Neighbourhood plans


Many communities in the National Park are preparing neighbourhood plans. They are at different stages of the process. You can keep track of what's happening here.

Holme Valley

A referendum on Chapel-en-le-Frith neighbourhood plan was held on 16th July 2015. The Plan received a majority 'yes' vote; 96% of people voting 'yes' on a turn-out of 32%. As a result of this, High Peak Borough Council and the Peak District National Park Authority have now 'made' Chapel-en-le-Frith neighbourhood plan part of the development plan for Chapel-en-le-Frith neighbourhood area.

Whaley Bridge

Neighbourhood area designated, community consultation on going, beginning to look at options and draft policy.


A referendum on Bradwell Neighbourhood Plan was held on Thursday 22nd October 2015. Of those eligible to vote, 260 voted 'yes' and 46 voted 'no'. Therefore 85% voted 'yes' and 15% voted 'no'. The turnout was 26.8%. The requirement is that the plan must be 'made' (adopted) if more than half of those voting in a referendum vote in favour of the plan being used to help decide planning applications in the Neighbourhood Plan area. The majority 'yes' vote was 85% so the Peak District National Park Authority has 'made' the Bradwell Neighbourhood Plan part of the development plan for Bradwell neighbourhood area.
