This report provides for Members consideration and approval a proposed consultation proposals for the first round of public consultation on the review of the Derbyshire Dales Local Plan.

Additional documents:


The Policy Manager introduced a report which provided, for Members consideration, proposals for the first round of public consultation on the review of the Derbyshire Dales Local Plan.


The previous meeting of this Sub-Committee considered a report which presented outline proposals for public consultation on the Derbyshire Dales Local Plan. At that meeting it was resolved to approve the proposals, whilst considering several additional suggestions for implementation into the consultation process. It was also resolved that a future report would be considered by this Sub-Committee, setting out precise details of the forthcoming public consultation.


It was noted within the report that in developing the options for the public consultation, a number of alternatives were prepared. These alternatives were then considered and discussed extensively with the Chair and Vice-Chair of this Sub-Committee following the previous meeting. As a result, it was considered that there were three options with potential to be put forward for public consultation. Details of these options were presented to Members within the report and its appendices.


It was moved by Councillor David Hughes, seconded by Councillor Gareth Gee and


RESOLVED (unanimously)


1.    That preparations for the public consultation proceed, on the basis that estimated housing need and the availability of major development sites be taken into account, with support through policies for appropriate levels of development in smaller communities.


That, the following topics therefore be included in the public consultation process:

-       An appropriate level of development in smaller communities.

-       The viability of identified major sites.


2.    That the details of the public consultation set out in Appendix 1 be developed into formal public consultation documentation to be agreed in conjunction with the membership of this Sub-Committee.


3.    That public consultation commence on 9th May 2024 for a period of six weeks ending on 20th June 2024.


4.    That a further report on the results of the public consultation be considered by a future meeting of this Sub-Committee.


5.    That decisions on the future site allocations in the Local Plan be undertaken as part of the detailed development of the policy and proposals, and be subject to consultation as part of the Regulation 18/19 consultations during the latter part of 2024 and during Spring 2025.


The Chair declared the motion CARRIED.
