Neighbourhood Plan


On behalf of the Parish Council, I would like to welcome you to the Wingerworth Parish Draft Neighbourhood Plan.  It sets out a how the community of Wingerworth wishes to see the Parish change and develop over the next fifteen years.

We know that Wingerworth Parish is a great place to live and visit. The aim is to make it even better, especially by guiding and shaping development and change so that we conserve and wherever possible improve what makes Wingerworth great.

The development of this Plan has only been possible as a result of the enormous contribution from residents and stakeholders. They have played a pivotal role in shaping and supporting this Plan and ensuring that it focuses on those matters which residents have identified as most important to them.

I am very grateful to all those who have contributed to the preparation of the Plan. In particular, I would like to thank my fellow Parish Councillors, the other members of Steering Group, officers from North East Derbyshire District Council, and Neighbourhood Planning consultants YourLocale, as well as the funding body Locality.

You, as a resident, and other interested parties, are now invited to read the Draft Plan and make comments. There will be a six-week period to do this, commencing on 8th August 2016 and closing on 19th September 2016.

Wherever possible, please ensure that you specify the policy or section to which your response relates.

If you wish to comment on the Draft Plan you can do this:
