Adoption - March 2015
Erewash Borough Council adopted the Ilkeston Gateway SPD on 26 March 2015. Please see the Adoption Statement (below) for more information.
The Ilkeston Gateway SPD looks to build on the opportunity presented by the new Ilkeston railway station and help support the delivery of a number of objectives. Most notably, they include promoting economic regeneration across the Gateway area, whilst also improving sustainable access and connectivity to and from this part of Ilkeston. It does this by presenting a range of potential improvement schemes which will support enhanced access, better connectivity and increased employment land opportunities. The SPD focuses on presenting the Borough Council’s vision for the area going forwards towards 2020. The SPD’s creation compliments the policies of the Development Plan and will help secure stakeholder confidence in the Gateway area, leading to significant regeneration benefits.
The draft SPD was consulted on between 15 August and 26 September 2014. The Statement of Consultation (below) summarises the consultation that was undertaken as well as the findings and outcomes. In addition, the SPD was subject to a full Strategic Environmental Assessment screening process which confirmed that the Borough Council did not need to produce an accompanying Sustainability Appraisal. Please see the document below, entitled ‘SEA Screening Statement’ for further information, including the outcomes of this screening process.
