Local Plan Examination

  • Overview Open or Close

    The North East Derbyshire Local Plan was submitted for examination on Thursday 24 May 2018 (Notice of Submission of the North East Derbyshire Local Plan).

    Inspector Sarah Housden BA (Hons) MRTPI from the Planning Inspectorate has been appointed by the Secretary of State to carry out the independent examination of the Local Plan (2014-2034).

    Her task is to consider whether the Local Plan has been prepared in accordance with the relevant legal requirement and if the plan is sound, based on the criteria set out in paragraph 182 of the National Planning Policy Framework (the Framework).

    The Local Plan should be:

    • Positively prepared: it should be based on a strategy that looks at meeting objectively assessed development and infrastructure requirements. This includes; where reasonable to do so; those unmet by our neighbours. It should also be consistent with achieving sustainable development
    • Justified: it should be the most appropriate strategy, when considered against reasonable alternatives, based on proportionate evidence
    • Effective: it should be deliverable and based on effective joint working with partners and neighbours; and
    • Consistent with national policy: it should enable the delivery of sustainable development set out by national policy

    Louise St John Howe has been appointed as the Programme Officer.

    She is an independent officer of the examination and works on the Inspector’s behalf, organising and managing the administrative and procedural matters of the examination process. The Programme Officer acts as the contact for any person who has an interest in the examination, liaising between the Inspector, North East Derbyshire District Council and representors. Any matters that anyone wishes to raise with the Inspector should be submitted through the Programme Officer.
