Awsworth Parish Council has produced a Neighbourhood Plan for Awsworth Parish. Following a Referendum held on 10 June 2021, Broxtowe Borough Council resolved to ‘make’ (adopt) the Awsworth Neighbourhood Plan on 21 July 2021. The Awsworth Neighbourhood Plan will therefore be used when making decisions on planning applications within the Parish of Awsworth, alongside Broxtowe Borough Council's Local Plan.



A Neighbourhood Plan referendum took place in relation to the Awsworth Neighbourhood Plan on Thursday 10 June 2021, asking the question: ‘Do you want Broxtowe Borough Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Awsworth to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?’. The number of votes cast in favour of ‘Yes’ was 401 and those in favour of ‘No’ was 57. The turnout was 27.26%.
