Planning policy

With Coronavirus (COVID-19) now affecting many areas of our services to the residents and businesses of Amber Valley, we are keen to keep you right up-to-date with the changes we are being forced to make. Read more about your council services.

The planning policy team is responsible for preparing land use planning policies to guide and encourage future development through the statutory planning framework within Amber Valley. The preparation of planning policy documents is an ongoing process.

The overall aim is to secure an appropriate balance between enabling development whilst seeking to conserve, protect and where possible, enhance the local environment.

The planning policy team is also responsible for working alongside parish councils preparing Neighbourhood Plans for their areas.
