On Sneinton Dale: the PlaceCheck walk group take a break to discuss what they've seen.
Local communities now have the opportunity to work with their local planners and in consultation with developers to come up with plans for their areas. In contrast to the existing planning system which can lead to a lot of conflict between developers, planners and communities, the new system is intended to encourage developments that the community wants to see, and that fit with local planning policy.
Lively debate: the PlaceCheck walk generated a host of concerns and ideas, along with a lot of passion for the area.
The walk generated lively discussion and feedback over the delicious buffet at TRACs from Sneinton Market stallholder Beccy's Global Kitchen. Sue Jobbins of Shaping Communities gave us the low down on the process that local communities need to go through in order to develop their plans, while Alchemy's Steve and Tom gave a presentation on the 10 key aspects of the Neighbourhood Planning system.
