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 

    Programme Officer

    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.

     Local Development Scheme – LDS 8

    The LDS defines the documents that will form the North East Derbyshire Local Plan and sets out a timetable for their production, including the key stages when local communities have the opportunity to get involved.

    The Council is required (by Section 15 of the Planning & Compulsory Purchase Act 2004, (as amended by the Localism Act 2011)) to prepare and maintain a Local Development Scheme (LDS). It must also publish up-to-date information showing the state of the authority's compliance (or non-compliance) with the timetable. 

    The Council’s current Local Development Scheme (LDS8) came into effect on 18th January 2018, following approval by Cabinet on 3rd January 2018 and a short period of public consultation.

    LDS8 Update – September 2018

    The Local Plan was submitted for examination in May 2018 in line with the adopted timetable, with hearing sessions expected to commence in September 2018.  The dates for the hearing sessions are now set to commence in November 2018 and it is not be possible to indicate a timescale for the publication of the Inspector’s Report or plan Adoption until the hearings have been closed.

    An update of the current timetable position in relation to the adopted timetable (LDS8) is set out below.   This will be kept up to date as the examination progresses

     

     lds8

    Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) – The adopted Local Development Scheme timetable indicates that the Council would make a decision on whether there is a business case for preparing a CIL in February 2018.  

    On 14 February 2018 Cabinet considered a report (Agenda Item 4) which set out the case for implementing CIL.  This was based upon the findings of a ‘Whole Plan Viability Study commissioned by the Council and undertaken by an expert viability consultancy which assessed the overall viability of the Local Plan in line with the NPPF, the NPPG and other relevant guidance on viability in plan-making.

    The study found that the combination of relatively low values and current high build costs creates a challenging picture for development viability in North East Derbyshire and did not consider the adoption of a CIL to be appropriate at this point in time, but rather the council should continue with the use of the s106 process to help fund necessary infrastructure.

    Members resolved to note the findings of the Whole Plan Viability Study and agreed not to implement a Community Infrastructure Levy for the District alongside the emerging Local Plan.

    Position Statement

    The Council published a ‘Position Statement’ in November 2016 to provide information about progress with the preparation of the new Local Plan. The statement explains why we are preparing a new Local Plan, how the Plan is  evolving in Autumn 2016, and what will be the next steps in the process towards its adoption. It was not a document for public consultation, but for information provision only.

    Initial Draft Local Plan (Part 1) 2015

    We consulted on the initial draft of the Local Plan (Part 1) and Schedule of Potential Housing Sites between 12 February and 26 March 2015. These can be downloaded below. 

    Local Strategy Consultation 2012

    Consultation on the Local Strategy took place between 2 August and 13 September 2012 and 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.

    The consultation document and three background papers can be viewed and downloaded below.

    Core Strategy Issues and Options Consultation 2009

    Previously, we have worked on the preparation of the Core Strategy. However, due to changes in the planning system, the Council will now be preparing a Local Plan. The work already done on the Core Strategy is taken into account when preparing the Local Plan Part 1: Strategic Policies.

    Consultation on the Core Strategy Issues and Options took place between 30 th April and 26 th June 2009 and the consultation documents are below.

 Adopted Neighbourhood Plans:

 Ashover Parish Neighbourhood Plan (26th February 2018)

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:

Ashover

Following the positive result of the Public Referendum held on the 8th February 2018 on Ashover Neighbourhood Plan, North East Derbyshire District Council has ‘made’ the Plan and it will now be used by the District Council Planning officers to assess planning applications submitted within the Parish.

The Ashover Neighbourhood Plan has been written by the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group and approved by the Parish Council. The Parish Council consulted on that Draft Plan in for 6 weeks in January 2016 and on a revised Plan in Feb 2017. Responses to those consultations helped inform changes to the document which was submitted to North East Derbyshire District Council.

The District Council confirmed to the Parish Council on 14th August 2017 that it was satisfied that the statutory requirements set out in paragraph 6 of Schedule 4B of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (as amended) have been met.

Letter of 14th August 2017

The Plan was subject to a period of consultation for 6 weeks, from Thursday 20th July to Thursday 31st August. 2017. The submission documents and responses to the consultation can be found below.

The Plan was examined and the Examiner provided a report, in which he recommended that the Plan may proceed to a Public Referendum subject to some amendments.

The District Council decided that the Plan, as amended in line with the Examiner’s recommendations, may go forward to Public Referendum; with a date of 8 February. Details are available on the Elections web pages.
