PDNPA Local Plan Survey

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 PDNPA produce plans and policies, they ask everyone to take part in the consultation.

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

PDNPA  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 they 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'.  If you have any queries contact the policy team on
