Progress

The Chapel-en-le-Frith Neighbourhood Development Plan, prepared by the Parish Council, now forms part of the Development Plan for High Peak and will be taken into account in local planning decisions. The plan sets out a vision for the future of the parish, along with policies on:

  • where development should go
  • what sort of facilities need to be provided
  • what improvements are needed in the town

The aim is to make Chapel-en-le-Frith a better place to live, work and visit. Many local people have been involved in producing the Plan, mainly through coming together to act as the working group "Chapel Vision". 

Following a consultation period between December 2013 and January 2014, our Regeneration Select Committee (11 June 2014) formally received the draft Neighbourhood Plan submission documents. The draft plan was published and representations invited between October and November 2014.

Examination

High Peak Borough Council and the Peak District National Park Authority appointed Janet Cheesley as independent examiner of the Chapel-en-le-Frith Neighbourhood Plan.  The Examination took place in January 2015.  Ms Cheesley has delivered her report which recommended that, subject to certain modifications, the plan should proceed to referendum.

Referendum

Following independent examination in January 2015, a referendum was held in the Parish of Chapel-en-le-Frith on 16 July 2015 and asked the question:

"Do you want High Peak Borough Council and the Peak District National Park Authority to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Chapel-en-le-Frith Parish to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?"

96% of votes cast voted Yes.

Making of the Neighbourhood Plan

High Peak Borough Council resolved to 'make' the Chapel-en-le-Frith Neighbourhood Development Plan at a meeting of the Council on 5 August 2015. The Plan now forms part of the Development Plan for High Peak and will be taken into account in local planning decisions.
