Planning, Derbyshire Dales District Council

I refer to your recent FOI request received 7th July 2010 and respond as follows:

1) What land for allotments or growing spaces, both private and public, have you requested in the last 5 years?

Answer: No land has been requested by Derbyshire Dales District Council in the last 5 years.

2) From the land requested in the last 5 years, what land has not been put into use for your residents to grow on?

Answer : Not applicable

3) How many planning applications do you currently have which could be used to make a Section 106 requirement for land to grow on?

Answer : Section 106 provisions cannot be used to secure benefits that are not directly related to the proposed development. The question is therefore misleading.

4) What targets are in place to increase the use of Section 106 to provide more land for your residents to grow on?

Answer : No targets have been established

5) What is currently being done in your borough to provide alternative land for residents to grow on?

Answer : Where the District Council is able to assist through the provision of land, it will consider such requests.
