Derbyshire and Derby Minerals Local Plan

Sand and Gravel Sites Autumn 2020 Consultation

Derbyshire County and Derby City Councils are consulting on the next stage in the preparation of the Minerals Local Plan.

Following changes to national policy, which require local plans to cover a 15 year period post adoption, the Councils have extended the Plan period to 2036. This has led to the need to plan for an additional six years' worth of sand and gravel. More »

Sand and gravel operators in the County were asked if they wished to promote additional sites for working in line with the extended plan period. Three further sites were put forward. These sites, along with five other sites previously suggested by mineral operators, have been assessed to determine the best way of supplying sand and gravel over the Plan period.

As a result of the assessments, the sites which have been proposed for working in the Minerals Local Plan are:

Swarkestone North, Swarkestone South, Willington, Elvaston and Foston.

The Councils are now inviting comments on the site assessment process. The Consultation consists of four documents:

  • The main consultation document;
  • The site assessment methodology;
  • The site assessments; and
  • The deliverability schedule.

All comments should be received by Sunday 13th December 2020.

The easiest and quickest way to comment is to view the documents on line at the following link www.derbyshire.gov.uk/sandandgravel and email your comments to ete.wastemin@derbyshire.gov.uk

If you do not have access to the internet, you can request paper copies of the documents by telephoning Planning Services on 01629 539809 and posting your comments to:

The Development Plans Team, Planning Services, Economy, Transport and Environment, Derbyshire County Council, County Hall, Matlock, DE4 3AG.

Comments received at this stage of consultation will be used to inform the next stage in the preparation of the Plan i.e. the Proposed Draft Plan, which will cover all minerals in the plan area, and which is anticipated to be ready for consultation in Spring 2021. » Less

South Derbyshire Summer Playscheme cancelled

This summer's summer activities for schoolchildren in South Derbyshire have been cancelled due to social distancing restrictions.

The scheme was due to take place between the 27 July and 28 August and would have offered over 100 sessions across the District.

Councillor Dan Pegg, Chair of Active South Derbyshire, said:

"It is with real sadness that we have made the decision to cancel this year's Summer Playscheme. More »

"I know it is very popular with children from across South Derbyshire and we looked at all the options before very reluctantly reaching the conclusion that it wasn't possible to deliver the activities while following social distancing guidelines.

"I hope that children in South Derbyshire will continue to remain active this summer while continuing to remain safe and socially distanced."

The South Derbyshire Summer Playschemes have been running for well over a decade and are a very popular service, with over 6,000 young people attending sessions each year which are delivered with funding from parish councils and the South Derbyshire Community Safety Partnership.

Active South Derbyshire plans to reschedule a number of these cancelled sessions, once restrictions are lifted, on evenings, weekends and during half term holidays.

To keep up to date with our service and any future sessions, check the Active South Derbyshire Facebook page: @ActiveSouthDerbyshire.
