What is the Strategic Growth Plan?

The Strategic Growth Plan is the overarching plan which will set out the aspirations for delivering growth (housing, economic, infrastructure) in Leicester and Leicestershire until 2050.

Leicester and Leicestershire boasts a young, diverse, multicultural City; thriving market towns and popular villages set in an attractive landscape; three strong universities; and a central location with good connectivity. Also, there are genuine opportunities for economic growth in the area, including those in sectors such as design, manufacturing, distribution, export based businesses, innovation and technology, research and enterprise.

How best to realise these opportunities for growth while keeping Leicester and Leicestershire an attractive place to live and work for all, can only be done if we plan ahead and work together to achieve this. This is why the nine local authorities in Leicester and Leicestershire and the Leicester & Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership (LLEP) are preparing this Plan.
