Representation 9347 on Examination Consultation Provision for Gypsies and Travellers by Miss Julie Liversidge

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: Summary by Officer.

The sight would not be right for travellers as they would have no provision for emergency pitches or stop over provisions. The site would be overlooked by the new housing development across the road, it would be visible from the main road as much of the hedges will be lost to provide an access road onto the already overburdened A61. The site offers no provisions for grazing live stocks and dogs and other animals. Have the travellers and gypsy community been invited to the consolation events?

The site is small and may not facilitate a road provision to allow two cars to pass within it. The report fails to mention the new roundabout that is planned for the top of Mill Road, and the blind hill making taking large vans onto the site problematic. This stretch of the A61 has had several Road Traffic Accidents and flooding issues.
At examination: Written representation

Original submission

Please find below my objections and comments below in regards to the proposed Travellers & Gypsy Site on the Adlington Estate Greenway.

I have received correspondence from you both this week in regards to a traveller and gypsy site proposal for my estate. I'm not a person who would support not on my doorstep approach. The estate is rated as having high deprivation and by introducing such a site, I don't see how this will help that statistic or be of benefit to the community as a whole.

I do feel the sight would not be right for travellers as they would have no provision for emergency pitches or stop over provisions. Im not sure if they have local connection or not but this seems unlikely. The site would be overlooked by the new housing development across the road, it would be visible from the main road as much of the hedges will be lost to provide an access road onto the already over burdened A61. The site offers no provisions for grazing live stocks and the many dogs and other animals that have presented problems in other similar small development nationally. Have the travellers and gypsy community been invited to the consolation events?

The site is small and may not facilitate a road provision to allow two cars to pass within it. The report fails to mention the new roundabout system that is planned for the top of Mill Road and the blind hill when traveling from Chesterfield direction towards Clay Cross making taking large vans onto the site problematic. This stretch of the A61 has had several Road Traffic Accidents and flooding issues again not mentioned in the report.

I will be attending the consolation event and responding to the consultation. Generally planning in NED is a disgrace, having no plan in place has lead to unprecedented development of the area with no feasible way to win an appeal via the planning inspectorate. I blame the leadership at NED for allowing this to happen.

I'm sure there are thousands of people out there, just ordinary like me who don't know what to think of NED and how to vote now.

What plan do you have to win voters like me?
