Rushcliffe Borough Council voted at a Full Council meeting this evening ( 26th April ) to pass Local Plan Part 2 proposals that identify non-strategic housing allocations and designations in the Borough.
The plan will outline more detailed policies for use in the determination of planning applications as Rushcliffe is required by the Government to build 13,150 homes by 2028.
Rushcliffe Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing and Planning Cllr Roger Upton said: “This is a lengthy process to ensure all views and opinions are considered and taken into account. Tonight’s meeting was the next stage in the process but not the final opportunity for comments.
“There will now be a six week consultation period of publication of the final draft before we submit to the Secretary of State for examination by an Inspector in the summer.
“Then in the autumn we anticipate an examination hearing and this will be an opportunity for all interested parties to be involved and present individual concerns for consideration.
“Following examination the Council will consider any required modifications and if the Inspector then determines the plan is sound and legally compliant, it could be adopted at the end of the year.”
