The Local Plan: 

  • Identifies specific sites for housing, employment and retail development up to 2011.  

  • Identifies sites and areas for other land uses, including recreation, allotments, urban green spaces, community facilities, wildlife sites, cycle routes and trails.  

  • Defines the limits of settlements within which development will generally be permitted.  

  • Sets out policies to control and influence the location and form of development within the district. 

The North East Derbyshire District Local Plan was formally adopted on 28th November 2005.  Under the provisions of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 the Local Development Framework system was introduced and policies in the Local Plan were ‘saved’ for a period of 3 years after adoption. 

Copies of the Adopted Local Plan including the text and maps can also be viewed at our offices during usual opening hours. 

You can buy hard copies of the Local Plan from us.  Price £35.00 plus £10.50 postage and packaging 

An Interactive version of The Adopted Local Plan is available here.

Supplementary documents relating to the local plan can be viewed here.

 Adopted Neighbourhood Plans:

 Ashover Parish Neighbourhood Plan (26th February 2018)

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

 Latest news on the neighbourhood plans:

The Examination of the Wingerworth Neighbourhood Plan has been completed and a decision is being prepared (provisionally for the March Cabinet) a referendum will follow. A Neighbourhood Plan Area is being designated for Brampton.

 

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

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.

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.

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.
