Have your say

We valued feedback and invited residents to comment on the following:

  • The overall level of housing requirement for Derbyshire Dales.
    - Is the level too high, too low or just right?
  • The distribution of the housing across the plan area
    - Are we distributing the housing in the right towns and villages - if not, where else do you think new housing development should take place?
    - Is the distribution of the housing numbers across the three sub areas about right?
  • The proposed level of housing allocations to the towns and villages across the plan area
    - Are the housing allocations for each town and village, too high, too low or just right?

The deadline for comments was 30 August 2012. Comments submitted after this date were not considered.
