Under the ‘duty to co-operate’ we also work jointly with councils in neighbouring areas to assist them in preparing the evidence base to inform the preparation of their local development plans.
The councils in Derbyshire are split into 4 different housing market areas for the purposes of strategic planning.
The councils in these housing market areas are working together with us, to produce either joint local development plans or aligned plans to a common timetable.
The housing market areas (HMA) covering Derbyshire and the district and borough councils within them are:
Peak, Dales and Park HMA
Nottingham Core HMA
