The future of four of Ruddington’s Green Belt sites will be discussed in Public Hearing Sessions starting from Tuesday 27th November at 9:30am. These will be led by the Planning Inspector appointed by the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government.
Expected to last around three weeks, the hearings will examine the details of the Rushcliffe Local Plan Part 2 to ascertain whether Green Belt sites earmarked for development are suitable. The Inspector has drawn up a list of questions relevant to each site.
The critical date for Ruddington will be Tuesday 4th December when the three sites marked in blue will be discussed. Most of the hearing sessions will take place at Rushcliffe Arena, although site visits are also likely to take place.
If you were thinking of attending the hearings, you can only contribute your opinion if you’ve previously made a representation around making changes to the Local Plan, and have registered your wish to appear. However, anyone can go along to watch the proceedings.
