Planning Committee

A single Planning Committee was created at the Annual Council Meeting on 28 May 2015 to replace the former Central & Northern Area Planning Committee and Southern Area Planning Committee.  Recent Agendas and Minutes from the former committees can be found below.

See the membership of the Planning Committee here.  To see the full list of Committee meetings for the year 2018/19 please click here.

The Planning Committee, which meets alternately at The Venue (The Bowls Club), Wyaston Road, Ashbourne, DE6 1BN and at the Town Hall in Matlock, determines planning applications in the Derbyshire Dales.  The committee can also propose matters of planning policy to the Council.

Agendas and reports will be available online five days prior to the Committee. Minutes will be available within 5 working days and will be considered for approval at the next meeting.


Location: Council Chamber, Town Hall, Matlock (M) and The Venue (The Bowls Club), Wyaston Road, Ashbourne, DE6 1BN (A) Time: 6.00pm
