When we consider any planning application, we have to think about any land restrictions that may affect our decision. These are called 'Planning Constraints':
Flooding - to find out if your area is at risk of flooding, please type your postcode into the Environment Agency's Flood Risk Webpage.
Contaminated Land - advice about this is available from the Environment Agency website.
Conservation Areas and
Tree Preservation Orders
Coal Mining - North East Derbyshire is an area of historic mining activity. For certain categories of development a Coal mining risk assessment will be required to support your planning application. To find out more take a look at the Coal Authority's Website.
All of the above could all affect a planning application and so could be a planning constraint.
If you are concerned that your application could be affected by a Planning Constraint, either any of those listed above, or something completely different, please get some advice from our Planning Officers before submitting your application.
See Pre-Application Advice
It is possible to view certain Constraints to Planning via The Derbyshire Mapping Portal
