Notes about relevant current planning strategy and applications:

Proposed development of 98 dwellings at Egginton Road (Jacksons Lane)

UPDATE 6/12/17: The Parish Council has received notification of an outline planning application for the development of up to 50 dwellings with open space, drainage and associated works on land east of Egginton Road and north of Jacksons Lane.  For details of this application please follow this link.

A meeting of Etwall Parish Council’s Planning Environment and Highways Committee will be held on Monday 18th December at 7.00 pm in the Frank Wickham Hall to decide their response to this application and all comments should be made to South Derbyshire District Council by 5th January 2018.

UPDATE 14/3/15: A planning application has now been received for the erection of up to 98 dwellings with associated public open space and sustainable drainage at land at SK 2630 9987 Egginton Road, Etwall.  Details are available from the South Derbyshire District Council website by following this link.

This application has now been withdrawn pending further information into issues connected with access, highways and noise.  It is expected that the application will be submitted again once these have been resolved.

Intermodal Park

The Intermodal Park will be a National Authority application, bypassing South Derbyshire District Council & Derbyshire County Council. Etwall Parish Council has responded in detail to the developer’s first public consultation. We are monitoring this potential planning application.

Information about Planning Proposals

Where a parish council elects to be consulted by the Planning Authority on a planning application for development which is proposed within the parish boundaries, the law requires that Authority to submit the required documents to the parish council.  Etwall Parish Council has made such an election and planning applications are considered at each council meeting.

It should be noted that the responsibility of a parish council extends only to making comments and whether it does or does not object to the development, giving its reasons if an objection is being made.   It cannot grant or refuse permission for the development. Etwall Parish Council, as a body, will never comment, or endorse any statement, on the support or otherwise of a particular planning application until that application is submitted to it for comment, although this does not prevent individual members of the Council from making their own views known in the public arena.

Most planning applications received by Etwall Parish Council for comment are considered and decided upon by South Derbyshire District Council, but some are considered and decided by Derbyshire County Council where, for example, the application refers to the processing of minerals, disposal of waste etc. Exceptions to this might occur if an application is very large. In this instance the determination would be carried out by a National Authority.


Etwall Parish Council (Parish Clerk) will receive a notification from South Derbyshire District Council Planning of any valid planning application submitted within the parish boundary (note no information is received in respect of applications in an adjacent parish, irrespective of distance from parish boundary).

Clerk forwards a copy of all notifications received to all Parish Councillors with a request to review and forward any comment to the Chairman of the Parish Council Planning Committee.

The Chairman of the Parish Council Planning Committee will collate responses and report to the next Parish Council who will make a decision on their response to South Derbyshire District Council Planning. (if necessary, due to dates of Parish Council meetings, an extension of time may be requested).

Large “Outline” Applications

Additional actions to above

A folder will be added to the Parish Council website planning portal containing the latest information in the Parish Council’s possession and links to South Derbyshire District Council planning portal etc. as required.

An email alert will be sent to subscribers to the briefing network.

The Parish Council may call a Special Parish Council meeting to discuss the development depending on the consultation within the village by the developer. The developer will be invited to participate.  In addition the Parish Council Planning and Environment committee may hold a committee meeting to discuss planning and other related matters.  This meeting is open to the public.

If an application receives outline planning permission and a full reserved matters application is made, the Parish Council will update the planning portal folder and an email alert will be sent out.  The Parish Council will respond to consultation and endeavour to mitigate any adverse affect on the village.  Generally it is not anticipated that a Special Parish Council Meeting will be called however there is an opportunity for public discussion at any Parish Council or Parish Council Planning and Environment committee meeting.

Local Plan

Etwall Parish Council are monitoring progress on the plan and submitting comments and observations to South Derbyshire District Council as appropriate.

Neighbourhood Plan

At present, Etwall Parish Council do not intend to sponsor a neighbourhood plan for the parish.
