Corporate enforcement policy

Bolsover District Council is responsible for ensuring that a wide range of legislation is being properly complied with, by businesses and individuals. This is to protect the rights and safety of the Districts residents, workers, visitors and the local environment.

The Council takes a positive, proactive and balanced approach to ensure compliance. This policy helps to promote an efficient and effective approach to regulatory enforcement to ensure that we act in a consistent and fair manner.

The policy sets out the approach to be followed by authorised officers when making decisions in respect of compliance and enforcement activities. It sets out the levels of enforcement action available to the Council, how we will determine which action is appropriate in the event of non-compliance and how we will conduct our investigations.

This is an overarching policy which covers the whole of the Council enforcement activities. Individual service areas are required to follow a range of legislation and regulations when considering enforcement activity and as such, many of these areas have specific enforcement policies which are reviewed regularly.

We designated the Markland and Hollinhill Grips Conservation Area (2.57MB) on the 10th July 1991. An amendment to the boundary of the conservation area was approved in April 2009, the effect of which was to exclude the Clowne sewage treatment works from the Markland and Hollinhill Grips Conservation Area.

The Markland and Hollinhill Grips Conservation Area is recognised as an area with special architectural, historic, archaeological, geological and natural history interest the character and appearance of which it is desirable to both preserve and enhance.

We have prepared a Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan (955kb) for the area.

The document defines the special character and appearance of the area by assessing the architectural, historic, archaeological, geological and natural history interest and provides guidance on the implementation of certain saved policies in the Bolsover District Local Plan and formulates management proposals for the preservation and enhancement of the Markland and Hollinhill Grips Conservation Area.

The implementation of the management of the conservation area is set out in our Historic Environment Scheme.
