Application to designate a Neighbourhood Area and Neighbourhood Forum for Buxton

A residents group known as "The Buxton Neighbourhood Forum Community Interest Company (CIC)" has applied to High Peak Borough Council to designate a neighbourhood area and neighbourhood forum for Buxton under sections 61F and 61G of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990. The application is for a neighbourhood area covering the following wards: Barms, Burbage, Buxton Central, Corbar, Cote Heath, Limestone Peak, Stone Bench and Temple. A map is provided as part of the area application.

Having neighbourhood area and forum designations will mean that the Buxton Neighbourhood Forum CIC can begin to prepare a neighbourhood plan or neighbourhood development order.

In line with the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 (as amended) the Council has published a copy of the area and forum applications below. Comments should be received by 5.00pm on Tuesday 12th January 2021. Should the neighbourhood forum be designated for the area, no other organisation or body can be designated for the area until that designation expires or is withdrawn.

Application Documents

Where necessary paper copies of the information can also be provided by using the contact details below. Due to the government restrictions the availability of documents at Buxton Library will be kept under review.
