AVBC Draft Local Plan 2016

Amber Valley Borough Council (AVBC) have published a draft of the Local Plan 2016 on their website for public consultation.  The Plan details and link to the Consultation Form are located on the webpage linked below:

The draft of the Local Plan identifies Quarndon as a “Key Village” in the hierarchy of settlements – this puts Quarndon in a category that deems it appropriate for “significant development”.  The Parish Council and Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group believe this to be wrong and have responded as such, but we need as many Quarndon Parish residents as possible to respond similarly, commenting particularly on draft Policies SS3 and H1.  

The Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group’s response in both MS Word and .pdf formats is linked below and may be copied as a basis for individual responses as required:
