Parish Consultation - Update

Following advice from the legal team at North East Derbyshire District Council (NEDDC) that holding the consultation count in front of members of the public would amount to a public announcement, and therefore a breach of the local election Purdah* rules, the consultation count will now take place after the Parish Council elections to allow members of the public to attend and witness the count.

The consultation will still end as planned, and on the 2 April 2019 the polling boxes will be opened at the Parish Rooms in front of any members of the public wishing to attend. The volume of responses received in total will be counted, but no votes will be counted on this date. A representative from NEDDC will collect the responses from the Parish Rooms following the response count and take them to be stored in the Legal Sections locked Deeds Room until the consultation count.

It is planned to hold the consultation count on 7 May 2019 at the Parish Rooms. A representative from NEDDC will deliver the consultation responses to the Parish Rooms for the count to take place, commencing at 9:30am.

Any member of the public wishing to attend either of the counts is requested to contact the Clerk on This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

*Purdah is the pre-election period in the United Kingdom, specifically the time between the announcement of an election and the final election result.

The time period prevents local government from making announcements about any new or controversial government initiatives (such as modernisation initiatives or administrative and legislative changes) which could be seen to be advantageous to any candidates or parties in the forthcoming election.

Where a court determines that actual advantage has been given to a candidate, this may amount to a breach of Section 2 of the Local Government Act 1986.

Planning Applications


North East Derbyshire District Council’s planning department will only take into account 'material planning considerations' when looking at your comments or objections to a planning application. The most common of these (although this is not an exhaustive list) are shown below:

  • Impact on landscape.
  • Highway safety.
  • Traffic generation.
  • Impact on existing infrastructure.
  • Intrusion into the countryside that will harm the ecosystem and environment.
  • Foul water/sewage disposal.
  • Surface water/flood risk.
  • Conservation area.
