Neighbourhood Plan

On Monday this week we received a further Procedural Letter from the Examiner setting out information in relation to the next steps for the Independent Examination of the Neighbourhood Plan. She has suggested that there should be a “proportionate opportunity for those who responded at the earlier Regulation 16 consultation stage (and all those who took part in the hearing session in November 2022) to submit any relevant comments” on the proposed modifications made to the Plan.

Unfortunately because of the Local Elections in May, and purdah now in force, this will be delayed until later in May. The Examiner will provide instructions to ourselves and Broxtowe Borough Council once the elections are over as to how this additional consultation should operate. We will of course update the Plan page and inform everyone once these instructions have been received.

Local Heritage List

It was noted during the Independent Examination hearing of the Neighbourhood Plan that Broxtowe didn’t have a list of local heritage assets. We have of course included our own list for the Area within the Plan, some of which are included in the Nottinghamshire Historic Environment Record (see Chetwynd HER Report and Chetwynd Site HER Map). However, Broxtowe have now started to produce a borough wide list, which will give greater protection to heritage assets that are listed locally.

The Beeston and District Civic Society are working with Broxtowe to include heritage assets within the wider Beeston area and across Broxtowe, see here. If you have suggestions for any heritage assets within the borough that you think should be on the list, then please do so via this BDCS page, or email

The Forum has already provided the list given in the Plan (currently within appendix II, but will move to within the relevant policy in the modified Plan), plus supporting documents detailing those assets and their historical/heritage value.

As always please do feel free to ask any questions you may have on this or anything else via the Contact Us page, and we’ll do our best to answer them via the Questions and Answers page.
