 Adopted Neighbourhood Plans:

Holymoorside and Walton Neighbourhood Plan (22nd November 2017).

 Latest news on the neighbourhood plans

A Referendum relating to the adoption of the Wingerworth Neighbourhood Plan will be held on 14 June 2018. Information on the Plan and its preparation is contained in a Note on the Wingerworth Neighbourhood Plan. For information on the referendum please visit the Statement of Information page.

A Neighbourhood Plan Area is being designated for Brampton jointly with the Peak District National Park Authority. A consultation period on the application is currently open and closes on Friday 8 June 2018

Background:

Neighbourhood Planning enables town and parish councils or neighbourhood forums to prepare, in partnership with the community they represent, a formal planning document for their area. The purpose of this tier of plan making is to empower local people to take a proactive role in shaping the future of the areas in which they live and give local people greater ownership of the plans and policies that affect their local area.

The first stage in developing a neighbourhood plan is to designate the 'neighbourhood area' that it will cover. Once a neighbourhood area has been established, a neighbourhood plan may be developed for that area. There is quite a lot of work required to do this, including gathering evidence to support the Plan. 

The group preparing a Neighbourhood Plan (usually a Parish Council) will consult their community before submitting a Draft Plan to the District Council. After further consultation the Submitted Plan will be examined by an independent inspector. The District Council will then decide whether the Plan can be sent forward to the final stage. The final stage is endorsement from the local community through a referendum.

If it is endorsed the Plan is ‘made’ (brought into legal force) by the District Council and is part of the Development Plan for the District. As of March 2017 no Neighbourhood Plans have been made within the District.

The District Council provides support for groups carrying out neighbourhood planning. See our Neighbourhood Planning Protocol for more information on the direct support we can provide.

The following areas have Neighbourhood Plans in preparation, or have requested to become Neighbourhood areas:

The Parish Council consulted on that Draft Plan in for 6 weeks in January 2016 and on a revised Plan in Feb 2017.
