Peak District National Park Authority Local Plan Review

Published: 05 December 2020

To residents of the Holme Valley within the Peak District National Park, a request for assistance with a review of the National Park's Local Plan:


Can you help the Peak District National Park Authority to set policy for the future of the National Park?

Climate change. Nature recovery. Sustainable communities. Low carbon transport.

These are just a few of the big ticket challenges the National Park is facing.

The planning process is vital in addressing such issues and works best when local authorities, local communities and developers work together creating effective partnerships to achieve positive outcomes.

Planning matters, this is why when we produce plans and policies, we ask everyone to take part in the consultation.

We are currently reviewing the Peak District National Park Local Plan. It is a plan for the future development of the local area which we write and implement in close consultation with you.

We use the planning policies we develop in the Local Plan to make decisions on the hundreds of planning applications we receive each year.

To make the right decisions we need your help to decide what goes into the Local Plan, and that will guide development in the National Park over the next 20 years.

Please complete the survey at and find out more about the Local Plan review process, including timescales, background information and how to get involved.

Survey results will be published online. These will influence the next stage in the formal consultation, ‘Issues and Options’.
