document itself does not represent Council policy. Its findings will be consulted upon as part of the Issues and Options stage of the Allocations Plan later in 2012.
