North East Derbyshire Publication Draft Local Plan (Reg 19)

Dronfield

Representation ID: 6952

Received: 21/03/2018

Respondent: Unstone Parish Council

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

Representation not received on representation form; Council officer has made interpretation.

The proposals constitute an unacceptable loss of green belt land around neighbouring Dronfield. In bringing Dronfield's settlement limit closer to Unstone village, the proposals are contrary to national planning policy on green belt, which states such land is to be protected in order to prevent the coalescence of neighbouring communities. The planned development would create an unbroken conurbation between Dronfield and Unstone, with no discernible greenbelt between the two distinct areas.

The plan makes no provisions for how our local infrastructure (schools, health facilities, roads etc.) will cope with the scale of development put forward.

The plan includes over inflated housing targets, which exceed needs.

Other options such as windfall sites and the inclusion of other key developments, which would eliminate the need for building housing on the greenbelt, have not been given adequate consideration.

Change suggested by respondent:

Use other options such as windfall sites and other key developments.

At the Unstone Parish Council meeting on Thursday 15th March 2018, the proposals contained within the Local Plan were discussed. Whilst the Council welcome the reduction in housing planning on the green belt in Dronfield from 860 to 475, the Council voted unanimously to strongly object to the proposals, for the following reasons:

* The proposals constitute an unacceptable loss of green belt land around the neighbouring town of Dronfield. In bringing the Dronfield settlement limit closer to Unstone village, the proposals are contrary to national planning policy on the green belt, which clearly states such land is to be protected in order to prevent the coalescence of neighbouring communities (National Planning Policy Framework NPPF refers). The planned development would in fact create an unbroken conurbation between Dronfield and Unstone, with no discernible greenbelt between the two distinct areas.

* The plan makes no provisions for how our local infrastructure (schools, health facilities, roads etc.) will cope with the scale of development put forward. Many local schools are currently oversubscribed and clearly do not have the capacity to deal with additional demand.

* The proposed extension of the Callywhite Lane Industrial Estate and the new link road onto Chesterfield Road will result in a significant increase in HGV traffic travelling through Unstone Village, the road is already very busy and has speeding issues. The proposal could have a potential detrimental effect on air quality and noise levels, for local people living along the route.
* The plan includes over inflated housing targets, which far exceed providing for the needs of local people within the District.

* Other options such as windfall sites and the inclusion of other key developments, which would eliminate the need for building housing on the greenbelt, have not been given adequate consideration.
