The first stage of preparing the new Greater Nottingham Strategic Plan is a Growth Options Consultation. Consultation seeking views from citizens, businesses, developers and other interested parties on how new growth should be best planned for in Nottingham up to 2038 was conducted between 6 July to 14 September 2020. The responses are currently being considered in advance of a Draft Strategic Plan being produced and further consultation being undertaken in 2021.
Erewash Borough Council has produced a separate Growth Options document and the Council's report states that the reason for this is the development pressures that Erewash faces, and the need to progress swiftly with plan making. The public consultation on proposals to develop housing on several sites in Erewash ran from Monday 27 January 2020 to Monday 20 July 2020. The public consultation is now closed and comments are being considered.
