Emerging Local Plan

Gedling Borough Council is preparing the Greater Nottingham Strategic Plan with Broxtowe Borough Council, Nottingham City Council and Rushcliffe Borough Council to help guide future development across their combined areas.  This Strategic Plan will form part 1 of Gedling Borough Council’s Local Plan and replace the Aligned Core Strategy adopted in 2014. 

The Councils held a joint consultation on Growth Options between 6 July – 14 September 2020. Since then we were made aware of a technical issue with a small number of comments sent by email which were blocked by security software and not received. The technical issue was resolved but in order to ensure that we received all comments on the Greater Nottingham Strategic Plan Growth Options document, we extended the consultation period for an additional 6 weeks from 10 February 2021 - 24 March 2021.

The Growth Options consultation asks a series of questions on topics including housing growth, employment growth and economic development, climate change and carbon neutrality, city and town centres, the natural environment, urban design, the historic environment, safe and healthy communities, Green Belt and infrastructure provision. Comments received will inform the preparation of the Greater Nottingham Strategic Plan, which once drafted will be subject to further consultation.
