Please click here to view the online Consultation Draft Local Plan and representations received.

The Council published the “North East Derbyshire Local Plan: Consultation Draft” for public consultation between 24th February and 7th April 2017 and is now considering all representations received. To view these representations, please click the link above. The Consultation Draft can be downloaded below.

The Consultation Draft sets out the proposed strategy for growth and development across North East Derbyshire to 2033, together with land use allocations and key policies that will be used to decide on planning applications. Once adopted, it will become part of the development plan for North East Derbyshire and will replace the ‘saved’ policies of the 2005 Adopted North East Derbyshire District Local Plan. In line with the Local Development Scheme, it is anticipated that the next stage of public consultation will take place in the Autumn 2017.

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.

Neighbourhood Planning in North East Derbyshire

Adopted Neighbourhood Plans:

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

 Lates news on the neighbourhood plans:

The Examination of the Wingerworth Neighbourhood Plan will commence in the New Year. The Referendum on the Ashover Neighbourhood Plan will take place on February 8th 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:
