The Adopted Local Plan

In Nottingham the Local Plan comprises the Nottingham City Aligned Core Strategy (Part 1 Local Plan), which was adopted on 8 September 2014, and the 'Saved' Local Plan policies, which were adopted in November 2005. Many policies in the 'Saved' Local Plan have been deleted and replaced by policies in the Aligned Core Strategy (ACS).  There is also an adopted Waste Core Strategy (2013) written by Nottinghamshire and Nottingham.

Nottingham City Aligned Core Strategy (September 2014)

The Nottingham City ACS sets out strategic planning policies and development principles for Nottingham City to guide development until 2028.  The ACS was jointly prepared with Broxtowe and Gedling Borough Councils with close alignment to the Core Strategies of the other Councils that which make up Greater Nottingham, namely Erewash and Rushcliffe Borough Councils.

The Nottingham Local Plan (adopted November 2005) is a Statutory Local Plan for the City of Nottingham and provides the basis for decisions related to land use planning along with the Aligned Core Strategy.

The 'Saved' Local Plan policies contain detailed planning policies against which all planning applications are judged. It is accompanied by an adopted Proposals Map, which sets out areas of protection and areas of land designated for particular land uses. The Plan and related documents are listed below:

The Nottingham Local Plan - Addendum

Since the publication of the Nottingham Local Plan (2005) it has been identified that there was an error on the Proposals Map South Sheet. The boundary of the Sneinton Conservation Area as shown on the Proposals Map South Sheet is incorrect. The true boundary of the Sneinton Conservation Area is as shown on this addendum, which should be read in conjunction with the Nottingham Local Plan (2005).
