The Broxtowe Local Plan, adopted in September 2004, is the main reference document for forward planning in the Borough. It shows all the land allocated for development to cover requirements up to 2011. It includes current planning policies against which new development proposals are judged. In 2007 policies in the Local Plan were scrutinised to select those which should be "saved" under a legal process required for all local plans to ensure that they are kept up-to-date. The policies that were saved are confirmed in a Saved Policies List.

The National Planning Policy Framework sets out the Government's planning policies for England and how these are expected to be applied. It sets out the Government's requirements for the planning system only to the extent that it is relevant, proportionate and necessary to do so. It provides a framework within which local people and their accountable councils can produce their own distinctive local and neighbourhood plans, which reflect the needs and priorities of their communities. Planning law requires that applications for planning permission must be determined in accordance with the development plan, unless material considerations indicate otherwise. The National Planning Policy Framework must be taken into account in the preparation of local and neighbourhood plans, and is a material consideration in planning decisions. Planning policies and decisions must reflect and where appropriate promote relevant EU obligations and statutory requirements. This Framework does not contain specific policies for nationally significant infrastructure projects for which particular considerations apply. These are determined in accordance with the decision-making framework set out in the Planning Act 2008 and relevant national policy statements for major infrastructure, as well as any other matters that are considered both important and relevant (which may include the National Planning Policy Framework). National policy statements form part of the overall framework of national planning policy, and are a material consideration in decisions on planning applications. The Planning Policy for Travellers Sites document sets out the Government's planning policy for traveller sites. It should be read in conjunction with the National Planning Policy Framework. Planning Policy for Traveller Sites: http://www.communities.gov.uk/documents/planningandbuilding/pdf/2113371.pdf Planning law requires that applications for planning permission must be determined in accordance with the development plan, unless material considerations indicate otherwise. This policy must be taken into account in the preparation of development plans, and is a material consideration in planning decisions. Local planning authorities preparing plans for and taking decisions on traveller sites should also have regard to the policies in the National Planning Policy Framework so far as relevant.
The study is required to model the proposed impacts of Greater Nottingham's draft spatial strategy on the current and planned road network across Greater Nottingham over the plan period to 2026. With the proposed revocation of the Regional Spatial Strategy, the work on modelling traffic flows around Greater Nottingham is ongoing.
Notice of immediate revocation of Regional Strategies.
This report sets out the results of a major study which investigated the range of potentially suitable sites for large scale rail connected strategic distribution sites in the Three Cities Sub-area comprising Derby, Leicester and Nottingham and their surrounding areas. This was achieved by: Identifying a long list of potential sites. Developing and applying a robust methodology to allow the ranking of sites. Recommending a short list of potential sites. The Study was commissioned by the East Midlands Development agency on behalf of a partnership of local authorities, the Highways Agency and Network Rail. It was undertaken to support and inform regional and local policy to bring forward sites at the most sustainable locations to serve this important business sector.
This study provides strategic level advice on water infrastructure and environmental capacity and should be included as part of evidence base for the Councils' Local Development Frameworks. The study identifies that the water resource situation in the East Midlands is significantly constrained and reinforces the importance of managing the demand for water. A planned programme of measures to improve water supply means that growth should not be constrained. It suggests that consumption could be reduced both by Councils having policies that support the water company's efficiency measures and by building new housing to water consumption standards of the Code for Sustainable Homes Level 3/4. New housing development should occur in the lowest flood risk zones (the study does not take into account non-residential development); in all cases, development options should favour sites in Flood Zone 1. In addition, the effect of climate change should also be taken into consideration, which is likely to increase the extent of the flood zones. Surface water flooding should also be a material planning consideration. New developments should apply sustainable drainage techniques to control flood risk, whilst also providing benefit in terms of water quality, amenity value and green infrastructure targets. The need for a further Detailed Study is identified which should examine wastewater treatment and/or river / catchment water quality modelling in more detail.
The report provides the local planning authorities with a technical evidence base to consider future options for housing allocations in the areas that lie outside the Nottingham Principal Urban Area (PUA). The study takes into account a variety of factors including environmental, economic, infrastructure, transport and landscape. The report sets out the results for each of the 34 assessment areas, and provides a brief overview of the potential growth, and of the constraints to growth for each area.
This work is part of an evidence base to inform the Greater Nottingham authorities about suitable settlements in terms of access to services.
The Shaping places through sport series of five documents details how local authorities and their partners can use sport to build stronger, healthier, sustainable and more prosperous communities. The reports are intended to help local policymakers and practitioners put sport at the heart of their broad range of work in local areas. Objectives: To build communities by developing strong, sustainable and cohesive communities through sport. To create safer communities by reducing anti-social behaviour and the fear of crime through sport. To create healthier communities by improving health and reducing health inequalities through sport. To increase prosperity by increasing skills, employment and economic prosperity through sport. To transform lives by improving the life chances and focusing the energies of children and young people through sport.
Part 4 of the Local Democracy, Economic Development and Construction Bill (clauses 63 and 64) places a new duty on county councils and unitary authorities to assess the economic conditions of their area. The Local Democracy, Economic Development and Construction Bill includes an impact assessment of the proposed new local authority economic assessment duty. Communities and Local Government has also carried out an assessment of the potential costs the new duty would place on local authorities. The Government intends to fund any net costs identified through this assessment.
The Trent River Park is the name given to a broadly defined area along the River Trent, within and adjacent to the Nottingham City conurbation.Trent River Park extends from Trent Lock in the west to Gunthorpe in theeast, a distance of 21 kilometres. This Vision and Action Plan for the Trent River has been developed to co-ordinate the organisations currently undertaking work within the park boundaries and to bring forward a series of key projects to promote and enhance the Trent River Park.
The Act puts plans in place for the creation of an independent Infrastructure Planning Commission. The Commission will be responsible for making decisions on major infrastructure of national significance. The Commissions decisions will be guided by National Policy Statements. The Act also brings in the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL). The CIL will allow local authorities to charge developers for infrastructure. Changes to existing local planning policy mean that Regional Spatial Strategies and Development Plan Documents will need to contribute to climate change policy.
These assessments are the result of a comprehensive process which examines sites to establish their suitability, availability and achievability. This document contains details of the analysis of each site in the Nottingham Core SHLAA in Nottingham City.

This report represents the final assessment in the supplementary work (Assessment of Sustainable Urban Extensions) for the Nottingham Core Housing Market's Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA). It accepts that it is not possible for the amount of new housing required by the RSS to be built on brownfield land and that a proportion will need to be built on greenfield land. It provides the local planning authorities with a technical evidence base to consider future options for housing allocations, and suggests the density of housing that sites could accommodate.
This ELR covers the whole of the Northern Sub-Region including the four Local Authorities in North Nottinghamshire (Ashfield, Bassetlaw, Mansfield and Newark & Sherwood) as well as three Local Authorities in North Derbyshire (Bolsover, Chesterfield and NE Derbyshire). It reviews the appropriate local planning policy and regeneration strategies, assesses the commercial property market, and analyses employment land demand and supply across the area, in both quantitative and qualitative terms.
'Hidden infrastructure' is the evidence that supports the Environment Agency's policy paper (Environment Agency Policy Brief - Environmental Infrastructure), which presents their new ideas to make sure growth in England and Wales is sustainable, and has the environmental services it needs.
This SPD sets out to guide the design of any future regeneration proposals within the White Hart area of Mansfield Town Centre. It aims to ensure that development:?? integrates with and enhances Mansfield town centre ?? respects, complements and enhances the historic character of the White Hart area ?? enhances linkages between the White Hart Area and surrounding areas ?? helps to maintain and enhance the vitality and viability of Mansfield Town Centre
The main purpose of the strategy is to develop a planned approach to the protection and enhancement of the overall nature conservation resource in the district.
Nottingham City Council's approach to student housing provision on sites allocated in the Local Plan and on unallocated 'windfall' sites. Objectives: Encourage the provision of purpose built and managed student accommodation in appropriate locations. Improve the physical quality of accommodation for students. Restrict the provision of further student housing (where the City Council is able to exercise control) within areas of recognised over-concentration of students, where the creation and maintenance of balanced communities is threatened.
The plan supports the principle of sustainable development and sets out how its' policies will meet the future land use needs of the Borough. Objectives: - Protect the built and natural environment, maintain and enhance biodiversity. - Ensure that access to shopping areas, employment areas and recreational activities are increasingly accessible by public transport to reduce the number of journeys undertaken by car. - Ensure that the housing stock meets the needs of residents, and protect and improve the residential amenity of existing and future residential areas. - Support and develop economic activity in both urban and rural locations
The goal of sustainable development is to enable all people throughout the world to satisfy their basic needs and enjoy a better quality of life, without compromising the quality of life of future generations. Objectives: Sustainable Consumption and Production to achieve more with less. This means addressing: - how goods and services are produced to reduce the inefficient use of resources; - the impacts of products and materials across their whole lifecycle; - building on people's awareness of social and environmental concerns. Reduce the impacts on climate change by reducing the amounts of greenhouse gasses released during energy production and other human activity. Ensure a decent environment for everyone by implementing environmental protection, enhancement and recovery. Create sustainable communities that embody the principles of sustainable development at the local level.

Ensure that all land with the possibility of causing significant harm in Mansfield is identified as 'contaminated land'. Identifies the priority to protect human health, controlled waters, eco-systems and property, to prevent further land contamination and to encourage voluntary remediation and re-use of brownfield land.
The County and City Councils have produced this Interim Transport Planning Statement (ITPS) in order to provide clarity and advice regarding the implementation of the policy on developer contributions towards integrated transport measures. The updated policy is required to bridge the gap between the Nottinghamshire Structure Plan Review (adopted November 1996) and the Local Transport Plans for Greater Nottingham and North Nottinghamshire (published July 2000). However, because it is an evolution of existing Structure Plan Policy, it has been produced as an ITPS rather than Supplementary Planning Guidance. As such, it puts into practice the guidance in the revised PPG12 'Development Plans' (December 1999), which advocates the use of ITPSs in advance of changes to the development plan, where such changes are required to provide an uptodate planning strategy for the local transport plan to take into account.
The Local Plan was written to guide development in Mansfield up to the year 2006. However, the plan has been 'saved' in line with the transitional arrangements of the new planning system. The overriding strategic objectives of the Local Plan fall into three categories which are: Economic Growth and Development - objectives are aimed at accommodating residential, industrial and commercial development and at encouraging enterprise, investment and creation of jobs. Quality of Life - objectives are aimed at ensuring provision for retailing, leisure and countryside recreation, to maintain and enhance accessibility, to protect residential amenity and to meet social and community needs. Conservation of Environmental Resources - objectives are aimed at protecting and enhancing the environment including listed buildings, archaeological sites, ancient monuments, designated sites of nature conservation value, the countryside, best agricultural land, natural habitats, the best features of the built environment.
