Local Plan consultation 2017


Local residents and businesses from across North East Derbyshire District are being invited to have their say on our emerging Local Plan and how they want to see the area grow and develop up to 2033. Councillors have agreed the contents of the draft Local Plan and we will undertake a six-week public consultation period which starts on Friday 24th February until Friday 7th April 2017. The document sets out the overarching vision and objectives that will guide the development of the District together with our Spatial Strategy for where development should go. It lays out our strategy and overall approach to new development, together with key policies that will be used to determine planning applications and contains proposed allocations for large housing and employment sites.
