A special meeting of the full Derbyshire Dales District Council reinstated the Matlock Gritstone Road site into the latest version of the draft Local Plan on Monday night (8 August).
The meeting at Matlock’s County Hall rejected the recommendation of the council’s Local Plan Advisory Committee on 27 July 2016 to delete the 430-homes potential development site from a pre-submission draft that now goes out to another round of public consultation.
The agenda for the meeting is available to view on our Latest Committee Papers page.
Monday’s meeting will now be followed by an online consultation on the pre-submission draft from 11 August to 22 September supported by public meetings on 16 August at Ashbourne’s Elim Pentecostal Church, and on 22 August at Highfields School, Matlock. Both start at 7pm.
Once approved, a final version of the Local Plan – designed to guide local development in the Dales up to the year 2033 – will be submitted at the end of the year for Government inspection.
The latest draft of the Plan has been debated in recent weeks at three meetings of the Local Plan Advisory Committee, during which councillors considered feedback from an earlier six-week consultation that took place in April and May.
