Adopted Local Plan (2005)

The Derbyshire Dales Adopted Local Plan sets out the Council's land use planning policies and proposals for the area outside of the Peak District National Park. As well as identifying and allocating land for development including housing, employment and leisure uses it is used as the basis for the determination of planning applications. The Derbyshire Dales Local Plan was adopted on 24th November 2005.

Under the provisions of the Planning and Compulsory Act 2004 policies in the Local Plan were 'saved' for a period of three years after adoption. From 24th November 2008 some of the policies in the Local Plan ceased to have effect following a Direction by the Secretary of State under Paragraph 1(3) of Schedule 8 of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004.

Local Planning Authorities were invited by the Department for Communities and Local Government to apply to the Secretary of State to issue a Direction to 'save' selected Local Plan policies beyond this three-year period. The Secretary of State approved the schedule of saved policies shown below. All policies not included on this schedule expired on 20th November 2008 and ceased to be material consideration in the determination of planning applications.
