Planning is important to us and we work to bring to the attention of those in authority the issues which affect our community.
- Inappropriate shop fronts, especially in the Conservation Areas of Dronfield
- Derelict buildings which affect the aesthetics of our town
- Planning applications for land which could provide better public facilities
- New building developments which compromise public safety and increase the number of heavy goods vehicles within the town
Timber Ramp Footbridge - UPDATE
You may have noticed men at work near the timber ramp footbridge.
Derbyshire County Council contractors have been carrying out the ground investigation for the foundations of the replacement structure.
The work involved the drilling of four boreholes at the Lea Road end of the Lucas Gardens and underneath the structure.
You can view the application which provides an extensive heritage impact assessment on the NEDDC website.
The planning reference number is 17/00618/LB.
Judith Vernier, former Secretary of DCS, has written an article for the latest issue of the Miscellany about this quirky feature of the townscape which has changed very little in appearance since its construction in the 1870s.
