Schedule of Sites Consultation Document (February 2015)

Representation ID: 2148

Respondent: Mrs Joanne Standen

Representation:

My greatest concern with regards to the proposals is the impact this would have on an already very busy road and be even more dangerous for pedestrians.

The fields behind our home are abundant with wildlife

The areas itself is also used regularly with ramblers and dog walkers

I am certain there are much better areas where build could take place which would have less of an impact.

I do hope, that these plans will be more closely investigated especially on road congestion before anything is finalised.

Full text:

I wish to inform you of our objections to the proposals with reference to the above.

We bought our property in 2000. We purchased this property because of it's prime location, open fields and views to the rear.

Having spent considerable thousands recently renovating our home, to increase it's value and predominantly make this our "forever" home, imagine our distress when details of a proposed plan to build 457 homes at the bottom of our garden dropped through our letter box.

With 230 proposed homes built behind our property we can wave goodbye to our lovely views, open fields and expect a good decrease in our homes value.

My greatest concern with regards to the proposals is the impact this would have on an already very busy road. This road, especially at rush hour and school run times is exceptionally busy not just with cars but HGV lorries using this route to meet the A38. With another 400 homes in this area this would only increase congestion and be even more dangerous for pedestrians.

Also the fields behind our home are abundant with wildlife and this would be a shame if this was to be effected - the government are spending money on trying to keep our natural green areas and this proposal seems to be working towards the opposite.

The areas itself is also used regularly with ramblers and dog walkers and as a local resident, responsible dog owner and worried parent I do feel that with dog fouling a major problem in North Wingfield (especially on route to school!) i do believe any change to remove these dog walking routes would only increase the problem.

I am certain there are much better areas where build could take place which would have less of an impact.

I do hope, that these plans will be more closely investigated especially on road congestion before anything is finalised.
