Local Plan

The Derbyshire Dales Draft Local Plan is a very important document, as it sets out - up to 2033 - the overall vision, objectives, and policies for the future development of those parts of the Derbyshire Dales that lie outside the Peak District National Park.

After listening to what communities, local businesses and residents have said about the key issues that need to be tackled, and where new development should take place, we prepared a Local Plan which sets out how we think the area should develop in the future.

Local Plan Adoption

The Local Plan was formally adopted at a Special Meeting of Council on the 7th December 2017.
