Plans move on a step: Council consultation starts

Consultation on Application to Designate a Neighbourhood Plan Area and Forum for the Sneinton area.

Nottingham City Council has received our application for the designation of a Neighbourhood Area and Forum in and around Sneinton. 

The application is the first formal step in the preparation of a Neighbourhood Plan for the Sneinton area. Neighbourhood Plans are planning documents, written by the local community which can be used, for example, to set out where new development should go and what it should look like. When complete, it will be an important factor in the determination of 

panning applications.

The application for designation of the Neighbourhood Forum has been made by Sneinton Neighbourhood Forum. The Forum is made up of members who are either local residents, belong to community groups or work for local businesses. 

The proposed Neighbourhood Area boundary (which will become the Neighbourhood Plan boundary) is shown on the plan available on this web site. 

The boundary extends to the south along Daleside Road then cuts in along Colwick Road around Colwick Woods to Oakdale Road then along Cardale Road to meet Carlton Road. The boundary then runs east along Carlton Road. The western boundary is along Manvers Street to include Sneinton Market. 

Details of the proposed Neighbourhood Area and Forum (including a plan showing the proposed Neighbourhood Area boundary) can be viewed at: The documents are also available at Sneinton Library on Sneinton Boulevard, at Bakersfield Avenue on the corner of Watson Avenue and Swains Avenue (just off Sneinton Dale) and at the City Council’s office at the above address. Response forms are also available at these locations.

Nottingham City Council is keen to hear any views you may have on the Neighbourhood Area and Neighbourhood Forum. Comments may be made in writing to the City Council’s office at Loxley House (at the address given above), or by email to:

All comments should be made by 5pm on Monday 13 October 2014.

After the consultation period closes, the City Council will consider all comments received and will make a decision on whether to approve the designation of the Neighbourhood Forum and Neighbourhood Area later in the year. Please note that if the Neighbourhood Forum designation is agreed by the City Council, no other organisation or body may be designated for the area until the original designation expires or is withdrawn.

If you have any queries concerning this issue, please contact the Council's Policy and Research Team on 0115 876 3970.
