Examination of the LAPP (Local Plan Part 2)

Nottingham City Council is reviewing its Local Plan.  The Aligned Core Strategy was adopted in 2014 and forms the Part 1 of the Local Plan.  The Land and Planning Policies Document (LAPP) will form the Part 2 Local Plan.  The production of this document which has been subject to two formal rounds of consultation has now reached an advanced stage and was submitted for Examination on 23 April 2018. 

The Inspector has issued a letter (LAPP. INSP 19 15.1.19 Main Modifications Note Jan 2019) following on from the close of the Examination last year.  This sets out recommended modifications that in the Inspector's view are required to ensure that the Plan is sound and legally compliant.

Once the Inspector is satisfied with the schedule of potential main modifications, it, the policy map changes, and the updated Sustainability Appraisal and Habitats Regs Assessment will be subject to a six week period of public consultation. This is currently planned timetabled for May to June 2019.  This consultation will be about the proposed main modifications, changes to the policies map and updated SA/HRA not about other aspects of the Plan or “omission sites”. The Council will then report the main issues raised during the Consultation and the Councils response to these to the Inspector in July. The Inspector’s report is late Summer 2019.
