Rushcliffe Borough Council is preparing a Local Development Order to help shape and ultimately define the plans for redevelopment of the Ratcliffe-on-Soar power station site. If approved, the Local Development Order could grant planning permission for a range of modern industrial uses on the site, including advanced manufacturing, low-carbon energy production, battery production and storage, logistics, and research and development. We are at the start of this process and, through this public consultation, we would like to share our initial ideas and seek your views on the future of the site.
The site is part of the East Midlands Freeport, which is a government initiative to encourage innovation and job creation. Rushcliffe Borough Council is working with Uniper, owner of the power station, to explore options for the redevelopment of the site. Redevelopment could support thousands of jobs and secure its continued contribution to the East Midlands economy.
What is a Local Development Order?
Local Development Orders can be made by Councils to streamline the planning process. They give planning permission to specific types of development within a defined area. This allows development to come forward more quickly, whilst enabling the Council to retain control about the future use of the site. Government guidance encourages landowners and local authorities to work together when preparing Local Development Orders, because they create certainty for investors and speed up delivery.

Please be aware that the affordable homes being built off Nottingham Road by Platform Homes will be advertised on the Choice Based Lettings website from October 21st. Initially the applications will be ring fenced for those with a local connection and who are on our register. However they will only be held for local residents for 10 working days (or two separate advertisements), after which those from neighbouring parishes or the wider Borough could apply to occupy them. Consequently it is vital that local residents who are in need are made aware that they have two weeks to apply through the Choice Based Letting System.
