Notice of public consultation on Main Modifications

Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012

The Council is seeking comments on the Main Modifications to the Broxtowe Borough Part 2 Local Plan. The Main Modifications are those that the Inspector has identified as possibly being necessary in order for the Plan to be found ‘sound’. The Inspector’s final conclusions will be given in her Report in due course.

Consultation on the Main Modifications and the associated Sustainability Appraisal of the Main Modifications will run from Friday 24th May 2019 until 5pm on Tuesday 9th July 2019. Comments must be received within this time,representations received after this date and time will not be accepted.

At this stage representations are only being sought on whether the Main Modifications to the Plan are sound and/or legally compliant.

If a response was made to the previous Part 2 Local Plan consultations, there is no need to resubmit them during this representation period as the Inspector has already considered these representations during the course of the Examination.

Representations are invited on the following documents:

  • Schedule of Main Modifications;
  • Main Modifications Sustainability Appraisal and Habitats Regulation Assessment update; and
  • Schedule of Changes to the Policies Map.

  1. So, essentially the additional Bramcote housing will go ahead without any commitment to improving road infrastructure to deal with the additional traffic. I imagine a white line will be painted on a pavement somewhere to provide a bike lane so the council can claim they’ve provided sustainable transport options (box ticked). And it looks like Bramcote will eventually lose the leisure centre (I read ‘rationalise’ as ‘justifying get rid of’) – replaced with two “hubs” somewhere to the north and south of the Borough (aren’t there already things to the north and south of Bramcote?)…

    Perhaps I’m being overly negative/cynical.


    1. 1. Cyclists will ride illegally on the pavements anyway and continue to expect pedestrians to get out of the way under a tirade of verbal abuse and intimidation.
      2. The Bramcote leisure centre might relocate to the big developemnt site between the anticipated HS2 station and Toton Lane and the council will sell the current leisure centre land for more housing to join up with the new houses on the Bramcote school land. Or maybe not, now that the council is no longer administered under a Tory majority.
