The first stage of consultation in the plan review process, the issues paper, was carried out in Autumn of 2015. Please see the issues paper section of the Newark and Sherwood District Council website for details of the outcome from this consultation.
Having reviewed the comments received and brought together the necessary evidence base we are now in a position to consult on the second stage of the process through our 'preferred approach to strategy'. This document sets out our preferred approach to new development targets, based on the latest evidence, a refined spatial strategy (i.e. where future development should be located), new affordable housing policies and a range of other minor changes to current planning policy.
Consultation on the preferred approach to strategy is being undertaken between the 29th July and 23rd September 2016. The consultation period has been extended to eight weeks due to the summer holidays.
The consultation document and its supporting documents can be viewed on the Newark and Sherwood District Council Website.
