Dore Neighbourhood Plan Regulation 16 Consultation

Closed 26 Oct 2020

Opened 14 Sep 2020


The Government’s Localism Act offers rights and powers for communities. This includes Neighbourhood Planning where a community can come together and produce a plan to shape how their local area should develop and grow.  For example, your local community have the opportunity to:

  • say where you think new houses, businesses and shops should be built
  • have a say on what buildings should look like
  • grant planning permission for new developments that you want to see go ahead.

Dore Neighbourhood Area is partly within Sheffield Planning Authority and partly within the Peak District National Park Authority. The Dore Neighbourhood Area was designated by both authorities in October 2014. 

Dore Village Society was designated as the Neighbourhood Forum for the Dore Neighbourhood Area in October 2014 for a period of five years and was re-designated for a further five years from 16 October 2019.  

Dore Neighbourhood Forum has been working on a Neighbourhood Plan and has submitted a Neighbourhood Development Plan proposal to us and to the Peak District National Park Authority for independent examination. 

Why we are consulting

Under Regulation 16 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012, the Local Planning Authority (in this case Sheffield and the Peak District National Park Authority) are jointly responsible for the next stages of the Neighbourhood Plan process.  This involves undertaking a statutory 6 week publication and consultation of the submission, before it can be progressed to an independent examination.

What happens next

When the statutory 6 week Publication and consultation period has finished the next stage of the Neighbourhood Plan making process is to move forward to an independent examination.  All the representations will be forwarded to an appointed examiner.  Following the examination the examiner will issue a report, which could include some recommended changes to the draft plan to meet the Basic Conditions.  If this part of the process is successful the next stage would be to proceed to a Referendum.
