Bassetlaw Local Plan submitted for examination

Bassetlaw District Council have announced that they have submitted their Local Plan to the Government for independently examined by the Planning Inspectorate.

This plan will outline the council’s plans for guiding development in the district up until 2038, including planning policies, strategies, and visions. Housing requirements, employment development, growth infrastructure needs are all a key part of the plan, as well as many other economic, social, and environmental priorities.

David Armiger, Chief Executive at Bassetlaw District Council, said:

“All councils are required to have an up-to-date Local Plan by December 2023 and the submission of our Local Plan allows us to meet that deadline and ensure that we can manage development and growth appropriately in our district.

“The Bassetlaw Local Plan will now be scrutinised by an independent inspector through a comprehensive and unbiased examination process, and we look forward to learning the findings of the Planning Inspectorate.”

Developed over the course of the last six years, the plan has undergone eight rounds of public consultation where input from residents, developers, business, and other stakeholders were all major factors in the development of the published version. This version was submitted to the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing, and Communities this week. The Levelling up secretary is to appoint a Planning Inspector and they will set a timetable for the next steps of the examination.

Th next steps will include a series of hearings, which will include a number of the interested parties who played a part in the development of the plan. The outcome will be a report published by the Planning Inspector, before the plan is adopted in autumn 2023.

End-of-life is often overlooked yet is equally as important to a digital strategy, but what happens to end-of-life technology? What is the impact on the environment, net zero targets? What is the financial impact, is value for money for the taxpayer simply discarded and destroyed along with the technology?
