About the Masterplan

Why Leicester needs a plan
The masterplan is needed to provide a clear focus for regeneration.

In the past, development in Leicester has lacked direction. The plan will help to co-ordinate future development so that the city grows in a planned and sustainable way.

This will help to improve the image and prosperity of the city, making it a better place for all who live and work here.

How the plan was formed
The masterplan is built on solid research. It was created by an experienced range of consultants led by Roger Tym & Partners.

Initial research identified Leicester’s strengths and weaknesses. It looked at how to deal with the city’s problems and build on its assets.

A draft plan was then proposed, and put forward for public consultation. The feedback was used to create the final version of the plan.

How it will be delivered
The masterplan will be delivered over the next ten to fifteen years. It will require an enormous amount of financial investment.

The Leicester Regeneration Company will drive the plan forward. The company will work to attract investors to the city by promoting development opportunities and offering assistance and advice.

The masterplan is backed by organisations that have the power to make big decisions. Leicester City Council, East Midlands Development Agency and English Partnerships (all of whom fund the LRC) will use their influence to help make the plan succeed.
