The South Yorkshire an North East Derbyshire Plan has been produced following widespread consultation after the public launch of the Consultation Report in September 1997. The South Yorkshire an North East Derbyshire area has a long history of industrial and commercial activity, and is densely populated, with almost one and a half million people concentrated in the urban areas of Barnsley, Chesterfield, Doncaster, Rotherham, and Sheffield. The area also encompasses parts of the Peak District National Park, with its attractive moorland landscape and reservoirs, as well as attractions such as the Rother Valley Country Park, and The Earth Centre, a visionary project currently under development. Development and land use changes have impacts on the local area leading to increased pressures being put on people and property, natural resources, wildlife and habitats. This plan emphasises the Agencys commitment to protect and where necessary repair and enhance the environment through the Agencys own actions or in partnership with other organisations.
