Plans for new houses in New Mills

You may be interested to know that there are plans to build a reasonably significant number of new houses in New Mills as part of High Peak Borough Council’s Local Plan.

If you’d like to have your say in the ongoing consultation, then read on…

High Peak Borough Council has launched a new High Peak Local Plan consultation that seeks your views on potential changes to Local Plan Preferred Options that was published in February 2013, including:

  • The number of homes that should be built across High Peak up to the year 2031
  • Options for sites that could be allocated for housing development
  • Minor Green Belt amendments
  • Other changes to land designated for employment, retail, education or their environmental value
  • Significant changes to policy

The potential changes are proposed in response to previous consultation feedback and new evidence.

The consultation includes a number of potential sites that were not included in the Preferred Options Local Plan. It also includes some potential sites that have been consulted on previously, during the consultation held in Autumn 2012, but removed from the Preferred Options consultation in February 2013. Some new sites that have not previously been subject to consultation are also included.

How to respond
To view the consultation, people can call in at Buxton Town Hall or Glossop Municipal Buildings, visit any of the borough’s libraries or view the details online:

Consultees have until Monday 10th February to respond:

What happens next?
In March/April 2014 the Council will publish the submission version of the Local Plan and invite representations on this final version. It is intended to submit the plan for Examination to the Planning Inspectorate in July 2014, with the estimated date for Examination Hearings being October 2014. The Local Plan is expected to be adopted in February 2015.
