Policy SDC4: Biodiversity and Geodiversity

Representation ID: 6639

Received: 07/04/2017

Respondent: Derbyshire Wildlife Trust

Representation Summary:

With regard to policy SDC4 biodiversity and geodiversity Derbyshire Wildlife Trust(DWT) is concerned that the policy did not specifically refer to the mitigation hierarchy and suggest consideration is given to alternative wording. Example of wording set out in the attachment.

DWT would also advocate that the Council look at how they could incorporate the use of biodiversity metrics to help address the problem of quantifying biodiversity impacts and using this as a basis for measuring losses and gains.

Policy SDC4: Biodiversity and Geodiversity

Representation ID: 6640

Received: 07/04/2017

Respondent: Derbyshire Wildlife Trust

Representation Summary:

In relation to policy SDC4 attention drawn to section 117 of the NPPF.

There is a need to map statutory and non-statutory sites together with the wildlife corridors, stepping stones and restoration sites within a single 'Ecological Network' map covering the District.

Whether the LPA needs to include an ecological network map at this stage in the Local Plan process or whether one can be developed as a supporting document to the plan is open to interpretation. There is a need for greater clarity as to when and how the ecological network map will be developed and how it will become part of the plan and its policies.

w. Land at Churchmeadows, Calow

Representation ID: 6642

Received: 07/04/2017

Respondent: Derbyshire Wildlife Trust

Representation Summary:

Noted that housing is proposed on a site identified as a Local Wildlife Site. The site has a long history of applications and the biodiversity interest has been a source of discussion throughout the process. The current interest at the site is not known and it may have declined as a result of more intensive management practices. However, we consider that it is important to ensure that the loss of this site to housing is accompanied by suitable measures to mitigated and/or compensate for impacts and that these impacts will still need to be determined if not already.

Clay Cross Policies Map

Representation ID: 6643

Received: 07/04/2017

Respondent: Derbyshire Wildlife Trust

Representation Summary:

The primary employment area identified on the plan is adjacent to a Local Wildlife Site and DWT reserve (North Wingfield). The reserve and surroundings support protected species including grass snake. We would wish to see development within this area take account of the needs of protected and UK BAP species in the area and provide some additional habitat along the eastern edge of the employment area. This would strengthen and enhance this corridor for wildlife.

Dronfield Policies Map

Representation ID: 6644

Received: 07/04/2017

Respondent: Derbyshire Wildlife Trust

Representation Summary:

It is not clear from the map whether the proposed employment site in Dronfield would encroach into a Local Wildlife Site that separates the two areas. The markings on the map are blurred and indistinct. We would ask the Council to clarify whether this site would impact on the boundary of the LWS.

l. Eckington South

Representation ID: 6645

Received: 07/04/2017

Respondent: Derbyshire Wildlife Trust

Representation Summary:

Whilst there are no recognised nature conservation designations within the allocation marked (I), the removal of land from the greenbelt for development raises the possibility of impacts on the marshland and woodland to the south and possible impacts on protected species present immediately to the south. The allocated area extends right up to the stream and areas of woodland. Any policy on the development of this area needs to recognise the need to protect, buffer and enhance the habitats along the southern boundary in order to avoid biodiversity impacts.
