New local plan
Proposed Submission Local Plan (Regulation 22)
On 28 June 2019 Chesterfield Borough Council submitted the proposed submission Local Plan to the Secretary of State for independent examination.
You can see details of the Local Plan examination here.
Information on the previous stage of plan preparation can be found below.
Consultation on the Pre-submission Local Plan ended on Friday 22 February.
In December 2018 our councillors approved a draft of the new Local Plan for public consultation. See the papers and minutes of the December meeting.
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.
