Broxtowe Borough Council Adopts Core Strategy
Following a public examination by an independent Planning Inspector, Broxtowe Borough Council resolved to adopt the Aligned Core Strategy at its Full Council meeting last night during a recorded vote.
The inspector to the Aligned Core Strategies, Jill Kingaby, issued her final report in July and found the Councils’ plans to be sound subject to the modifications discussed and put forward following the examination hearings and consulted on during March and April 2014 (with one exception in respect of Bestwood village in Gedling Borough).
The Full Council has now considered the recommendations of the inspector and resolved to formally adopt the plan.
In respect of Broxtowe the Inspector has fully endorsed the Council’s approach to the strategic planning for the Borough including supporting development allocations at Boots and Field Farm, Stapleford. She has also supported the Toton area as a strategic location for growth and endorsed the housing numbers and distribution for the remaining parts of the Borough.
By law Broxtowe Borough Council must have an up-to-date Local Plan. The Core Strategy forms the first part of the Local Plan in Broxtowe and its adoption is the final step of putting the Core Strategy in place.
The decision to adopt the Core Strategy means that the document is now the basis for all planning decisions taken in the Borough.
