Belper Neighbourhood Plan Background
The Localism Act 2011 was passed to encourage decisions to be made by local people instead of everything being decided by remote Borough or District Councils. The Act introduced Community Rights and Neighbourhood Planning.
In April 2014, Belper Town Council decided Belper should have its own Neighbourhood Plan covering the whole of the Civil Parish of Belper. This includes Belper, Belper Lane End, Milford, Makeney, Broadholme, Blackbrook, Farnah Green etc.
The Plan received funding from Locality, the Town Council and the Big Lottery Fund.
Belper Neighbourhood Plan
A referendum was successfully held on May 6th 2021 and passed with the support of 88% of those who voted and the current Neighbourhood Plan was completed in 2019. This means that Amber Valley Borough Council will now use the Neighbourhood Plan for Belper to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area.
