The City Council would like to work with the local community to create a new development in the heart of the Stocking Farm area which may provide new homes, retail and community facilities to serve the local area.

Before we put our ideas down on paper and create a masterplan, we would like to hear your thoughts about the community and shopping facilities you would like to see.

At the same time the Council is bringing forward ambitious plans across the City to develop 1,500 Council Homes by 2023.

City mayor Sir Peter Soulsby said:

“Many parts of Leicester, including Stocking Farm, were shaped by the Council in the 20th Century. It is now time to revisit these sites and ensure they are fit for purpose in the 21st Century.

Work is very much at an early stage, but we would like to engage with the local community to explore opportunities and shape a vision that will bring unused land and property back into use, improve life for local residents and help kickstart the regeneration of this important part of the city”.

Plans to develop a shared vision for the regeneration of Leicester’s Stocking Farm Neighbourhood Centre have been announced.

As part of the masterplanning work, the Council will explore options for bringing Stocking Farmhouse itself back into use. The Council-owned, locally-listed building dates back to the late 19th century and is currently vacant.

Coming Soon - Community Shop

An early phase of the regeneration of the Stocking Farm Neighbourhood Centre will potentially be an exciting new purpose for the underused Youth Centre building.

An independent organisation called
Community Shop has made a proposal to the Council and intend to submit a planning application in the coming weeks.

If approved, their new Stocking Farm Community Shop would provide a community hub consisting of a membership shop providing the opportunity to buy food at discounted prices for those meeting their eligibility criteria.

A community café may also be available to everyone in the local community along with a range of other community space which they will use to provide mentoring and training support to their members. This space will also be available for hire for other local community groups.

You will have an opportunity to comment on this planning application separately - please keep a look out for the local adverts.
