Retford Town Centre neighbourhood plan


Retford Town Centre Neighbourhood Area was designated by Bassetlaw District Council on 4 March 2021, alongside the designation of Retford Town Centre Neighbourhood Planning Group as the associated Neighbourhood Forum for the area. The Neighbourhood Area has been designated as a business area, in recognition of the proportion of business interests. A modification to the Neighbourhood Area, extending the boundary to incorporate the full extent of Bridgegate and environs, was approved by Bassetlaw District Council on 23 September 2021. Consultation on the Pre-Submission Draft Neighbourhood Plan concluded in September 2023, with work currently underway to prepare the Submission Draft.
