The Peak District National Park Authority is the statutory Planning Authority for the National Park area. Other related matters such as Building Control or Environmental Health are the responsibility of the relevant District Councils.
The details of current and decided planning applications are available to view online at portal.peakdistrict.gov.uk
Searches can be carried out by applicant name, site address, or by using the application reference number. Details of planning appeals since 2012 are also available via this search tool.
The Development Management service is reacting to the current situation regarding the Covid-19 virus. New planning applications are currently being registered and allocated to officers. Due to limitations to carrying out site visits including limited access inside domestic property there may be delays to the application process.
You can view the weekly list of planning applications received by the Authority.
Due to limited staff resources if you have made a report of potentially unauthorised development to us, there may be delays in investigating and responding to these reports.
In line with government guidance we have issued a temporary update to our Statement of Community Involvement, which outlines how we involve the public in the planning process.
Pre-application Advice Service
Please note that from Monday 10th January 2022 our pre application advice service is suspended and we will not be accepting any requests for pre application advice, other than for schemes relating to Grade 1 and Grade2* listed buildings (but not Grade 2 buildings) and for proposals that constitute Major Development. We will also accept simpler enquiries seeking advice as to the need for planning permission and listed building consent. These are free services.
We will review this on or around the 1st April 2022.
