New local plan

New local plan

We are working on a new Local Plan for Chesterfield borough, and recently consulted on our proposed new Local Plan

Consultation on the Local Plan has now ended, any representations received after Friday 22 February might not be taken into account during the independent examination of the Local Plan.

In December 2018 our councillors approved a draft of the new Local Plan for public consultation. The papers and minutes of the December meeting can be seen here.

The new Local Plan builds on the draft of the Local Plan that we consulted on in 2017, see the representations we received here

It updates the overall strategy for the borough and includes new site allocations looking ahead to 2033. When it is adopted it will replace the current local plan
