Peak Park planning consultation

A CONSULTATION has begun that could affect the way planning decisions are made in the national park.

Ashbourne residents are being asked for their views on proposed new planning policies for sustainable buildings and renewable energy in the Peak District National Park.

The Peak District National Park Authority started an eight-week public consultation on the draft Supplementary Planning Document on Monday and it is due to carry on until Sunday, August 5.

Bosses want to ensure all new developments in the national park have a minimal impact on the environment and the national park’s landscapes and heritage.

It also gives guidance on suitable renewable energy solutions for the national park environment, as well as conserving natural resources such as water and reducing flood-risk.

Recent advances in technologies are covered, such as roof-based solar photo-voltaics and solar water heating, hydropower, wind-power and ground and air source heat pumps.
