Derbyshire Dales Local Plan Update


I’m writing to inform you that the District Council will be undertaking six weeks of public consultation on the Derbyshire Dales Draft Local Plan commencing on 7th April 2016. This period of public consultation will provide you with the opportunity to have your say on the planning policies for the future use and development of land for the period up to 2033.
The Derbyshire Dales Draft Local Plan includes many policies and proposals that are intended to be used to guide new development across the plan area including new housing and economic development, whilst at the same time seeking to protect and enhance the special environmental qualities of the area.
The Local Plan will be available to view from the Councils website from 7th April using the following link: On this page you will also be able to complete an online questionnaire with your views on the different elements of the plan.
