Erewash Local Development Framework (or Local Plan)
Erewash Borough Council has been working on the preparation of a Local Development Framework (LDF) to replace the present Borough Local Plan (Saved Policies). The Council has prioritised the preparation of a Core Strategy Development Plan Document (DPD). For more information on the LDF, Core Strategy and the evidence base that underpins these documents please click on the links on the right hand side of this page.
- LDF Local plan
The Core Strategy sets out the vision and strategy for growth and development in Erewash up to 2028 and includes strategic policies for housing, business, retail, transport and heritage. The Erewash Core Strategy has been prepared in broad alignment with the Aligned Core Strategies of Broxtowe Borough, Gedling Borough and Nottingham City Councils.
The first public stage in preparing this document was the Issues and Options consultation, which took place in the summer of 2009. This was followed by the Option for Consultation in spring 2010 and later consultation in the summer of 2011 on a Housing Provision Position Paper and proposed revisions to Policy 1: Climate Change. Responses to these earlier consultations have helped to shape the Erewash Core Strategy (Submission Version), which sets out how the Council thinks Erewash should develop over the period to 2028.
The Borough Council formally submitted its Core Strategy to the Secretary of State on 30 November 2012. An independent inspector has been appointed to carry out a public examination and report on the Erewash Core Strategy; for more information please click on the Core Strategy Examination link on the left hand side of this webpage.
An important focus of the planning system is the need to ensure that policies are based on clear and up to date evidence and that this is monitored regularly. Please click on the links below to view the evidence produced under each of the eight sections:

Equality and diversity
What is equality and diversity?
Equality is about making sure people are treated fairly. Equality is not about treating everyone in the same way, but it recognises that their needs are met in different ways.
Equality focuses on those areas covered by law, namely the key areas of age, gender, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief and sexual orientation.
- We aim to be recognised as a leader of diversity and equality in our work and as an example of good practice in employment.
- Develop a diverse and inclusive workforce at all levels of the Council.
- Develop services that meet the diverse needs of our customers and potential customers.
Commission services that meet our equality commitments.
- Meet our legal obligations.
