Amber Valley Borough Council is asking local people to get involved in ambitious long-term plans for new homes, business growth and local services. 

It is part of the development of a new Local Plan. This will set a framework for future development in the borough up to 2038 and will be used by the council to guide decisions on planning applications and to support work with developers.

The consultation will take place over 12 weeks from 8 July to 30 September 2021.

Residents, businesses and community groups can get involved by visiting the borough council’s website via the following link:

Councillor Tony Harper, the borough council’s cabinet member for regeneration and community safety said: "The Local Plan sets out the vision for future development in the borough. It is the local guide to what can be built where, shaping infrastructure investments, and determining the future pattern of development. 

"This plan strikes an important balance between the need for development, regeneration and renewal and the protection of the natural and historic environment. The plan also makes sure that future development will take place in a planned way, supported by improvements to highways, healthcare facilities and other local infrastructure.

"This means we can continue to attract investment that creates jobs, opportunities and good quality homes. Our Local Plan supports our long-term ambitions as a local authority and sets out where there is potential for growth and development opportunities within Amber Valley. This stage is an important opportunity for residents to comment on the options and tell us what they think."
