South Wingfield Neighbourhood Plan

The South Wingfield Neighbourhood Plan has been prepared by South Wingfield Parish Council and formally made by Amber Valley Borough Council.

The Neighbourhood Area covers the whole of the parish of South Wingfield and it sets out planning policies for this area from 2020 - 2035. The South Wingfield Neighbourhood Plan forms part of the Development Plan for the area and will be used through the planning process to assess future development proposals.

Strategic Environment Assessment (SEA) and Habitats Regulations Assessment (HRA) Screening Determination

Amber Valley Borough Council has determined that the draft South Wingfield Neighbourhood Plan 2020-2035 (as proposed to be modified) should not be screened into the SEA process and also concluded that it would not be likely to have a 'likely significant effect' on any habitats site, either alone or in combination with any other plan or project and therefore detailed Appropriate Assessment (Stage 2 of the Habitats Regulations process) is not required.

South Wingfield Parish Council has decided to undertake a review of their Neighbourhood Plan.
