Residents of the Melton borough are reminded they have until April 4 to have their say on the draft Melton Local Plan (Emerging Options).
This document includes policies and proposals to guide change, development and growth of the borough for the period up to 2036.
The plan sets out how many new homes are needed in different parts of the borough and how the development needs of businesses should be addressed.
It also identifies the infrastructure needs for the borough, including proposals for a bypass around Melton, sites where development might be located and identifies areas which are important to the landscape and setting of the town and villages and how important countryside, ecological and heritage features will be protected and enhanced.

After considering the responses a revised plan will be produced and further consultation will take place.
