Shirebrook Growth Plan

We have decided to prepare a Growth Plan for Shirebrook. The Growth Plan will be a dedicated plan for Shirebrook, setting out plans for how Shirebrook could grow and prosper over the next five years and beyond. It will cover issues such as living and working in Shirebrook, and will particularly focus on the town centre and the Market Place and environmental issues.

What happened previously?

We started the preparation of the Shirebrook Growth Plan in February 2022 and ran an initial consultation exercise during March 2022. Feedback on what the people of Shirebrook said during this consultation exercise is set out in the Shirebrook Growth Plan newsletter issue 1.

Following this exercise, we ran a second stage of consultation during September 2022 which focused on masterplanning to understand what land uses the people of Shirebrook thought any growth in the town should include. Feedback on what the people of Shirebrook said during this consultation exercise has been presented through a Virtual Reality Balloon Ride.

What's happening now?

Following consideration of the feedback referred to above, we have prepared a Draft Growth Plan which outlines the consultation feedback to date and the policy framework for the Growth Plan, before setting out a number of options for additional growth and other questions about Shirebrook's town centre, green spaces and countryside.

We are now consulting on the Draft Shirebrook Growth Plan and the consultation exercise runs from Monday 4 March through to 5pm on Friday 5 April 2024.

To read the Draft Shirebrook Growth Plan and to tell us what you think, please visit our dedicated PlaceBuilder consultation website.

A copy of the Draft Shirebrook Growth Plan can also be viewed at the Shirebrook Contact Centre and Shirebrook Library, along with copies of the formal representation form.

An officer from the Planning Policy and Housing Strategy team will also be available at the Shirebrook contact centre between 10am and 4pm on Tuesdays throughout the consultation period. An open public drop-in session will be held on Monday 18 March at Shirebrook Leisure Centre from 4pm to 7pm.

Timetable going forward

The timetable for the next stages of the preparation of the Shirebrook Growth Plan is as follows:

  • March 2024 – Consultation on draft Shirebrook Growth Plan
  • September 2024 – Adoption of Shirebrook Growth Plan
