To enable us to undertake consultations on the Local Plan and related documents we are setting up a joint consultation database with other Greater Nottingham councils (Broxtowe, Erewash, Gedling and Rushcliffe) to review the Aligned Core Strategy (Part 1 of the Local Plan).
Further information including the necessary details you need to provide are available on the Greater Nottingham Consultation Database page.
The Aligned Core Strategies - Local Plan Part 1 is at the early stages of review. The Land and Planning Policies Document - Local Plan Part 2 was adopted by the Council on 13th January 2020 (see committee papers) following receipt of the Inspector's report. Archive information about the examination of the LAPP can be found on the Examination Web pages.
