Inspector's Report

On 14th November, the Council received the Inspector’s final report on the Bassetlaw Core Strategy & Development Management Policies DPD. The report finds the DPD, with the Council’s proposed changes to it, to be ‘sound’.

Submission of the Bassetlaw Core Strategy and Development Management Policies DPD

Bassetlaw District Council formally submitted the Core Strategy and Development Management Policies DPD to the Planning Inspectorate on Monday 31 January 2011. The Secretary of State appointed Chris Anstey BA (Hons) DIPTP DIPLA MRTPI as the independent Inspector to conduct the Examination.

Following scrutiny during public hearing sessions which took place between Tuesday 17 and Thursday 26 May 2011, the Council consulted on post-hearing changes, recommended by the Inspector, and on possible implications of the Draft National Planning Policy Framework on the DPD.

The Council expects to receive the Inspector’s Report on the Examination on Friday 4 November. The information contained on these web pages will therefore be updated in due course.

In line with the relevant planning Regulations, the Submission Core Strategy and all supporting documents are available to view from the following links:

Preferred Options Documents

The Core Strategy will be the first planning policy document to be produced as part of the Local Development Framework (LDF). The Core Strategy will set out the long-term spatial vision for the District, the strategic policies and proposals required to deliver that vision and strategic site allocations for key development areas. The Core Strategy will be accompanied by an implementation plan and a framework for monitoring policies.
