Nottingham City Council consulted on the Draft Eastside Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) in accordance with the Town and Country Planning (Local Development) (England) Regulations 2012. The consultation closed on Friday 3 December (5pm) 2021.
The SPD sets out a vision and development framework (in line with Local Plan policies) for the future development of the Eastside area. It aims to promote a balance of development across the area and in particular, it seeks to promote the following principles:
- An appropriate balance in the type of housing in the Eastside Area;
- A good balance in the type of development in the Eastside Area to support the local area, adjacent communities and Creative Quarter objectives;
- Ensuring that all new development achieves a high standard of environmental sustainability;
- Improvements to the environment of the Eastside Area, and adjacent areas, including open space and public realm enhancements and the protection and enhancement of heritage assets;
- Ensuring safer connections into the Area, to surrounding communities and within the Eastside Area;
- Development in line with the 20-minute neighbourhood principles, where people can meet their everyday needs within a short walk or cycle.
Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs) provide further detail and explanation to support policies in the Nottingham City Local Plan (2020). SPDs are a material consideration in making decisions on planning applications.
