Authority Monitoring Report 2019 - Additional Student Information
The latest 2019 AMR was published recently and covers the period 1 April 2018 to 31 March 2019.
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.
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.
A replacement student concentration map (appendix 3) and tables for appendix 4 and 5 are provided. The three appendices in the current AMR are therefore superseded by the tables in this document.

Nottinghamshire and Nottingham Waste Local Plan Issues and Options Consultation
An Issues and Option of the Nottinghamshire and Nottingham Waste Local Plan was consulted on from 27 February to 7 May 2020. Consultation comments are now being considered by both of the Councils.
Nottingham City and Nottinghamshire County Council as Waste Planning Authorities have a legal duty to maintain an up-to-date Waste Local Plan, which provides planning guidelines that will help shape future waste development and provide the basis for decisions on waste related planning applications.
Work has started on a new Waste Plan, which is to be prepared jointly by Nottingham City Council and Nottinghamshire County Council. This will ensure that we can plan for sufficient sites to meet future demand for waste and resource recovery over the next 15-20 years, a period which will see serious housing and economic growth across the plan area. We are inviting people to consider what kind of guidelines should be in the next version of the Plan, ensuring that all issues are taken into account and that all options for waste management have been considered.
Once adopted, the document will provide a range of policies aimed at supporting sustainable waste management, helping us to meet our objectives on climate change and minimising carbon emissions. The Plan will then be used to determine planning applications for waste development.
This consultation was also accompanied by a ‘Call for Sites’ to give an opportunity for agents, landowners and developers to submit land which they believe could be developed to meet future demand for waste management facilities. This will help to ensure that there is sufficient land available to meet our waste needs during the Plan period.

SPDs are capable of being a material consideration in planning decisions but are not part of the statutory development plan.
