What is the Darley Dale Neighbourhood Plan?

This Neighbourhood Plan is a new type of land use planning document prepared by the
Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group (NPSG) made up of residents and councillors from Darley Dale Town Council. It is a legal planning policy document and once it has been 'made' by Derbyshire Dales District Council (DDDC) it must be used by Planners at Derbyshire Dales District Council in assessing planning applications and Developers as they prepare planning application for submission to DDDC

The Plan has been prepared by Darley Dale Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group (NPSG) on behalf of Darley Dale Town Council. It covers the whole of the Parish of Darley Dale and sets out planning policies for the Plan Area from 2017-2033.
