People urged to get involved in major consultation

Get involved and help shape the services you receive

Have your say strategic plan

A brand new consultation has launched enabling people to give their views on a major blueprint for council services.

From tackling climate change to conserving our heritage and keeping people safe, Leicestershire County Council is encouraging residents to have their say on its aims for the next four years.

Creating jobs, celebrating diverse communities, improving transport and supporting children to thrive, and more, are also set out in the authority’s refreshed ‘strategic plan’.

The consultation is open until 21 January and can be found here.


This is a an important document guiding how we deliver services for residents. And it builds on what residents, businesses and others told us two years ago when over 4,300 had their say on our future priorities.

Not only do we want to build a green, safe, resilient and prosperous Leicestershire, this is also about us being innovative, embracing digital technology and delivering value for money.

Your views on our strategic plan – and other key proposals – will help shape the future of our county. We’d like to know whether we’ve included what’s important to you and your community and I’d urge you to get involved.

Councillor Pam Posnett, cabinet member for communities

With Leicestershire’s population set to grow by around 20 per cent in 20 years, the council is planning for the future to make sure front-line services which support vulnerable people are protected. The draft strategic plan focuses on:

  • Building a clean, green future – where nature flourishes and our economy is low carbon
  • Keeping people safe and well – with support to live fulfilling lives
  • Supporting diverse and resilient communities – where local heritage is enjoyed and conserved
  • Creating a strong economy - with the right homes and infrastructure in the right place
  • Giving every child the best start in life – with access to good education



You have until 21 January to have your say
