About this page

The Core Strategy is a strategic document setting out the vision and spatial planning framework for the district. It contains core strategic policies that provide for the development needs of the district.  

The adoption of the Core Strategy replaced a large number of policies set out with the Harborough District Local Plan.

The Core Strategy is now considered out of date in terms of policies relating to housing and economic development following the publication of the National Planning Policy Framework.

A new Local Plan is being prepared for adoption which will replace the policies and proposals in the Core Strategy.
