Land and Planning Policies Development Plan Document (Local Plan Part 2) Revised Publication Version

Nottingham City Council is currently preparing the second part of its Local Plan which is out for consultation between Friday 29 September to Friday 10 November 2017. The Main Document is the Land and Planning Policies Document - Local Plan Part 2 (Revised Publication Version). To make a valid representation please complete a Revised Publication Response form for each of the proposed changes you wish to comment on using the guidance note to assist you . However you are advised to read the information below before making any representation.

Local Plan Part 2

This document is called the Land and Planning Policies Document (LAPP) and contains both Development Management planning policies and site specific land allocations. It will help provide a level of certainty about which areas will be developed or protected in the future and for what purpose. It will form part 2 of the new Local Plan along with the adopted Core Strategy which is part 1 of the Local Plan.

The ‘Revised Publication Version’ follows on from the previous consultation stages including the 'Publication Version', 'Preferred Option', 'Additional Sites Consultation' 'Issues and Options stage' and 'Call for Sites'. The Publication Version was the version of the plan which the Council intended to submit to the Secretary of State. However due to a number of changes that the Council wishes to make prior to submission, a Revised Publication document has been published. 

These proposed changes for Revised Publication were approved by a Leader’s Key Decision on 7 September 2017 to the Publication Version of the LAPP for a period of public consultation. The “Revised Publication Version” consultation period will run for six weeks between Friday 29th September to Friday 10th November, following which it is intended to submit the LAPP and all the representations received at both Publication Version and Revised Publication Version stages for Public Examination.

Detailed below are the documents that are published alongside the Revised Publication version.   Some of the documents are quite large and may take time to download subject to internet speeds.  If you have any problems viewing any document, please do get in touch (contact details below).

Main Document

Land and Planning Policies Document - Local Plan Part 2 - (Revised Publication Version) - This is the main document and sets out proposed planning policies to guide planning decisions and also proposes land allocations for development.

Policies Map – will accompany the LAPP to show the boundaries of the site allocations and policy designations referred to in the LAPP. The map is split up into;

Some changes have been proposed to the Policies Map and these are shown in the Schedule of Changes to the Nottingham City Land and Planning Policies Development Plan Document (Local Plan Part 2), Publication Version, September 2017.

An interactive online policies map is also available.  This groups together similar layers which can be viewed together such as "Transport" or "Historic Environment" and it is possible to turn any of the layers on or off.  This interactive map replicates the paper version of the LAPP Publication Version Policies Map along with additional amended layers which together make up the Revised Publication Version Policies Map. Where layers have been altered both the Publication and Revised Publication Versions (shaded in pink) are shown to allow comparison. The map is designed to assist the LAPP Revised Publication consultation process, but any formal consultation responses should be made against the proposed changes shown in the Schedule of Changes to the Nottingham City Land and Planning Policies Development Plan Document (Local Plan Part 2), Publication Version, September 2017.

How the Plan will be Assessed

Legally Compliant

A plan is considered legally compliant when it complies with the various regulations that govern how it should be prepared. Key issues the Inspector will look at include

  • Whether it is in the Local Development Scheme
  • Whether community consultation was carried out in accordance with the Statement of Community Involvement
  • Whether the requirements of the relevant Regulations have been followed
  • Whether the appropriate notifications have been made
  • Whether a Sustainability Appraisal assessing social, environmental and economic factors has been completed and made public
  • Whether the document has regard to the Sustainable Community Strategy for the areas it covers
  • Whether the requirements of the Duty to Cooperate have been met

Soundness

When testing the soundness of the Local Plan Part 2 the Inspector will consider a number of different factors. These are whether the Local Plan Part 2 is 'positively prepared', 'justified', 'effective' and 'consistent with national policy' and are known as the 'tests of soundness'.

Positively Prepared

This means that the Plan has objectively assessed the need for homes, jobs, services and infrastructure and these will be delivered where sustainable.

Justified

This means that the Plan is based upon a robust and credible evidence base and supports the choices made in the document.

Effective

This means that the Plan will deliver what it sets out to do, will actually happen and the required infrastructure can be provided.  The various landowners and stakeholders who will deliver elements of the Plan have also signed up to it and the Plan joins up with the strategies of neighbouring authorities.

Consistent with National Policy

This means that the Plan accords with the National Planning Policy Framework or provides clear and convincing reasons for doing something different.
