Travel Planning Guidance for Developers

  • Workplace Travel Plan - Travel planning help for local developers wishing to expand or build new workplaces
  • School travel plans - In the case of the schools wishing to expand, relocate or those who are part of Building Schools for the Future, it will usually be a condition for planning permission that the school has a travel plan

Highway Development Control

Planning Applications

Highway Development Control ensures that new developments do not have a negative impact on Nottingham City's highway network.
 
The Local Planning Authority (LPA) has the power to refuse or accept development proposals. It is the Highway Authority's role to assess whether a development will have an impact on traffic and road safety.
 
When considering a planning application or development proposal, there are three options available to the Highway Authority:
  • Offering no objections to proposals,
  • Request planning conditions to be put in place
  • Request refusal of the planning application

Statutory Agreements

Approved planning applications are subject to conditions and legal agreements.
This can include:
  • The agreement to contribute to local facilities,
  • An agreement between the developer and the council for any works to be conducted on the Highway
  • Or agreement to cover the cost of developments whereby a new highway is to be created
We advise developers to discuss these issues with the Council's Highway Development Control at an early stage. This avoids delays at the formal planning stage.

For further information please contact Highways Development Control on 0115 876 5231.
