Development of site will have significant negative impact. Woods are habitat for wildlife, development would destroy it for ever. Request that development does not take place.There are more suitable sites to utilise before this one.

Site's close to Sheffield border and within Moss Valley Conservation area .It's vital that these remain without development potential in any future plan as development would have significant negative impact on irreplacable wildlife habitat, and have negative effect on area in general.

Any development would increase sprawl of built up areas causing merge into Derbyshire and must remain without development potential in any future plan

Development of this site will have a significant negative impact on the village.The woods are a natural safe habitat for a large amount of the villages wildlife where by permitting development would destroy it for ever which would be irreplaceable therefore I would request that development does not take place.There are far more suitable sites to utilise before this one.

These sites are very close to the Sheffield border and within the Moss Valley Conservation area .It is vital that these sites remain as sites without development potential in any future plan as any development would have a significant negative impact on the numerous wildlife habitat, which again would be irreplaceable and would have a negative effect on the area in general.

These sites are on the Sheffield border and any development would increase the sprawl of built up areas causing a merge into Derbyshire and again must remain as sites without development potential in any future plan

Development on this site would destroy the last remaining pocket of ancient woodland in this residential area.

Important for badgers, foxes,nesting tawny owls, newts,toads, many species of birds including woodpeckers,tree creepers, sparrow hawk etc.

Development would harm the environs of Aston End (Grade 2 *) and damage the character of the Coal aston conservation area, which has already been established as valuable by previous rejection of planning applications in the area.

I particularly oppose the potential 29-house plot at the heart of Coal Aston on woodland bordering Jubilee Park. This is in the Conservation Area and the effect on both wildlife and existing residents would be enormous. Furthermore, it would denigrate the enjoyment of Jubilee Park gifted by the Shepley family in the 1970s.

I oppose the proposed potential development of additional dwellings around the village of Coal Aston as set out in the local plan.

I believe that we must conserve the Green Belt area around Coal Aston for future generations to enjoy. Proposing to build on this land conflicts with the National Planning Policy Framework, which strongly discourages development in the Green Belt and particularly stresses the need to prevent neighbouring towns merging into each other!

Coal Aston is a village in Derbyshire and any further development between Coal Aston and the border with Sheffield would remove our breathing space from the city that dominates this part of the country. The fields and woods are an essential part of the landscape, enjoyed by many people on foot, horseback or mountain bikes from both Coal Aston/Dronfield and the bordering areas of Sheffield.

Further construction of residential or commercial buildings in Coal Aston would completely destroy what is left of its character as a village.

Furthermore, I strongly oppose the inclusion of a potential development for 29 houses at the very heart of Coal Aston village, on woodland between Aston Close/Langdale Drive, Bents Lane and Cross Lane.

I particularly oppose this because the site is a plot of woodland which I believe is in a designated Conservation Area. To conserve means to safe guard, with the intent of the Conservation Areas in and around Coal Aston being to safe guard the character and environment of the village for future generations. One of the objectives of creating a designated Conservation area is to preserve the mix of buildings and land use. Building on this plot would destroy the existing balance of buildings, woodland and open space, which is clearly against this intent!

Development of the potential site would have a detrimental effect on the local wildlife. We see a variety of birds in our garden in Coal Aston, close to the woodland in question, and their habitat would be destroyed were this development to be considered.

The effect on the houses bordering the plot would also be enormous. We need mature trees in our residential environment to help us breathe - both literally and figuratively. The wider world is doing its best to conserve our trees and forests, yet here we have a proposal to fell well-established specimens - this is wrong!!

Furthermore, I believe that the woodland was originally planted by the Chaytor family with the express intent of providing privacy for both Aston Towers and the residents of the (then new) development in Bents Lane / Langdale Drive / Aston Close. If building is allowed on this plot, there would be privacy for neither the residents of the existing buildings nor those of the new ones!

Finally, Jubilee Park was gifted to the village by the Shepley family in the 1970s. I know that there is a particular condition that prohibits any construction on the park in perpetuity. As this proposed development plot borders Jubilee Park, I am concerned that any construction on the existing woodland would destroy the character of the park and denigrate the Shepley family's gift.

Rather than destroy our natural habitat, we must seek to conserve our woodland and green spaces for our benefit and that of future generations.

I am not in favour of the proposed development of as it would be yet another loss of woodland. We need trees to keep our environment healthy, varied and green.
