The Adopted Local Plan 2016

The Council has conducted a review of the High Peak Local Plan adopted in 2016 to determine if it is up to date. The review concluded that the following policies are considered out of date when considered against the latest national policy and evidence and therefore will be given less weight when determining planning applications:

  • Policy S3 (Strategic Housing Development)
  • Policy S4 (Maintaining & Enhancing an Economic Base)
  • Policy H4 (Affordable Housing)

The remainder of the policies in the Local Plan are deemed up to date as they are broadly in line with current national policy and evidence but they may be revised to address consequential impacts of the wider plan update or to improve clarity for instance. Further details about the Council's review of the current Local Plan are available here:

An update to the Local Plan will now commence to update these policies and consider the scope for wider amendments. More information can be found in the 'Local Plan Review' section.
