Peak Park Parish Information

The Peak Park is asking for an information update

 

We are informally consulting on parish statements. This is an initial engagement stage with parishes and local communities to help shape a series of parish statements we are proposing.

We have prepared parish statements for the majority of parishes within the Peak District National Park. They are ‘living’ documents that can be regularly updated by parishes and us to reflect changes when they occur. Some statements are shared between parishes which is a result of how the census 2011 data is mapped.

The purpose of the statements are:

·         to understand parish dynamics

·         to inform the Local Plan review and planning matters in general

·         for parishes to use as a platform for their vision/aspirations

·         for parishes to use as a planning tool for the future and to guide planning related matters

·         to help access funding for community projects

·         additionally a parish statement could be the starting point to preparing a Neighbourhood Plan.

These statements are DRAFT. There are gaps where information is missing. Please help us complete these sections. You can also suggest additions or amendments which would benefit from a parish perspective to improve the statement. If you have any photos to use in the documents, please send those to us.

With regards to distance to nearest services, if missing, this will be updated by us.

Potential for affordable house – does your parish have any outstanding affordable housing needs and do you know of any potential sites in your community? Please submit a site plan and address to help us identify them.

Do you think your community is thriving? Please let us know why it is/isn’t.

Please send this email and attached parish statement out to your community to comment on.

Submit your feedback (referencing your parish statement) to policy@peakdistrict.gov.uk by July 31st 2019.

We are looking forward to receiving your comments.
