Belper’s Housing Needs Assessment (HNA)

Belper’s Heritage and Character Assessment (HCA)  

The Environmental Impact Assessment will be added when approved by the Steering Group and AECOM

Please note paragraph 21 of the Housing needs Assessment says “We advise that the conclusions of this report should be assessed against supply side considerations (including for example factors such as transport infrastructure, heritage and landscape constraints, flood risk and so on).

The Neighbourhood Plan will consider the need for housing in Belper and the ability for Belper to supply that need within the constraints of its Green Belt and World heritage Status.

AECOM are the Government approved planning advisors selected by Locality

Belper Floods in the last century

The River Derwent has flooded the gardens on Wyver Lane and flowed back into the water course immediately below the Ashbourne Road bridge once last since 1965 and once this century.

Flood Risk in Belper parish

The definition of Main River is a stretch of a watercourse that is maintained by the Environment Agency. It has nothing to do with the actual size of the river.

Main Rivers in the parish of Belper are the River Derwent and Coppice Brook from the sluice that is just upstream of Pottery School downstream to the River Derwent.
