Ashover Neighbourhood Plan


The Ashover Neighbourhood Development Plan has been written by the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group and approved by the Parish Council. It proposes a number of policies on housing provision, employment, the environment and community facilities. The Parish Council consulted on that Draft Plan for 6 weeks in January 2016 and on a revised Plan in February 2017 and views from those consultations helped inform changes to the document. The Draft Plan has now been submitted to the District Council. The Plan is now subject to a period of consultation for 6 weeks, from Thursday 20th July to Thursday 31st August. 

Why are we Consulting

The Plan sets out a vision for the Parish and establishes the type of development needed to help sustain the community. If agreed, it will become part of the development plan for land use and development proposals within the Parish until 2033.
