Objection to S&H 1803 for potential future housing.
Objection to mapping methodology which allows the same piece of land to carry two different designations on two maps - eg housing and settlement gap.

Full text:

S&H1803 has different designations on the maps for Shirland and Higham respectively. On the Higham map it is designated settlement gap. On the Shirland map it is designated for potential future housing. Two objections:

1. As a consumer of this information this contradictory information is unacceptable. It should be possible for the plan to assign the number of potential houses to a particular village and avoid double counting without actively misleading the public. Current methodology is for convenience of the council not the customer.

2. Considering this plot for potential future housing will mean there is no longer a gap between the villages of Shirland and Higham. This is undesirable to residents and I believe contrary to the desire of the NED Council to maintain the few remaining settlement gaps in this area.

Whilst this site is located within a possible Local Settlement Gap, it is immediately available, it adjoins existing Settlement Development Limits and it is accessible to a variety of local amenities and public transport routes. The site is capable, nevertheless of being developed by adopting a form of layout that protects the distinctly separate character of Higham and Shirland without destruction of their individuality and conservation importance.

Object
The site is Grade 3(good) agricultural land.
It would more than double the level of homes required in the settlement and would represent a wholly illogical extension to the SDL of Shirland.
A Candidate Local Settlement Gap is proposed between Higham and Shirland. Development on this site would have an adverse impact on settlement identity and lead to the harmful coalescence of settlements.

There is a strip of land which separate the site from the SDL.
Pedestrian access onto Belper Road is likely an issue owing to limited footway provision and streetlighting.
The site does not lie within 10 minutes walking catchment area of services .
Acquisition of further land for access may be required, raising potential doubts over its delivery.
