Falling numbers of jobs and increasing unemployment are highlighted as key issues in a new Nottingham County Council report entitled ‘Nottinghamshire Structure Plan – First Monitoring Report’.
It has always been the intention to re-examine the Structure Plan regularly to take account of changing circumstances and this new report is a first stage in the process.
The Nottinghamshire Structure Plan was published in 1978 and finally approved with modifications by the Secretary of State for the Environment in 1980 after considerable public debate.
Public comment on the new report is invited. When comments have been received and analysed they will be presented to the County Council’s Environment Committee which will decide wheteher aany changes need to be made to the plan as a result.
