Plan For For Future Of Mansfield Close

11th January 2019
News, Mansfield

Mansfield's blueprint for development in the district until 2033 has taken a step closer to being adopted.

The Mansfield District Local Plan has now been submitted to the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government for examination.

Planning Inspector Sarah Housden has been appointed to undertake an independent examination into the soundness of the Plan, taking into account representations submitted earlier in the process of drafting it.

During this stage of the Local Plan process, there will be a number of informal debates, open to the public, on principal matters identified by the Inspector. Details of when and where these will be held will be decided by the Inspector and advertised when they are known. 

At the end of the Examination stage, the Inspector will report back to the Mansfield District Council with recommendations. It is hoped the plan will be formally adopted by the council later this year

The Plan will earmark the distribution and allocation of land for residential, employment and retail development and the protection of green and open spaces in the district between now and 2033. It will be used to determine policies for planning applications and decision making and includes provision for about 6,500 new homes



Cllr Bill Drewett, Portfolio Holder for Safer Communities, whose responsibilities include the Local Plan, said: "This is an important policy document to guide future development and we are pleased that it is making progress. We look forward to receiving any recommendations the Inspector may decide to make."
