Quick Update Design Codes

On the 13th March 2023, East Midland DevCo announced to us that they are putting out their “High level” Design Codes out for public consultation, please see the invitation below.

The consultation will be open until the 7th April 2023.

Dear all,

East Midlands Development Company, supported by a partnership of local authorities including Broxtowe Borough Council, Rushcliffe Borough Council and Nottinghamshire County Council, is launching a public consultation for a Strategic Design Code.

Primarily aimed at uplifting design quality at development sites at Toton and Chetwynd Barracks and the Ratcliffe-on-Soar Power Station area, the Strategic Design Code can help create beautiful, better-connected places across the south Nottinghamshire boroughs, addressing the climate emergency and meeting the aspirations of local communities who live and work in the areas.

The Strategic Design Code is a government pilot and part of the national agenda, with the partnership selected to progress one of 25 pathfinder schemes across the country for the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities.

You can now read more and feedback your thoughts online at www.emdesigncode.co.uk

You are welcome to join us at either of the public events below.

As you will be aware your Steering Group have been working on our own Design Codes, that are far more detailed and offer a vision for the Toton & Chetwynd area. We plan to release our Design Codes thoughts in the coming days. We shall also be inviting comments and feedback to help us further inform our work.

Having recently met with the DevCo it is hoped our joined-up approach will allow us to collaborate together to ensure our Design Codes both high level and detailed inform the Masterplans for our areas and allow us to turn our visions into reality.

Steering Group.
