The County Council is involved, along with partners across the region, in many aspects of planning. These include spatial (or land use) planning, minerals and waste planning and dealing with plans for County Council development.
Other parts of the County Council have an interest in planning matters, and districts councils play an important role; these are listed in the useful links page.
The County Council is concerned with strategic regional planning, sub-regional planning in the Three Cities sub-area and the Northern Sub-area. We work along with Nottingham City Council and district councils to support their development plans, known as Local Development Frameworks (LDFs).
The County Council produces Minerals and Waste LDFs and administers some planning applications, such as those for schools. The County Council also works to obtain financial contributions from development which are needed to help provide infrastructure such as schools, transport improvements and other community facilities.
