Documents for both villages were adopted by Charnwood Borough Council as Supplementary Planning Documents [SPDs] from 15 May 06. They help to see that new extensions and buildings fit in with the local area in terms of materials, size, etc. Both documents were produced by local people and won design awards when they were published.
The 3rd Housing Needs Survey in the parish was in 2014, undertaken by Richard Mugglestone for Charnwood Borough Council. The results identify the kind of housing that local people would like and can affect future planning applications.
