Further Delays

We have been informed that in January the Derbyshire County Council Planning Authority formally requested further and additional information about the proposal from the applicant in relation to the following main topic areas:

  • Landscape and Visual Impact
  • Ecology
  • Flood Risk
  • Archaeology
  • Restoration
  • Highway Access
  • Services

The request for further information took into account the comments made by consultees and the letters of representation that have been received.

The Planning Authority is currently waiting for Provectus Remediation Ltd to submit this new information. It is anticipated that it will be received by the end of March 2015.

Once they have received the information Derbyshire County Council (the Mineral Planning Authority) will carry out a further consultation/publicity exercise and members of the public will have the opportunity to comment further on the application.

No date has yet been set for the determination of this application so it would appear that we will have to wait a few more months before we know the outcome of the Hilltop Application.

Hilltop Action Group will carefully review any new information submitted by Provectus Remediation Ltd and then make further representations to the Mineral Planning Authority as necessary.

(Derbyshire County Council accept representations outside the formal publicity period, but urge that  correspondence is submitted as soon as possible so that it can be properly reflected in the evaluation of applications.)
