The Belper Neighbourhood Plan (2019-2035) is now open to public consultation and will be available at Belper Library and the Town Council.

The consultation on the plan will run from Thursday 21st March to Friday 3rd May 2019 and will give the public a chance to review all the reports and evidence in one place.

Many organisations and community groups will be contacted directly asking them to complete the questionnaire for their comments.

We will be holding public meetings over the period.

  • On Tuesday 2nd April, 7pm at No 28, Market Place.
  • On Saturday 6th April 10 am till 12.30 pm at Town Council Offices, St John’s Chapel.
  • On 13th April 9 am till 1pm, Stall on Belper Market.

If any other group wishes to hear from them then they are happy to try to attend.

What is a Neighbourhood Plan?

The Government describes a Neighbourhood plan as something which:

“gives communities direct power to develop a shared vision for their neighbourhood and shape the development and growth of their local area.

“They are able to choose where they want new homes, shops and offices to be built, have their say on what those new buildings should look like and what infrastructure should be provided, and grant planning permission for the new buildings they want to see go ahead.”

Where can I read it?

Hard copies of the draft document and the questionnaire will be available at Belper Library and the Town Council office [please ring first, 01773 822116].

The full draft document and all the additional reports and papers can be found on the Belper Town Council website. A questionnaire for completion is also available there.

Anyone who would like help to complete the online form please contact the email; or come to one of the public meetings.
