Ashover Parish Neighbourhood Plan - How it came about..

Ashover Parish's Neighbourhood Plan – How it came about…

Ashover Parish now has a neighbourhood plan which was approved in a referendum of the parishioners in early 2018. The idea of Neighbourhood plans was a Government initiative a number years ago, which was intended to give local residents more of a say in the way we protect our heritage and plan for the future, it could almost be the 'Magna Carta' for Ashover Parish. The plan was produced by a working group under the guidance of Ashover Parish Council, with help from volunteer members of the public and a consultee from a company familiar with producing Neighbourhood plans. There were a number of public consultations and questionnaires which went into the production of the plan. The Plan had to be approved by North East Derbyshire District Council and and Independent Examiner prior to becoming a made document. The plan took 3 years to complete and is now an important document used in any planning applications within the Parish. The plan covers many aspects dealing with parish life, some of which are planning, jobs, economy, environment and many more. The plan can be viewed on the homepage of the Ashover Parish Council website or the following link:-
