LAPP (Local Plan Part 2) Submission Version

Nottingham City Council is preparing the second part of its Local Plan which has now been submitted to the Government to start the Examination.  Full details about the examination can be found by clicking the button below.

 

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 which is the overarching, strategic document.

This page is for archive purposes.  All information regarding the Examination can be found Examination pages.

The ‘Submission Version’ follows on from the previous stages of the Local Plan preparation including; the ‘Revised Publication Version’, 'Publication Version', 'Preferred Option', 'Additional Sites Consultation' 'Issues and Options stage' and 'Call for Sites'. A number of changes were proposed to be made by the Council to the Revised Publication Version of the plan prior to submission. The Submission Version is the document submitted to be examined by an Independent Inspector.

No consultation will take place on the proposed changes as contained in the Submission Version at this stage. Rather, these changes, along with any other main modifications the Inspector may wish to make through the examination process, will be consulted upon prior to final adoption of the plan. 

Detailed below are the documents published alongside the Submission 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).

Land and Planning Policies Document - Local Plan Part 2 (Submission Version)

This is the main document and sets out proposed planning policies to guide planning decisions and also proposes land allocations for development. It shows the proposed changes as tracked changes to the original Revised Publication Version, September 2017 with additions in blue underline and deletions in strikethrough.

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

The above maps are the Revised Publication version.  Some changes have been proposed to this 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) Submission Version, March 2018.

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 Revised Publication Version Policies Map along with additional amended layers which together make up the Submission Version Policies Map. Where layers have been altered both the Submission Publication and Revised Publication Versions (shaded in pink) are shown to allow comparison.

Listed below are the core documents.

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.
