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 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
A Strategic Flood Risk Assessment (SFRA) is a planning tool which helps local authorities steer new developments away from high flood risk areas. This is the Non-Technical Report for the Greater Nottingham SFRA and comprises a summary of key findings. A Technical Report is also available.

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.
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 Local Development Scheme (LDS) is the project plan for the Local Plan. It sets out the timetable of when Local Development Plan Documents will be prepared. The City Council keep the programme set out in the LDS under review and reports progress in the Authority Monitoring Report.
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.
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 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.

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 the east, 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.
