Market Bosworth Neighbourhood Plan
The Market Bosworth Neighbourhood Plan has been produced by the Neighbourhood Forum which is made up of Market Bosworth Parish Council members and representatives from the local community. The Neighbourhood Plan contains a vision of the future of Market Bosworth, objectives, aspirations and a set of planning policies.
The Market Bosworth Neighbourhood Plan was adopted at referendum in September 2015.

The Neighbourhood Forum has also prepared a Design Brief and a Tree & Hedgerow Survey to accompany the Neighbourhood Plan. The Design Brief provides additional guidance as to the type of development to be permitted on the site allocated for development south of Heath Road / Station Road. The Tree & Hedgerow Survey identifies local trees and hedgerows of intrinsic value to the character of Market Bosworth.
The Neighbourhood Plan identifies various aspirational projects for the parish: a town centre traffic scheme; construction of a safe footpath to the Water Park; adoption of a Local Heritage Asset List; a review of Tree Preservation Orders; a hedgerow review; creation of improved access to the countryside; and improved mobile phone and broadband reception.
Aspirational projects completed are: works to construct a footway to the Water Park; introduction of new waiting restrictions on Barton Road, Sutton Lane and Station Road outside the Community Library; extension of superfast broadband to many more properties within the parish; and completion of a detailed Tree and Hedgerow Survey.
Meanwhile, a draft Local Heritage Asset List has been submitted to the Borough Council for consideration and works have commenced in co-operation with Leicestershire County Council Highways in respect of the town centre redevelopment project.
