At the end of February the Branch sent its response on the Leicester Local Plan.

The Branch concentrated on a limited but key set of what it saw as central issues.  These revolved around the housing numbers but just as important the lack of a coherent climate change strategy across the Plan, and the main response was to Chapter 3 for Strategic Climate Change Policy.  There was a lack of a joined up approach around the location of development, planning, transport and climate change, especially carbon emissions which was a major concern.

The Branch would like to thank the tremendous efforts on this submission that were put in by Tony Stott, John Marriott and Gerald Kells, the Branch consultant.

A full copy of the response to the Leicester Local Plan is enclosed.
