Information on the Council’s current and closed consultations.

Your views are important to us. Involving the public in our work through consultation is an integral part of our policy and decision-making process.

Why do we consult?

  1. It allows the Council and its strategic partners to tap the widest source of information possible and thus improve the quality of decisions reached.

  2. It alerts policy makers to any concerns and issues not picked up through existing evidence.

  3. It helps to monitor existing policy and whether changes are needed.

How we handle your personal data 

Except where otherwise stated, we will always withhold personal information such as addresses in line with the privacy policy of this website. Responses from people who have asked for confidentiality will not be published at all.

Proposed New Housing at Chilton Drive/Spring Close, Watnall - Pre-Planning Consultation

Broxtowe Borough Council adopted a Housing Delivery Plan in 2019. The plan identified land owned by the Council that could potentially be developed for affordable housing. This included several garage sites in Chilwell and Watnall.

The proposed demolition of the 10 garages to the rear of Butterfield Court (off Chilton Drive, Watnall) will allow the Council to build 2 new houses.  Any new homes built would be highly energy efficient dwellings using air source heat pumps and photovoltaic panels.  

The Council has undertaken a parking survey around the garages to assess the impact of the proposal on the existing on street parking and the current proposals are considered acceptable. 

If planning approval is secured, the Housing department will work with the garage tenants affected to try and find alternative garages to rent.  

As part of the pre planning consultation process the Council is seeking local residents views on this proposal by asking people to complete an online questionnaire at

Local residents have also been written to and given the opportunity to submit comments by post.

The closing date for completing the survey is Friday 4th February 2022.

Homelessness Strategy

The Council is currently consulting on a new strategy for the next five years.  

The South Nottinghamshire Homelessness Partnership (Broxtowe Borough Council, Gedling Borough Council and Rushcliffe Borough Council) have worked together to develop a draft Homelessness & Rough Sleeping Strategy.

The strategy aims to build on the priorities and progress made in the preceding strategy and enable us to respond to the new and emerging challenges that we face in tackling homelessness in South Nottinghamshire.

In accordance with the Homelessness Act 2002, all local authorities must have in place a Homelessness Strategy based on a review of all forms of homelessness in their district and demonstrating how homelessness will be prevented and resolved.  The Strategy must be renewed at least every 5 years. 

We would welcome your views on the strategy and the priorities it outlines.  You can share your comments and suggestions by filling in the survey (Opens in a New Window).

If you have any questions about the consultation or need the documents in a different format, please email or contact Richard Smith on 0115 917 3045.

Following consultation, a full report on the findings and outcomes of the consultation will be presented to the Cabinet or Committees of the participant Councils to ensure the Strategy is in place and agreed by the start of 2022.
