Please Respond to Consultation on the Bramcote Neighbourhood Plan

Paul Nathanail, Chair, Bramcote Neighbourhood Forum says: Bramcote residents and businesses in Branmcote should have received the consultation draft of the Bramcote Neighbourhood Plan.  It is also available on the Forum’s website

Thank you to those who contributed to our two meetings  to go through the consultation document.

And a huge thank to those of you who have already responded. As of today we have had over 100 responses – which is great, but the more opinions we have the better and stronger the plan we pass on to Broxtowe will be.

Please tells what you think of the draft plan’s proposed planning policies by visiting:

We would encourage you to read and comment on them all. But if time precludes this, then please focus on the policies on Housing and Green Belt, Local Green Space and Transport.

Please pass this on to friends and neighbours and encourage them if they are not yet a member of Bramcote Neighbourhood Forum, to consider joining at

    The report states the following:
    The Trust are seeking to achieve a significant capital receipt predominantly through the re- development of plots 1, 2 & 4 for housing to contribute to the rebuild costs estimated in the region of £20 million.
    Does this mean that we will see the track and surrounding fields opposite Moor Lane developed for housing? This would be absolutely terrible. The report is not clear (does 2 mean 2 plus a.b and c) and I cannot see a reference to 2C which is the track. Can anyone clarify this?

  2. Cllr Martin Plackett Bramcote Ward BBC says:

    Julian plot 2c, the Moor Lane running track is currently in Greenbelt and in the Broxtowe Part 2 Consultation paper it is proposed that it will become protected Local Green Space offering the same protection as Greenbelt.

    • RichHartman says:

      Greenbelt (on the face of it) enjoys greater protection thanks to recognition in nation planning policies not just local plans. Protected local green space may be of local importance but is not of national importance.
      Remember the Thoresby Lane golf course was ‘protected’ by local policies. Then planning consent was granted for development on it. So it wasn’t ‘protected’ at all.
