EMPLOYMENT, TOURISM AND COMMUNITY LAND DEVELOPMENT

Employment

The Neighbourhood Plan recognises that the provision of local employment opportunities is crucial to support a thriving community and to minimise the number of people who have to undertake long journeys to work. The Neighbourhood Plan encourages business and employment opportunities by providing adequate land for current and future employment needs. The need for local jobs was a key concern identified at public meetings. 90% of respondents to Chapel Vision’s survey supported giving help to existing employers and over 90% of respondents indicated that they want to see new employers attracted to Chapel-en-le-Frith.

The Employment Policies listed below do not apply to land that lies within the Peak District National Park area.
