Following the submission of Derby’s Local Plan Part 1 to the Secretary of State at the end of 2015 and a number of hearings presided over by an independent planning inspector in the spring of 2016, we’re asking residents to have their say on the Proposed Modifications to the Plan.

This is a chance for residents to comment on the proposed modifications before an independent Planning Inspector publishes his report on the ‘Soundness’ of the Derby City Local Plan – Part 1.

This consultation seeks people’s view on the Proposed Main Modifications to the Local Plan Part 1. These modifications have arisen following comments made during the pre-submission consultation, the hearings held in April and May 2016 and changes in national planning policy.

Councillor Martin Rawson, Cabinet Member for Communities and City Centre Regeneration said about the launch of the consultation:

“Derby’s Local Plan is fundamental in shaping the future of the City. We need the views of local residents to ensure we make the best choices for the city and its residents not just for the near-future but also for the long-term.”
