New local plan

New local plan

We are working on a new Local Plan for the Chesterfield borough.

Our councillors will consider a draft of the new Local Plan at meetings in December where they will also be asked to approve a six week public consultation, that will begin in January 2019.

The meetings on 4 and 12 December will be open to the public. The draft Local Plan can be seen within the papers for the meetings

This version builds on the draft of the Local Plan that we consulted on in 2017.

The new local plan will update of the overall strategy for the borough and new site allocations looking ahead to 2033. When it is adopted it will replace the current local plan.

Residents, businesses, national organisations, landowners and developers were invited to make comments on what they think about the consultation draft local plan. The details of the consultation are set out below.
