Local plan and strategic planning
Chesterfield Borough Local Plan
The Local Plan provides the spatial planning strategy for the borough to guide where new development goes and is the basis for decisions on planning applications.
The Local Plan for Chesterfield Borough currently consists of the following documents and strategies:
- the 2013 Local Plan; Core Strategy
- saved policies of the 2006 Replacement Chesterfield Borough Local Plan
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.
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
