North East Derbyshire Publication Draft Local Plan (Reg 19)

Policy SS2: Spatial Strategy and the Distribution of Development

Representation Summary:

No summary provided. Planning Officer has made an interpretation. Full representation attached.

Legal compliance interpreted by Council Officer.

The Council has failed to provide a sufficient and flexible housing land supply for the plan period. The Plan therefore fails to meet any of the four tests of soundness.

We do not have the evidence available to fully understand if the District under the Duty to Co-operate will be required to deliver any (as yet unknown) unmet growth from adjoining areas including the Sheffield City Region and in particular Sheffield City.

This representation has demonstrated that the Council needs to allocate additional housing sites in order to boost the supply of housing delivery in the District. It is imperative that a variety of size and types of sites are allocated for housing across the District and so provide choice to the market and headroom for delivery against the objectively assessed requirement and economic growth aspirations of the District.

Change suggested by respondent:

This rep seeks to object to SS2 and remove land at Sheffield FC, Dronfield from the Green Belt and to allocate (or safeguard) the site for housing in the Local Plan.

This representation has been prepared on behalf of Sheffield FC in response to the consultation on the North East Derbyshire District Council, Local Plan Publication Draft. The consultation (21st February - 4th April 2018) forms part of the process for the preparation of the new Local Plan. Sheffield FC was established in 1857 and has significant local, national and international cultural and heritage importance due it being the oldest football club in the history of the game.
The aspiration of Sheffield FC is to deliver a new facility and to relocate the club's stadium back to its original location at Olive Grove, Sheffield. Alongside a new sports facility the vision is to deliver a sub-regional cultural/heritage facility to reflect the Clubs standing in the world of football.
Back in 1857, the very first football match was played at Olive Grove and the first rules of football were written in the greenhouse located on the ground. The Olive Grove sports ground site is in the control of Sheffield City Council, who are fully supportive of the Club moving back to the City and are willing to offer the Club a long term lease for the site.
It is the clubs vision to once again have Sheffield FC games played at its rightful home. Alongside this aspiration is the recognition that a museum could be created to demonstrate the birth of football and so create a nationally significant tourism offer for the benefit of the sub region.
This ambitious plan to reconnect Sheffield FC to its original ground is split into two key facilities:
 - Rebuild the ground with a new, compact modest stadium; and
 - Develop a history centre and museum

The relocation of Sheffield FC to Olive Grove, Sheffield will result in the existing site at Sheffield Road becoming available for an alternative use. It is recognised that funding the new ground in Sheffield will require the existing facility at Sheffield Road, Dronfield to be released for development to generate funding to assist with the relocation and redevelopment of the wider project. The site provides a real opportunity to deliver much needed new housing for Dronfield which the Council have already recognised is required and is reflected in the proposed release of Green Belt sites around the fringe of Dronfield for 569 dwellings in the Local Plan Publication Draft.
This representation supports the release of Land at Sheffield FC, Dronfield from the Green Belt and its subsequent allocation for residential development. This representation will confirm that the land at Sheffield FC is suitable, available, developable and deliverable for residential development. Accordingly the representation objects to the Local Plan Publication Draft as it not considered positively prepared, justified, effective or consistent with national policy and so the Plan is considered unsound.
This representation is submitted alongside the 'Response Form'.

Policy SS10: North East Derbyshire Green Belt

Representation ID: 7963

Received: 04/04/2018

Respondent: Sheffield FC

Agent: DLP (Planning Ltd) - East Midlands office

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? No

Representation Summary:

Summary not provided. Council officer has made interpretation.

We support the Council undertaking a Green Belt review and proposing the release of Green Belt land around the three towns of Dronfield, Eckington and Killamarsh in the north of the District (Level 1 settlements). However we note that the Green Belt will remain unchanged in relation to Sheffield FC. The site subject to this representation is currently located in the Green Belt. Dronfield is a highly sustainable settlement and the logical focus of growth to meet the housing need in the district.
The assessment of the site in the Green Belt Review 2017 is misleading. Sheffield FC disagree with this assessment and offers an alternative assessment which demonstrates that the site is a logical extension to Dronfield and therefore suitable for Green Belt release.

This rep seeks to object to SS10 and remove land at Sheffield FC, Dronfield from the Green Belt and to allocate (or safeguard) the site for housing in the Local Plan.

See supporting documents.

Change suggested by respondent:

Review the evidence base of the Green Belt review and fully consider if the land at Sheffield FC meets the criteria of the Green Belt.
