Adoption of the Derbyshire Dales Local Plan

The Parish Council has received the following correspondence from Mike Hase, Planning Policy Manager at Derbyshire Dales District Council:

“I am writing to inform you that the Derbyshire Dales Local Plan was formally adopted by Derbyshire Dales District Council on the 7th December 2017.

All of the relevant documents including the Local Plan, adoption statements, sustainability appraisal report and the Inspector’s Report are available at Further details are set out in the Adoption Statement.

Following an independent examination of the Local Plan in May 2017, the Inspector’s Report was published on 13 November 2017 and concluded that the Local Plan is sound and legally compliant subject to the inclusion of the Inspector’s main modifications as appended to his Report. These modifications were duly made prior to adoption of the Local Plan.

As you may well be aware the adoption of the Derbyshire Dales Local Plan concludes the statutory preparation process. However, the District Council will continue to monitor the implementation of the Local Plan before embarking on a review of the Local Plan in the future.

The District Council would like to maintain your details on its Local Plan consultation database to enable it to consult you in the future on the Local Plan and other planning related documents. If you would like to be removed from the Local Plan consultation database please contact us. If you would like to remain on the consultation database but would prefer to receive information by email please contact us by emailing;”

Doveridge update – September 2017

Firstly, there is the good news that the applications by Gladmans to build on a site in Babbs Lane, and which were refused by DDDC, went to appeal in June. Both application appeals were dismissed by the Inspector. Gladmans do have until 25th September to re appeal but this can only be a legitimate concern with regards to the process, and it is felt that this would be unlikely.

Secondly, work will be commencing on the site at Hall Drive on 25th September, and a letter is to be delivered to all residents located closest to the site. The times of working will be 8a.m. until 17.00p.m. Monday to Friday. Any concerns, queries, whilst this initial phase takes place please contact the site manager at the site office.

Thirdly, all residents should be aware of a Consultation request for Hazardous Substances Consent on Land East or Twin Oaks Farm, Yelt Lane, Doveridge, under reference : 17/00858/HAZ. The Parish Council will be objecting but would urge all residents to voice their opinions by logging onto DDDC planning, under the above reference and sending in their own opinions to DDDC.
