Bolsover District Council partnered with The Future Fox to explore simplifying and speeding up plan making through the creation of an interactive web-based GIS interface that produces policies and site allocations based on data rather than documents.
The focus of the consultation was the Shirebrook Growth Plan. This non-statutory planning document sits above the recently adopted Local Plan for Bolsover District and helps inform where additional growth could be directed in future.
The development of an interactive web-based GIS interface allowed citizens to create and submit alternative proposals by deleting and/or adding sites to the map. This use of digital tools helped develop an evidence base on the current threats and opportunities in Shirebrook and to open up a conversation around how planned growth can help address or respond to these.
