Greater Nottingham Strategic Plan - Growth Options Consultation (July 2020)


What is this about?

Broxtowe Borough, Gedling Borough, Nottingham City and Rushcliffe Borough Councils are developing the Greater Nottingham Strategic Plan which sets out the policies to help guide future development up to 2038.

The Strategic Plan aims to:

  • Have the right number and types of new homes, which are built in the right places and meet the needs of our local population and diverse communities;
  • Create vibrant and viable city and town centres, which are sustainable and are places where people want to live and work; and
  • Provide the right conditions for economic development which generates new jobs and economic growth, and to enable strong, safe and healthier communities.

The Strategic Plan will also consider other planning issues such as climate change and how the plan can help achieve each council's ambition to become carbon neutral.

Once approved, the Strategic Plan, along with other planning policies, can be used to help decide planning applications.

The Growth Options document asks a series of questions on topics including housing growth, employment growth and economic development, climate change and carbon neutrality, city and town centres, the natural environment, urban design, the historic environment, safe and healthy communities, Green Belt and infrastructure provision.

The councils want your views on the Greater Nottingham Strategic Plan to help shape future planning for the area.

The consultation opens 6th July and ends on 14th September 2020.
