The development plan for the District is currently made up of the documents below read together. Where there is any conflict between the policies contained in these documents, the policy in the most recently published, adopted or approved document prevails.
Saved policies of the Bolsover District Local Plan
The Bolsover District Local Plan (February 2000) contains local and site specific policies on general development issues, housing, employment, shopping and town centres, community facilities, recreation, leisure and tourism, transport, conservation of the historic and built environment. It also allocates sites for specific development.
We asked the Secretary of State to consider action to ‘save’ many of the policies of the Bolsover District Local Plan beyond 28th September 2007 under provisions in the legislation. The Secretary of State agreed to our request and these ‘saved’ policies will remain in force until they are replaced by new policies in our New Local Plan.
To see the saved policies of the Bolsover District Local Plan, go to:
- Bolsover District Local Plan (as adopted)
- List of saved policies (Secretary of State Direction)
- List of expired policies (addendum sheet)
Supplementary Planning Documents
Whilst not part of the Development Plan, certain policies of the Bolsover District Local Plan are currently supported by the following supplementary planning documents:
- The Historic Environment SPD (approved 1st March 2006)
- Housing Layout and Design (including Mobility Standards for Housing) SPG (adopted December 1998)
- Affordable Housing SPG (adopted February 2002)
- New Bolsover Model Village Planning Guidelines SPG (adopted November 2002)
Derby and Derbyshire Minerals and Waste Local Plans
The Derby and Derbyshire Minerals Local Plan (April 2000) (as altered in November 2002) sets out planning policies for minerals development. Most of its policies have been saved and will remain in force until they are replaced by new development plan documents. The Minerals Plan is supplemented by Supplementary Planning Guidance on the After-uses of Sand and Gravel Sites.
The Derby and Derbyshire Waste Local Plan (March 2005) sets out planning policies for waste development. All but one policy (policy W1A) of the Derby and Derbyshire Waste Local Plan, adopted in March 2005, have been saved beyond March 2008.
Proposals for the replacement of these policies are contained within the Minerals and Waste Development Scheme prepared jointly by Derbyshire County Council and Derby City Council.

East Midlands Regional Spatial Strategy
The East Midlands Regional Spatial Strategy was approved by the Secretary of State in March 2009. However, the Coalition Government is committed to revoking the regional tier of planning policy through the Localism Act and the East Midlands Regional Spatial Strategy was revoked on the 12th April 2013 and no longer forms part of the Development Plan and policy framework.
