Representation 9308 on Examination Consultation Provision for Gypsies and Travellers by Miss Ruth Brookes

Support / Object: OBJECT
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: This site is completely unsuitable at the heart of a long established community. The site is too small and vehicle access to the site from the already very busy A61 would be very dangerous. Belway are also building a large number of houses opposite this proposed site at Curzon Park which will also add to the congestion on the A61.

The privacy of the existing residents on Greenway will be invaded as they will be overlooked by the travellers and the travellers will have no privacy as they will also be overlooked.
This will also put more pressure on local resources, infrastructure & amenities which will already be stretched with the large amount of building in the area.

I think that the council has not allowed enough time for consultation on these plans and that there is not enough evidence to support this decision, this choice of site is inappropriate and should be withdrawn

Original submission

I am writing to protest about the plans for a Traveller site on the green space at Greenway, Wingerworth This site is completely unsuitable at the heart of a long established community.

Belway are also building a large number of houses opposite this proposed site at Curzon Park which will also add to the congestion on the A61.
