Description

Good Design for North West Leicestershire: Ten Years On

In 2008, North West Leicestershire District Council launched its first design initiative. In ten years and in partnership with house builders and Registered Social Landlords, we have significantly improved the design quality of new developments across the District. We were once a poorly performing local authority when it came to design quality – today we are recognised as one of the best.

We have demonstrated that by working together we can deliver on both quality and quantity:

- Our Local Plan was adopted in November 2017 and we now have a 7.15 years (5% buffer) or 6.25 years (20% buffer) housing land supply.

- We adopted our ‘Good Design for North West Leicestershire Supplementary Planning Document’ in April 2017. Across the District we have a range of developments that reflect our quality aspirations.

- In our last reporting period (2016/17), 731 new homes were built across our District.

The purpose of the event is to reaffirm the Council’s commitment to good design. We will be presenting awards to a number of Commended Developments and we will also present the ‘People’s Choice Award’ – a development selected by way of a public vote.

Speakers:

Councillor Richard Blunt, Leader of the Council, NWLDC

Louise Wyman, Head of Strategy, Homes England

Bev Smith, Chief Executive, NWLDC

Refreshments: tea, coffee, pastries and bacon rolls will be offered to delegates arriving at 9.30am with the presentations commencing at 10.00am sharp.

A light sandwich lunch will be offered to delegates after the presentations.
