Recent consultations and adoptions

The consultation period for the draft Local Plan document (January 2022) has now ended (27 February until 4 April 2022). 

Nottinghamshire County Council and Nottingham City Council are working together to prepare a new Waste Local Plan which will replace the previous Adopted Waste Local Plan (2002) and the Waste Core Strategy (2013). The new Waste Local Plan will provide the future planning strategy for waste management in Nottinghamshire and Nottingham until 2038 and will aim to provide sufficient capacity to meet future needs. It will also provide key policies against which future waste development will be assessed.

S106 Estimator 

The latest AMR 2020 was published recently and covers the period 1 April 2019 to 31 March 2020.

Given the demand for student accommodation including on street traditional housing and Purpose Built Student Accommodation (PBSA) it is considered important to have the most up-to-date information available.  This is now available, please see the Updated Student Information and this replaces appendix 3-5 in the AMR 2020.

As student data is out of sync with the other AMR data (based instead on the academic year September to September), additional data related to Student Concentration Map (Appendix 3), Student bedspaces completed and projected for Academic Year 2018/19 (Appendix 4) and details of future student accommodation (Appendix 5) have only now been able to be finalised.

In line with recent changes to Government legislation, local authorities are required to produce an annual Infrastructure Funding Statement (IFS).

The IFS provides information on developer contributions, which are used to provide infrastructure to support development within the City to help mitigate development impacts.

Developer contributions is a collective term used to refer to planning obligations, which are used to secure financial and non-financial contributions (known as Section 106 or S106 agreements).

The IFS includes information on the contributions required and received, and how financial payments have been used.

An IFS will be produced at the end of each calendar year to report on the previous financial year. The 2021 infrastructure funding statement covers the period 1 April 2020 to 31 March 2021.

Further details are available on the Infrastructure Funding Statement page
