Neighbourhood Plan Regulation 16 Consultation – Difficulties Resolved

A Forum member contacted us recently to let us know that they had had some difficulty in obtaining or reviewing a paper copy of the Neighbourhood Plan at the Council Offices, to aid their response to the consultation. In fact a copy was not available at all despite two visits! We don’t know if this is an isolated incident or if other people have had similar difficulties, so we have taken the unusual step to publicise this directly with everyone rather than just via the Questions and Answers page.

We wrote to the Council to raise this important issue, and received an apology on your behalf and the following response:-

“There should have been a paper copy of the Neighbourhood Plan available for ‘inspection’ within the Reception of the Council Offices; I don’t know if someone has removed the ‘inspection copy’ of the Plan, but I have asked if our Admin Team could print a replacement copy of the Plan and leave this in Reception.

I would like to sincerely apologise to the member of the public for the inconvenience caused. If anyone else has been experiencing difficulties in terms of inspecting the document at the Council Offices, I would encourage them to contact the Planning Policy Team by telephone 0115 917 7777 and asking for Planning Policy, or by sending an email to

Please do not hesitate to contact Broxtowe as above if you have had similar difficulties.

As always please do feel free to ask any questions you may have on this or anything else via the Contact Us page – it really does work as per this case!
