We support this policy as it brings a former contaminated site back into use to support the economic growth aspiration of the area and the Enterprise Zone status that has been given, post outline planning approval.

Site specific planning applications are now being received for individual parts of the site and it should be ensured that the site will be developed in a holistic manner
that does not impact the verification of the remedial works undertaken.

The development principles include reference to creating good pedestrian and cycle links. This aligns with Sport England's 'Active Design' principles - please see attached link for further details: https://www.sportengland.org/facilities-planning/planning-for-sport/planning-tools-and-guidance/active-design/.
The development would lead to an increase in demand for sports facilities. A robust and up to date evidence base (assessment of needs for sports facilities s- see NPPF paragraph 73) is required to underpin this and other policies concerning the provision of sports facilities to meet additional demand generated by occupiers of new development.

surprised at brevity of policy and text given that the site is designated as an Enterprise Zone.
This site is challenging as it has affected the setting of Bolsover Castle.
concerned that no reference is made anywhere to design framework which is in place for the site.
As a strategic site, the policy is unsound without reference to the protection of heritage assets at Bolsover, given their significance.
We consider that two further criteria are required, the first should require compliance with the adopted design framework for the site. The second should state "Protects the setting of Bolsover Castle."
