Delays in planning services

We are experiencing high numbers of planning applications and requests for pre-application advice and currently have limited staffing resources. We apologise for any delays in responses to emails and calls. Find out more, including what measures we have in place to overcome these challenges.

Design standards

We help guide design and development in Leicester. We work to ensure schemes are high-quality, and encourage applicants to seek design advice early.

What do we provide advice on?

  • The value of good design
  • Reference to design policies and the need for high quality design.
  • Adding value to the design process and principle considerations when designing your proposals.
  • 'Building for life'
  • Design review
  • Design and access statement.
