Derbyshire Dales District Council consult the Parish Council on all planning applications for Matlock Bath. The Parish Council considers 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 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 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.

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.
