The Local Plan for Chesterfield Borough currently consists of the following documents and strategies:

The evidence base that supports the Local Plan can be found by following the links on the left-hand side of this page.

The new Local Plan

We are currently working on a new Local Plan that will replace the above documents.

This will provide an update of the overall strategy for the borough and new site allocations looking ahead to 2036.

Supplementary Guidance

There is a set of Supplementary Planning Documents to provide extra guidance on certain issues.

We also publish informal site-specific advice on key regeneration sites.

Other Local Plan Documents

Supporting the Local Plan, we have also published the following required documents:

  • the Statement of Community Involvement, setting out how we will consult the community on planning policies and proposals
  • Local Development Scheme, the programme for work on the Development Plan Documents
