For this we offer an appointment system through the council's main reception (contact details are in the contact details section). This includes:
We provide a Development Team Response to major enquiries. The council offers the facility to applicants who have complicated proposals which require the input of several services, to co-ordinate these through a development team.
The team is assembled and managed by a designated officer who is responsible for bringing together all appropriate services within the council, particularly Planning, Building Control, Environmental Health, Housing and Economic Development, together with any outside agencies such as the county Highway Authority.
The purpose of this is to resolve any potentially conflicting requirements by the various regulators before any submissions are made to the council for its formal decision. This saves both time and expense.
For crime prevention advice you can contact the Derbyshire Police Crime Prevention Design Adviser (contact details in the document). We have signed up to the Derbyshire 'Designing out crime' Protocol.
