Document Link: Examination Consultation Provision for Gypsies and Travellers - Main Matter 15 - Whether or not the plan would make appropriate provision for gypsy and traveller accommodation over the plan period having regard to the evidence of need and proposed sites?, Issue - Whether or not the proposed sites identified for gypsy and traveller accommodation would be soundly based in terms of their location and site specific impacts, Site GT/06 - Greenway, Wingerworth, Question 25
Representation: Summary by officer.

There is already a large building project going on the old avenue coking works and on the hanging banks site.
Significant impact on traffic along the A61; currently every morning and evening traffic is extremely heavy; adding an extra access on the A61 will cause accidents.
The proposed site is on the edge of a very nice housing estate and is a field used by local children to play in.
Drainage system already overstretched; if you travel along this stretch of road after a heavy rain storm the road is flooded, so adding this development will cause major problems.
The local schools are already over subscribed and cannot cope with the extra places needed.
Local residents don`t have enough time to put up their complaints.
This type of development will not be good for the area

Original submission

I am writing to voice my concern over the proposed plan to build a travellers site on green field land off Derby road Wingerworth.
as there is already a large building project going on on the old avenue coking works and adjacent to the proposed site on the hanging banks site. I feel the impact on traffic along the A61 will be horrendous. Even now every morning and evening traffic is extremely heavy. to add an extra access on to the A61 will cause accidents. The proposed site is on the edge of a very nice housing estate and is a field used by local children to play in. The already over stretched drainage system is at its maximum and if you travel along this stretch of road after a heavy rain storm the road is flooded, so adding this development will cause major problems. The local schools are already over subscribed and cannot cope with the extra places needed. The council have only release this at the last minute so the local residents don`t have enough time to put up their complaints. I have been a resident of Wingerworth for 54 years and this type of development will not be good for the area. I will be attending the local residents meeting to voice my dissaproval of this development.
