North East Derbyshire Local Plan Public Consultation

North East Derbyshire Local Plan Public Consultation

Mon, 26 Feb 2018 17:03 by Jo Mitchell

Following consultation on the draft Local Plan early last year, North East Derbyshire District Council have considered all the comments received alongside additional evidence and have prepared an updated version of the Local Plan. More »

The Publication Plan sets out the policies and proposals that they consider are the most appropriate for the area to meet the needs of the District up to 2034 and is the version they intend to submit to the Government for independent examination.

North East Derbyshire District Council are holding a six-week period of public consultation that runs from 21 February to 4 April 2018, and includes four public events.

  • Clay Cross Social Centre, Market Street, Clay Cross, S45 9JE on Friday 9 March 2018 from 4.30pm – 7.30pm
  • Dronfield Civic Centre (Main Hall), Civic Centre, Dronfield, S18 1PD on Tuesday 13 March 2018 from 4.30-7.30pm
  • Eckington Civic Centre (Main Hall), Market Street, Eckington, S21 4JG on Thursday 15 March 2018 from 4.45-7.45pm
  • Killamarsh Sports Centre (Parish Function Room), Community Campus, Stanley Street, Killamarsh, S21 1EL on Thursday 22 March 2018 from 4.45-7.45pm

Consultation responses at this stage must be set out in a specific way to address legal matters referred to as the 'tests of soundness'. Put simply, they will ask people to consider two questions: Is the Local Plan legal? and is the Local Plan sound?

Cabinet Member for the environment, Councillor Michael Gordon said, "The Plan has been produced as a result of and in line with the Governments' requirements and is the final opportunity for people to comment on the Local Plan before it is submitted for examination. All comments received at this stage will be sent to the independent Planning Inspector appointed by the Government to examine the Plan, so it is important that local residents come and talk to us at the events and express their views."

More detail on how to comment is available on the Local Plan pages on the North East Derbyshire District Council website, at their main office and at libraries throughout the District.

Officers will also be on hand at the public consultation events.
