Part 1 - Initial Draft (February 2015)

Received: 26/03/2015

Respondent: Derbyshire County Council

Representation:

The recognition of the four different character areas is welcomed, which, although not based on landscape character, does help reflect the difference in character between the more rural and urban parts of the District. In describing the western part of the District in paragraph 2.6, text should state that the landscape extends "up to and into the Peak District National Park." to reflect that that part of the District is within the PDNP. The same text should be inserted into paragraph 9.10.
The mission statements are supported for each of the sub-zones, in particular Objective S5, strengthened through Policy LP8.

This paragraph does beg the question of how the natural, local environment can be protected and enhanced by building upon it.

The issue of primary and secondary sensitivity cannot just be judged by a sweeping categorisation. Local issues must also be acknowledged.

RAGE has a petition containing 1,000 signatures protesting against building on what are valuable, local GB areas.

NPPF requires net gains, not losses, for biodiversity.

Does this mean that Killamarsh will continue to be a 'dumping ground' for unwanted development?

Killamarsh was also shown as being within the worst area for air pollution, albeit within the allowable parameters.

In respect of the non-urban areas of the District the draft Plan implies that all countryside is equal and should therefore be treated in a homogenous manner, however that approach fails to respect the special character of those landscapes that the Authority has hitherto recognised as worthy of special treatment.

Part 1 - Initial Draft (February 2015)

Received: 20/03/2015

Respondent: Peak District National Park Authority

Representation:

Reference should also be made to North East Derbyshire's duty to have regard to National Park Purposes
Ref: NPPF Paragraph 115

welcome significant referencing of the Peak District NP and to work carried out under the European Landscape convention, the Derbyshire Landscape Assessment and the strategic level mapping of the National Character Areas. The Peak District NP Authority Landscape Strategy and European Action plan could also usefully be referred to in paragraph 9.14.
