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
The Development Management Service offers a chargeable pre-application advice submitted for works related to all development other than:
- Householder development (other than listed buildings)
- Change of use of barns to any C3 residential use (including as holiday lets)
A review of the pre-application service will be undertaken at the end of April 2021. We will then advise when we will reintroduce advice for these areas of development.
The amend forms and fee schedules available here. We will provide advice on the information submitted with your enquiry. Any subsequent amended plans or proposals for the same site will be treated as a new enquiry.
