Local Plan for Derby (LPD)

We are producing a new Local Plan for Derby

The Local Plan sets out our planning policies for the city, which are used to shape new developments and guideIndicative map of city showing urban area decisions on where, how much, and what kind of development will be delivered over the next 15 years, up to around 2040.

The Council is now beginning work on preparing a new Local Plan. Once adopted this will replace the current Local Plan which is made up of the Derby City Local Plan - Core Strategy (2017)(External link) and the Saved Policies of the City of Derby Local Plan Review (2006)(External link).


We are working on a new Local Plan, as we are required to review our local plan every five years, but also because a number of the key things affecting the city have changed and new challenges have emerged. We need a new Local Plan to help the city address these challenges.

More information about the Local Plan, including the challenges it will need to address and the timetable for production is set out in the document called ‘About the Local Plan’.


What have we done so far?

Since beginning work on the new Local Plan, we have been gathering the evidence we need to identify the issues the Local Plan should address and how we can do this. This includes identifying the type of housing that is needed in the city, how much and what type of land we need for employment uses to help build the economy and capturing information on what type of natural assets we have in the city and how the Local Plan can protect and increase our natural resources.

We have also been looking at the land and buildings that have been submitted to us through the Call for Sites(External link). The Call for Sites, is an ongoing process, where people can promote land and buildings they would like to be included in the next Local Plan.

Other useful links are provided on the right of this page.

We now want to hear what you think.


Survey

Are you interested in having your say on what Derby looks like in the future?

What sort of city do you want for yourselves and future generations?

The population is growing, the way we shop and work is changing, and we are becoming more aware environmental issues like climate change. The Government has increased the amount of new housing that is needed, and this has significantly increased the number of new homes we need to plan for in Derby. But what does this mean for our city, which is already built up to its boundaries in some places?

We need to build more homes and places to work, and at the same time make sure people can get around the city and access the facilities they need in a more sustainable and healthy way. We need to identify land for new housing and employment, as well as supporting infrastructure, such as schools, open spaces, shops and health facilities. All this must be delivered in the context of a climate emergency and the need to protect valued parts of the natural and built environment.

We’ve already started to build up a picture of some of the issues affecting the city, but it’s important to hear your views - the people who live, work and invest in Derby – so that we can understand what you want our city to be moving forward. Your views will help us identify the key planning issues that the new Local Plan should address.

We understand that everyone is busy, so we have set this survey up without the need to register to make this as quick and simple as possible. The questions are also optional so you can pick and choose what you want to respond to.

The survey is open for six weeks and closes at midnight on Monday 25 March. If you require the survey in another format (such as hardcopy) please contact us.
