Background reports and evidence base

 

We are preparing a new local plan to provide an up-to-date strategy to deliver new homes, employment, commercial and community facilities in the area whilst protecting the historic and natural environment.

The new local plan, when adopted, will replace the current Mansfield District Local Plan 1998 and will remain in place until 2033. We ask for views of residents, business owners and stakeholders throughout the preparation of the local plan.

Local Plan Publication Draft

The council consulted on the pdf icon Mansfield District Local Plan - Publication Draft, 2018 [42Mb]. between 20 September and 01 November 2018 ahead of its submission to the Secretary of State for an Examination in Public. Please see the Mansfield District Local Plan - Publication Draft page for more details.

 

Local Plan Preferred Options

We consulted on the pdf icon Preferred Options Consultation Document 2013 - 2033 [25Mb] between 2 October 2017 and 10 November 2017. This set out a revised vision of how the council would like the district to look in 2033. The revised objectives help to deliver the vision and guide the selection of the preferred residential and employment sites to meet the districts housing and employment requirements for the plan period.

A pdf icon Summary document [1Mb] was prepared setting out the key highlights of the Preferred Options consultation document 2017.

This consultation was supported by the pdf icon Site Selection Technical Paper 2017 [20Mb] and the pdf icon Mansfield Sustainability Apprisal Interim SA Report August 2017 [1Mb] which took into account all reasonable alternatives relating to the sites, as well as the Preferred Sites set out within the Preferred Options consultation document. 

There were several documents out to consultation with this report that helped us to reach the Preferred Options:

pdf icon Interim Habitats Regulation Assessment 2017 [332kb]

pdf icon Employment Technical Paper 2017 [1Mb]

pdf icon Housing Technical Paper 2017 [4Mb]

Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (HELAA)

 

Local Plan Consultation Draft

The pdf icon Local Plan Consultation Draft [14Mb] report built on previous consultation exercises (see Previous work and next steps) and informs the final version of the local plan. It was available for public consultation between 11 January and 22 February 2016, and 3 August and 14 September 2016 under Regulation 18 of the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012. We have worked through all the responses that we received and produced a pdf icon Consultation Statement (Regulation 19), 2018 [13Mb], which is a summary of all the issues raised and the council's response. We have produced an pdf icon Interim Consultation Statement 2017 [4Mb] to accompany the Revised Preferred Options and Sites Consultation.

 

Local Plan Scoping Report

The pdf icon Local Plan Scoping Report [4Mb] set out what we thought the Local Plan should include. The pdf icon The Scoping Report - Statement of Consultation [1Mb] provides a summary of what you said and how we took your comments on board in the preparation of the Local Plan Consultation Draft.

 

Local Development Scheme

The pdf icon Mansfield District Local Development Scheme 2018 [806kb] sets out the programme for the preparation of the local plan and related documents. It includes information about what each document will cover. The new LDS was adopted on 23 May 2018 and will be kept as a live document, updated with more specific information as work progresses.

 

Previous work and next steps

Previous work on the local plan includes:

Following the consultation period on the Local Plan Publication Draft we will review all the comments before submitting the plan, and all comments to the Secretary of State. They will appoint an inspector to carry out an independent exmination of the proposed local plan.

After we receive the Inspector's report we will be able to adopt the Local Plan. That document will become the statutory planning document (development plan) for the district and be used to guide decisions on planning applications and support our proposals for investment and regeneration.

Background reports and evidence base
