Peak Park makes planning easier

THE PEAK District National Park Authority has created new website pages to make it easier for residents to comment on planning applications.

After receiving feedback from website users, all the information on the planning pages has been re-written to be shorter, avoid jargon and make it easier to understand.

The information, at, is now organised into four sections covering: pre-application advice and guidance, including answers to frequently asked questions; making a planning application; commenting on a planning application, reporting a planning breach or providing feedback about planning services and information about the planning service, planning policies, enforcement issues, minerals and waste issues and the planning committee.

Residents will also be able to search for details of planning applications and any appeals in one place.
