I would like to oppose the planning potential for this site on the grounds that 1)It would be better to develope on a brownfield site. 2) At present the infrastructure is unable to sustain the volume of traffic as the roads are used as cut throughs. 3) The value of my property will be devalued, I know this is an issue as I only brought the property for its views of the countryside. 4) There are other areas more suitable for development.

Affordable housing would have a negative effect on the locality and reduce house prices.

What is currently a peaceful area would change substantially.

The local infrastructure cannot support such a large development:-
1. The road/junctions at either end of Ankerbold Road cannot support a large increase in traffic.
2. Does Primary school have adequate facilities?
3. Affordable housing is likely to increase local crime and affect personal safety
4. Inadequate local health service capacity.

Oppose use of agricultural land. Brown field sites should be used.

The building line fronting the road should have similar properties to existing houses

I am writing to you to comment on the proposed future developments in Tupton.
I am disappointed about the possibility of using the field adjacent and behind my property on Ankerbold Road for future development. This is due to the following reasons:-

Ankerbold Road currently has many desirable properties, many of which have large plots and therefore command a high market value. Affordable housing would certainly have a negative effect on the locality and subsequently reduce our house prices. When my husband and I built our new property we did not have an open choice on the style of our home as it had to match the building line.
Under these proposals my house may have new buildings to the rear and side; what is currently a peaceful area would change substantially if this goes ahead.

The local infrastructure cannot support such a large development:-
1. The road and junctions at either end of Ankerbold Road cannot support a large increase in traffic.
2. Does the primary school have adequate facilities?
3. What about policing? If there is affordable housing on this site this is likely to increase local crime and affect our personal safety. I have worked as a Community Nurse in areas with affordable housing
and am aware of the changes to other local communities.
4. The local GP services are already overstretched with the current workload.

I am totally against use of an open field which is not a site of previous industry or development.
The land is the best field the farmer uses; the soil is of excellent quality.
Agricultural land should not be used, not just locally, this applies to anywhere in the country. Brown field sites should be used.

I am appalled of the low key way of 'advertising' this proposed future development. After speaking to many people on the Pond Lane Estate last evening, only one person had awareness. It appears the council are trying to be discreet and act almost covertly. As full time workers we do not have the time to trawl your website on a regular basis to monitor proposals when there had been no indication of a need to do so.
If this field is selected I can only assume it is due to the fact that the council are wanting to raise funds and will prioritise this site as it is mainly council owned.

If this goes ahead many of my neighbours and people on the nearby estate will launch a public campaign to stop your plans.
The building line fronting the road should have similar properties to existing houses as stated earlier. Planning regulations ensured that my neighbours and I adhered to this. Cheap, affordable housing is not an option and will be detrimental to this area.

land off Ankerbold Road is currently used as arable farm land and must provide an income to the council that the other prosposed sites do not.

Development of the land into housing would also have an environmental impact that wouldn't apply to the other sites. The other proposed sites are derelict waste land.

Access would be through an already busy housing estate; It will be dangerous, noisy and disruptive for a long period of time.

There is no green area to the top of our estate and if this were to go ahead, there would be significantly less.

We were really disappointed to find out about the land off Ankerbold Road being put forward for new housing. We were even more disappointed to find out about it through a kindly gentleman who lives nearby, as this gives us less time to put together our thoughts in response.

This land is currently used as arable farm land and must provide an income to the council that the other prosposed sites do not.

Development of the land into housing would also have an environmental impact that wouldn't apply to the other sites. The other proposed sites are derelict waste land and have been so for many years.

Access to this new housing estate if it were to go ahead would be through an already busy housing estate, where many children play as opposed to off already busy main roads for the other sites. It will be dangerous, noisy and disruptive to many households for a long period of time. Not so on the other sites.

There is no green area to the top of our estate (even though it was in the original plans) and if this were to go ahead, there would be significantly less.

It is regrettable that we are so late in this information coming to light, and then, only by a resident who happened to see it in the Derbyshire Times. As one of the houses directly affected, it would have been useful to have been privy to these plans sooner.

TUP/801 is currently utilised for arable farming. Other areas are more suitable such as TUP/701.

Loss of agricultural land will have a negative environmental impact. TUP/701 is accessible directly off the main arterial route rather than through an already busy housing estate.

There will be a clear negative environmental impact and reduced quality of life for residents caused by a prolonged period of construction work

There would be clear safety concerns should any access to the proposed site be via Pond Lane.

Development would create a significant increase in the demands for parking space

Consultation was inadequate.

Schedule Of Sites, Site TUPTON/801


The proposed site off Ankerbold Road, New Tupton is currently utilised for arable farming and has been for many years. Whllst other areas highlighted such as TUPTON /701 have not been used for a considerable period of time and are for all intense and purposes derelict land.
Even if the current farmer does not want to renew the lease/rent agreement with the council, there may be others willing to do so and will continue to provide revenue for the Council which the other sites currently do not do.

This will also have a negative environmental impact of losing arable land in the most highly populated area identified on the plans. Again there is a lesser environmental impact on the site dirtily off Derby Road ( TUPTON701 ) as it is accessible directly off the main arterial route rather than through an already busy housing estate.

I and other residents believe that there would be a significant detrimental impact on our daily lives as a result of what would surely be a protracted period of heavy constructions in the immediate vicinity to our residences,particularly for those such as myself who's property directly borders/backs onto the proposed site. The construction of up to 225 houses is likely to take a minimum of several years .There will be a clear negative environmental impact and reduced quality of life for residents caused by a prolonged period of construction work such as increased high noise levels from heavy machinery, increased traffic levels as ongoing access is required by heavy plant and builders/tradesman and contamination from debris/dust/smoke which is always created by general construction work.

There would be clear safety concerns should any access to the proposed site be via Pond Lane,Tupton. Such access would require constructions vehicles including HGV's to travel the full length of estates main access road and have clear safety implications for residents and families particularly with young children. This road is difficult to negotiate at times due to the levels of traffic and numerous parked vehicles and is best described as treacherous during the winter months during periods of snow fall as it attracts no form of gritting. Any access roads to the site always end up in a poor state of repair due to the HGV traffic and will need to be cleaned regularly due to the levels of mud/dirt deposited on them to avoid increased risks of vehicle accidents.

From my personal experience such construction sites create a significant increase in the demands for parking space as construction workers/employees are unable to park on the actual sites and will seek to utilise what ever parking is available in the immediate vicinity.This would inevitably mean many vehicles seeking to park on Ash Grove,Pond Lane and other adjacent roads. The demand for such parking would be from early in the morning until potentially the early evening and is highly likely to cause disruption and potential flash points/friction with local residents.

It is my view that by utilising one or more of the other more favoured / proposed sites the detrimental impact on the environment and lives of the residents affected around proposed site TUPTON/801 would be reduced /minimised and still provide the level of housing required to meet the council/government targets agreed.

It is regrettable that many of the comments from those around/affected by proposed site TUPTON/801 will have been received at the very end of the consultation period due to a lack of information being provided to households that will be directly
affected by any building works including those who face building work if building work commences. At the very least a leaflet drop would had been beneficial rather than word of mouth from a resident who happened to notice a small article in the Derbyshire Times.

Extending Pond Lane is not suitable.
Pond Lane only just accommodates volume of traffic for the existing estate. An increase in traffic would undoubtedly result in significant increase in levels of noise, disruption and pollution, both during building work and once the development has been completed.
Pond Lane is a street within an estate and not a short cut/through road for additional traffic to serve a new housing development.

Erosion of more green spaces; landscape is enjoyed by local community.

Disruption to wildlife and potential damage to protected trees.

Potential loss of privacy in our garden and loss of light.
