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.
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.

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:
Affordable Housing SPG (adopted February 2002)
The Affordable Housing Supplementary Planning Guidance document was adopted in 2002 as a material consideration to provide further clarity and interpretation for policies HOU 6 and HOU 7 of the Bolsover District Local Plan. As these two policies were ‘saved’, they will remain in force until they are replaced by new policies in our New Local Plan.
Historic Environment SPD (approved 1st March 2006)
The Historic Environment Supplementary Planning Document was adopted in March 2006 to provide further clarity and interpretation for policies in the Bolsover District Local Plan in relation to listed buildings, conservation areas, conversion of historic agricultural buildings and archaeology.
As these policies were ‘saved’, they will remain in force until they are replaced by new policies in our New Local Plan.
New Bolsover Model Village Planning Guidelines SPG (adopted November 2002 updated October 2008)
The New Bolsover Model Village Planning Guidelines Supplementary Planning Guidance was adopted in 2002 as a material consideration to guide those proposing to carry out works to the Grade II listed New Bolsover Model Village houses by identifying the features which are important to the special architectural or historic interest of the properties.
The document was updated in October 2008 to include information on works for which listed building consent and planning permission have already been secured, to revise the information provided in the Building Regulation Consent section and to make changes to the contact details for the Council and the Building Control Service.
The New Bolsover Model Village Planning Guidelines Supplementary Planning Guidance provide further clarity and interpretation for policies in the Bolsover District Local Plan in relation to listed buildings and conservation areas. As these policies were ‘saved’, they will remain in force until they are replaced by new policies in our New Local Plan.
Successful Places SPD (adopted October 2013)
We adopted Successful Places: A Guide to Sustainable Housing Layout and Design as an Interim Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) on the 2nd October 2013.
The Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 requires us to undertake a number of monitoring duties. As part of this, we have prepared Monitoring Reports on a largely annual basis since 2004 that cover the delivery of the Bolsover District Local Plan and these can be found on our Development Plan Monitoring page.
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.
