Derbyshire Dales District Council send to the The Parish Council copies of planning applications for their consideration. Although DDDC make the final decision as to whether applications are granted or refused, the Parish Council consider all applications and give their comments to DDDC. Sometimes this means that our Planning Committee will have a site meeting in order to fully understand the application.

All planning applications sent to the Parish Council are considered at our monthly Planning Committee meetings. The details of the Parish Council's response can be found in the appropriate notes.

All planning outcomes are also noted at the monthly Planning Committee meetings. If an application is rejected by DDDC, the applicant can refer the application to an Appeals Committee who is independent to the District Council. The Parish Council are notified of the appeal and have the opportunity to submit any further comments in respect of the application.

All applications to fell, prune or pollard trees in Matlock Bath are also sent to the Parish Council for comment. These applications follow the same process as for planning applications and, in addition, the Appeals process.

Dates of Planning Committee meetings will be posted here as soon as they are known.

If you would like to attend a Planning Committee meeting, please contact the Clerk beforehand in case the meeting is cancelled due to lack of business or last minute changes.

The Parish Council has recently devised and adopted a Tree Policy. To view this policy, click on the link below.
