They are the questions residents will be asked to help create a blueprint which will shape the future development of the borough through to 2026.

Of the houses needed, half have already been given planing permission or have already been built - but at least a further 3,137 homes will need to be built.

Residents will also be consulted on which areas they think should be the focus of development.

The three being examined are:

A. Growth along Buxton – Dove Holes – Chapel-en-le-Frith axis.

B. Growth focus on two principal market towns (Glossop and Buxton).

C. Growth of all market towns.

There are further choices to be made within the options

A long list of possible sites has been created to give as many options as possible but not all sites suggested will be needed.

Maps put before council members identified sites proposed by officers for consideration. However, not all the sites shown on the map will be approved for consultation and not all the sites consulted on will need to be allocated. The presence of a site on the map does not mean that it will be allocated in the Local Plan for housing.
