Ripley Neighbourhood Plan update 
Ripley Town Council is reviewing the Neighbourhood Plan. The original plan, adopted in 2014 was designed to articulate a clear and distinctive vision for how the town of Ripley will grow and develop up to 2028. 
 
At that time there was no Core Strategy of Amber Valley Borough Council, and a subsequent draft that rejected by Amber Valley Borough Council in 2019. This does mean that any planning decision for the Township of Ripley has to be taken with the Neighbourhood Plan at the forefront of the process. 
 
We are now reviewing the Plan to include more up to date requirements for building and industrial land. 
 
An example of our influence is the use of greenbelt land. The rejected Local Plan had seven sites in Ripley that would be removed from greenbelt. The Planning Committee of the Town Council has been consistent in using the Neighbourhood Plan to resist building on these sites and has campaigned for the new Strategy from Amber Valley Borough Council not to include any greenbelt sites as building land. 
 
The revised Neighbourhood Plan will be available later this year.
