Brackenfield Neighbourhood Plan

We have recently finalised the pre-submission draft version of the Brackenfield Neighbourhood Plan. This Plan covers the area formally designated in June 2017 and covers the area of Brackenfield Parish, with the exception of a small area of land adjacent to the settlement of Wessington.

As part of this process, the Parish Council is required under Regulation 14 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012, to bring the draft Plan to the attention of people who live, work or carry on business in the Plan area. More »

There will be a consultation period during which you can respond, commencing on 25th September 2018 and closing on 16th November 2018. A copy of the Regulation 14 Response Form can be downloaded from the link below. Completed forms can be emailed to or posted to Martin Philips, Holly Cottage, Church Lane, Brackenfield, Alfreton, DE55 6AQ.

A copy of the draft Plan as well as supporting documentation can be viewed and downloaded from the Brackenfield Village Association website at
