Planning

innovative building in the Peak District

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.

You can view the weekly list of planning applications received by the Authority.

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 Grade 2* listed buildings (but not Grade 2 buildings) and for proposals that constitute Major Development.

We will continue to accept simpler enquiries seeking advice as to the need for planning permission and listed building consent, which is a free service.

We appreciate this decision may cause significant inconvenience and apologise for that, however it has been made necessary due to resource issues in the P l anning Service which we are currently making every effort to address.

Update

We reviewed the suspension in April and again in May and have come to the conclusion that in order to enable our planning officers to continue to focus on processing applications, we will not be in a position to restart the pre-application advice service until at least September 2022, when a further review will take place. We understand that this will cause inconvenience to applicants and agents, and apologise again for this.
