Your say on the BIG development issues
Please note this stage of the consultation has now closed. Thanks to everyone who had their say - the results are now being analysed and we will update this page as soon as we can. The details below are for background information.
How many new homes should be built in North East Derbyshire?
In which settlements should new homes, jobs and services be located?
How should a review of the Green Belt be carried out?
These are some of the key issues we asked for your help to answer, during a public consultation into the preparation of North East Derbyshire’s Local Plan, which took place in summer 2012.

The Government has introduced a new planning system for England which replaces the Local Development Framework system (including Core Strategies) with Local Plans. Rather than abandon the work already done on the Core Strategy (see link in the list on the left) and start again on the production of a single Local Plan, we have decided to prepare the Local Plan 2011 - 2031 in two parts comprising:
Part 1 incorporating Strategic Policies, and
Part 2 incorporating Allocations and Development Management Policies.
Consultation on Local Plan Part 1 took place between 2 August and 13 September 2012.
This consultation stage sought comments about the overall development issues and aims, how much new development there should be and where, and whether Green Belt land should be used to provide local affordable housing.
Please note that at this stage we asked for comments on the over-arching approach that will guide future development (for example the number of new homes and criteria by which we will decide which areas of land should be allocated). We are not at the stage of allocating specific sites for different types of development – this will be done through the Local Plan Part 2.

People were invited to submit comments online, send us their views in writing, or attend one of the drop-in sessions which were held around the district
The deadline for comments for this stage of the Local Plan consultation was Thursday 13 September 2012.
The Local Plan is underpinned by a number of key studies which form the evidence base and can be viewed online.
