The Borough Council is now preparing the second part of its Local Plan (Local Plan Part 2). It will include further policies and proposals for housing, Green Belt, employment, retail, open spaces and nature conservation.
The first part of the Local Plan, which was approved in 2014, requires that a minimum of 250 new homes are built on greenfield sites on the edge of Ruddington. The consultation is, along with some other issues, to get your views on where these new homes might be built.
The consultation event at the St Peter’s Rooms is open to all. Come along any time between 3pm and 8pm. More information can be found at: www.rushcliffe.gov.uk/planningpolicy
Parish Council statement
on Part 2 of Core Strategy
Ruddington Parish Council is assisting Rushcliffe Borough Council by promoting the consultation over possible housing sites in the Green Belt for Part 2 of the Core Strategy. RPC has not had any input into which sites will be included in the consultation and does not know what they are.
Parish Council Chairman, Councillor Allen Wood, said “RPC has not discussed or decided on any submission to make to RBC as part of the consultation. Indeed, there has not even been a decision to make a submission! We will wait until after the consultation event on 11th February before considering what decisions need to be made and how best to make them.”
