Adopted Local Plan

The planning system provides a framework for managing the development and use of land. At a local level this framework is called a Local Plan.

The Local Plan for South Derbyshire has been prepared in two parts. Part 1 was adopted by Full Council on June 13, 2016. The Local Plan Part 2 was adopted by Full Council on November 2, 2017. The 1998 Local Plan has now been fully superseded, together Part 1 and Part 2 are the primary documents that need to be taken into account when making decisions on planning applications across the District.

Adopted Local Plan Part 1

The Adopted Local Plan Part 1 covers the period 2011 to 2028 and is the strategic element of the Local Plan.

It sets the long-term vision, objectives and strategy for the spatial development of South Derbyshire. The plan sets the amount of housing and employment development required within the District over the plan period, allocates strategic housing and employment sites and contains policies used in the determination of planning applications.

Adopted Local Plan Part 2

The Local Plan Part 2 proposes non-strategic housing allocations and detailed development management policies. Details of the Local Plan Part 2 examination are available on the local plan Programme Officer's website.

The report of Inspector Mike Hayden BSc(Hons) DipTP MRTPI on the examination of the Local Plan Part 2 was received on September 13, 2017. The Local Plan Part 2 was subsequently adopted at a meeting of Full Council on November 2, 2017.
