Local Development Scheme - Stages

These stages are key to the development of the Local Plan achieving the following aims and requirements:

  • Evidence base development: The strategic direction of the Local Plan, any development targets it sets or protections it provides against development must be underpinned by an up to date and relevant evidence base. This stage of the plan preparation is an ongoing process throughout the Local Plan’s preparation. It is this evidence base that will underpin the local plan at examination. This period will also meet the council’s duty to cooperate with our neighbouring authorities. 
  • Initial Draft consultation: Completed in October to December 2016. This first stage of formal consultation presented the public and all interested bodies the initial ideas and direction of the Local Plan. The responses received have informed the development of next stages of the Local Plan to ensure it meets the development needs of Bassetlaw in the most sustainable way.
  • Draft Plan consultation
    • Part 1: Strategic Plan: Formal public consultation. This will be the first opportunity for the public and all interested bodies to consider a fully drafted Vision, Objectives, Spatial Strategy and strategic polices for the District and proposed Strategic site allocations and make formal comments on them.
    • Part 2 Local Plan: Formal public consultation. This will be the first opportunity for the public and all interested bodies to consider the draft local polices and proposed specific site allocations and make formal comments on them.
  • Publication consultation: Formal public consultation on the version of the Local Plan combining Parts 1 and 2 that the Council considers ready for examination (and adoption). This provides the opportunity for the public and all interested bodies to consider the plan and make any additional consultation responses.
  • Submission of the Local Plan: The Publication version of the Local Plan (with any proposed changes in light of consultation responses received) must be submitted to the Planning Inspectorate for its examination in public on behalf of the Secretary of State.
  • Public Examination: The Local Plan will be examined by an independent inspector to assess whether the plan has been prepared in accordance with the duty to cooperate, legal and procedural requirements and whether it is considered to be sound. A sound plan must be positively prepared, justified, effective and consistent with national policy.
  • Formal Adoption: Once the examination process is complete, adoption is the final stage of putting a Local Plan in place. This requires confirmation by a Full Council meeting. Once the Local Plan is adopted it becomes the Local Development Plan for Bassetlaw (replacing the current Core Strategy and Development Management Polices Development Plan Document).

Progress and amendments to this timetable are detailed in the Councils Annual Monitoring Reports.

Once adopted this Local Plan will formally replace the Core Strategy and Development Management Polices Development Plan Document (December 2011), which is the current Development Plan for Bassetlaw.
