Stanton consultation gets underway

The six week public consultation on Erewash Borough Council’s Stanton masterplan is now underway and will run until Monday 24 October.
 
Residents and businesses are being asked to give their views on the Stanton SPD (Supplementary Planning Document) that has been drafted by the council as a key guide for any developer wanting to put together a realistic planning application for the Stanton Regeneration Site.
 
The SPD document can be viewed via the homepage of the council’s website at www.erewash.gov.uk  where a comments form is also available to download.
 
Drop-in sessions for residents and business people to view the documents and talk to planners have also been arranged at the following locations:

Sandiacre Memorial Institute, Doncaster Avenue – Friday 23 September, 2pm-6pm
Kirk Hallam Community Hall – Wednesday 28 September, 2pm-6pm

Paper copies of the SPD are available to view at all libraries in Ilkeston, Long Eaton, Sandiacre, Borrowash and on the mobile library in Long Eaton. It is also available at Ilkeston Town Hall, Long Eaton Town Hall and the Shopmobility centres in both towns. For residents living on the boundary edge of the borough, copies have also been placed in Duffield, Spondon and Allestree libraries.

Councillor Michael Powell, Erewash Borough Council’s Lead Member for Regeneration and Planning, says:
“This masterplan is an important document that will drive the development of the Stanton site and it is absolutely vital that our residents and business community have their say and help us to shape the expectations we have for the site.”
 
The Stanton Regeneration Site is featured in the council’s Core Strategy for redevelopment to provide, among other things, around 2,000 homes, a business park, a primary school, shops, open spaces, local jobs and other community facilities.
 
All documents (including the SPD, its accompanying Sustainability Appraisal (SA) and Representation Form) are available to view at www.erewash.gov.uk/planning-buildingcontrol/planning-policy/stanton-regeneration-site-supplementary-planning-document.html.
