Planning Policy

The Council sets out its planning policies and plans for future development in Local Plans which are prepared and implemented by our Planning Policy team.

Broxtowe Borough Council's Local Plan has been undertaken in two parts:

  • Part 1 of the Local Plan (the Aligned Core Strategy) is already established and sets the strategic vision, aims and objectives for the borough as a whole until 2028. The Aligned Core Strategy is currently being reviewed and this will result in the production of the Greater Nottingham Strategic Plan.
  • Part 2 of the Local Plan delivers the strategic aims and objectives as set out in the Core Strategy.

The Local Plan, part 1 and part 2, replaces the 2004 Local Plan which is now located in our Historical Planning Documents webpage.

Local Development Scheme

The timescale for the preparation of the Local Plan is set out in the Local Development Scheme (LDS).

Neighbourhood Plans

A number of local communities are preparing Neighbourhood Plans for specific areas within the borough which, once ‘made’, will sit alongside the Local Plan and will take precedence over non-strategic policies.

Measuring Progress

To measure progress towards achieving planning objectives set out in the Local Plan, completed development is monitored and reported in the Authority Monitoring Report (AMR). Land availability and supply is monitored and reported in the Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA).

Involving the Community

For all aspects of developing the plan, the Council has set out the way in which it will consult with residents and stakeholders in the Statement of Community Involvement (SCI).
