Initial work on the Local Plan; Core Strategy was undertaken under legislation then current requiring the LDF to be in general conformity with the Regional Spatial Strategy (RSS). The RSS set a regional and sub-regional context for the preparation of the LDF and gave the appropriate scale of housing for which provision should be made. The relevant RSS was the East Midlands Regional Plan, but that was revoked by the government with effect from 12th April 2013. The Local Strategy Statement (LSS) now provides the sub-regional context for the Local Plan; Core Strategy and the other parts of the LDF.
This LSS was prepared in the light of guidance published by the Planning Officers’ Society in March 2011.
The Local Strategy Statement was reported to Cabinet on 13th December 2011. The final document and associated Cabinet Report and Appendices can be viewed using the links below.
