Highway Development Control

Planning Applications

Highway Development Control ensures that new developments do not have a detrimental impact on Nottingham City's highway network. The Local Planning Authority (LPA) has the power to refuse/accept development proposals/applications. It is the Highway Authority's role to assess whether a development will have a detrimental impact on traffic and road safety.

When considering a planning application or development proposal, there are generally three options or recommendations available to the Highway Authority; offering no objections to proposals, request planning conditions to be put in place and request refusal of the planning application.

Statutory Agreements

Many approved planning applications are subject to conditions and/or legal agreements such as the agreement to contribute to local facilities, an agreement between the developer and the council for any works to be conducted on the Highway or agreement to cover the cost of developments whereby a new highways is to be created. Developers are advised to discuss these issues with the Council's Highway Development Control section at an early stage to avoid delays at the formal planning stage.
