Draft Neighbourhood Plans

Local planning authorities may give weight to relevant policies in emerging plans according to:

(a) the stage of preparation of the emerging plan (the more advanced its preparation, the greater the weight that may be given)

(b) the extent to which there are unresolved objections to relevant policies (the less significant the unresolved objections, the greater the weight that may be given)

(c) the degree of consistency of the relevant policies in the emerging plan to the National Planning Policy Framework (the closer the policies in the emerging plan to the policies in the Framework, the greater the weight that may be given).

Where the local planning authority has issued a decision statement (as set out under Regulation 18 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012) detailing its intention to send a neighbourhood plan to referendum, that plan can be given significant weight in decision-making, so far as the plan is material to the application.


The Plan was submitted to both North East Derbyshire District Council and the Peak District National Park Authority, and a public consultation took place on the Submission Draft Plan for six weeks from Wednesday 1st February to Thursday 16th March 2023.

The Plan is now subject to Examination.

The examiner appointed to inspect and produce a report on the Plan is Nigel McGurk.

Once the examination is complete, depending on the Examiner’s conclusions, the Plan may go forward to Public Referendum in the Parish
