Newark & Sherwood Plan Review - Publication Amended Core Strategy

Nottingham Fringe Area

6.80     The area lies to the south west of the District within the Nottingham–Derby Green Belt and looks to Greater Nottingham for most of its services and jobs. The main settlement in the area is Lowdham, which provides a focus for day to day services and has a station on the Nottingham to Lincoln Railway Line.

6.81    The Core Strategy does not put forward specific policies for this area due to the major constraint on this area of the Nottingham-Derby Green Belt. The main purpose of Green Belt is to prevent urban sprawl by keeping land permanently open. National policy and regional guidance contains tight controls which restrict the type of development that can take place in such areas. Any proposals for development within this area would be considered against Spatial Policy 4A Extent of the Green Belt and 4B Green Belt Development and other policies in the Core Strategy and other elements of the development plan.
