We deal with planning applications relating to minerals and waste developments as well as applications for county council development such as schools and libraries.
Derby City Council (opens in a new window) and the Peak District National Park (opens in a new window) deal with all planning applications including mineral and waste applications within their areas.
District and borough councils deal with all other types of planning applications.
1APP is the name for the national standard planning application forms for waste and county developments.
For more information about 1APP please go to the National Planning Portal (opens in a new window).
Details of current applications under consideration by us and our recent decisions are available online.
Our regulatory - planning and control committee make decisions where there are planning policy objections or other unresolved planning objections.
Information on the way we deal with planning applications and the standards we seek to acheive, are set out in our 'Planning Development Control Charter' which can be accessed on the processing applications page.
We are responsible for ensuring that developments that have been approved are carried out in accordance with the requirements imposed on permissions and that regular monitoring visits are made to sites to check operations.
Where operations or developments are being carried out without permission then it may be necessary for us to take enforcement action to prevent or regulate the activities.
Please see the monitoring and enforcement section for further details.
