It is highly unlikely that the additional people this development will bring to Dronfield will work on Callywhite Lane as has been suggested. It is more likely they will be skilled/professional workers commuting to Sheffield and other local cities, adding to the pollution already caused.

Section 2.22 - National Trust supports the recognition of opportunities to increase the capacity of renewable energy generation in the district to help reduce emissions and climate change.

Spatial strategy
SS3 Spatial Strategy and the Distribution of Development
The purpose of Green Belts is to keep land permanently open. In order to justify the removal of land from the Green Belt the Council will need to demonstrate that there are exceptional circumstances (NPPF paragraph 83) taking account of the need to promote sustainable patterns of development (NPPF 84).
SS9 North East Derbyshire Green Belt
National Trust supports the long term protection of North East Derbyshire's Green Belt through Policy SS9.
SS10 Safeguarded land
The purpose of Green Belts is to keep land permanently open. In order to justify the removal of land from the Green Belt the Council will need to demonstrate that there are exceptional circumstances (NPPF paragraph 83) taking account of the need to promote sustainable patterns of development (NPPF 84).
