Council leader to ask Council to defer decisions on Local PlanPublished Friday 8 December 2023
The Leader of Harborough District Council, Cllr Phil Knowles, will ask members to defer decisions relating to the new Local Plan.
The Leader of Harborough District Council, Cllr Phil Knowles, will ask members to defer decisions relating to the new Local Plan, including Leicester’s unmet housing need, at a meeting of Full Council on Monday 11 December.
Following a letter from Harborough MP Neil O’Brien to Cllr Knowles, in which he requests a delay due to changes coming into effect next week to the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF), the leader will ask Council that it defers its consideration of the Local Plan reports which are:
Item 12 Harborough Local Plan - Leicester and Leicestershire Statement of Common Ground, relating to housing and employment land needs
Item 13 Local Plan - The Issues and Options consultation
Item 14 Local Development Scheme Update
Item 15 The new Local Plan Resources.
A new meeting will be proposed for Monday 18 December 2023 at which the above reports can be considered, subject to Council agreeing the deferment.
