Main Modifications Consultation - Monday 2 November to Wednesday 23 December 2020

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Please note due the Government’s announcement on 31 October 2020 concerning a new national lockdown, the reception area at the Council’s office at Mill Lane will be closed to visitors from 5pm on Wednesday 4 November, 2020 and you will not be able to access consultation material. The lockdown is currently scheduled to be in force over the period on 5 November – 2 December, 2020. The Council will review its position following any subsequent Government announcements and will publish updates on the website. During this period the Main Modifications consultation material will only be available to view online or by requesting a hard copy by post.


Following the Hearing Sessions into the Local Plan the Inspector has identified a number of Main Modifications to the North East Derbyshire Local Plan (Publication Draft) 2014-2034, that she considers are necessary to address issues of soundness and/or legal compliance with the Local Plan. These are put forward without prejudice to the Inspector’s final conclusions on the plan. For more information please see the Statetement of Representations Procedure (.pdf | 229kb)

Consultation Arrangements under Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The Statement of Community Involvement Addendum puts in place the following temporary measures to enable public consultation on the Local Plan to continue during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic:

  • The consultation period has been extended beyond the normal six week period for Local Plan consultations to accommodate the impacts of Coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions.
  • Where people are unable to access documents on-line or at the Council’s main office at Wingerworth, the Council will, on request, provide copies of the key consultation material by post and free of charge.
  • Alternative arrangements are in place to support people who are unable to submit their responses on-line or by email and are unable to leave their home, or arrange for someone else, to post their response due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions.
  • Please see the guidance notes for further information

The Council will keep the consultation arrangements under review throughout the consultation period and will respond accordingly having regard to the most up to date government guidance and local circumstances in relation to Coronavirus (COVID-19).
