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 has received funding from Locality, the Town Council and the Big Lottery Fund.
