Objectives

The vision of our group is to value, and encourage others to value, the unique and varied landscape character of Derbyshire. Our focus is on those often-overlooked parts of our beautiful county outside the Peak District National Park. We work to promote people’s love of the countryside and their ability to access it.

Activities

The focus of our activities is to encourage sustainable development within countryside and other green spaces:

  • Encourage sympathetic and appropriate development, based on:
    • retaining or enhancing landscape character
    • preserving countryside views and amenity use
    • preventing urban/village sprawl
    • conforming to the Local Plan or Neighbourhood Plan
    • valuing local heritage and history
    • preserving the Green Belt
  • Support plan-led development
  • Give priority to development on recycled brownfield Land
  • Make sure any changes to the planning system strengthen, rather than undermine, local democracy.
  • Make sure new developments help to mitigate climate change
